Agree, they should have not only bonuses but salary tied to performance. If they were a company with this sort of performance, someone else would be doing their jobs...

If the VA was a Wall Street bank we would all be millionaires. Every time the VA screwed up the government would send them a 100 billion dollars.

This article is largely political hogwash. The VA doled out 400 million dollars in bonusus last year, while the Claims backlog doubled and many people are upset about it, including me. So the VA responds by "reviewing" bonuses. Hogwash. They need to cut them out for everyone, with the exception of doctors, and high level nurses. Why? These people often have student loans for their education in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay back and they can not live on the "peanuts" the VA offers doctors.

The very obvious answer is to pay off a doc's student loans if he stays with the VA a rather long time, such as 5 years.

The vast majority of uneducated VA executives do not deserve a bonus. They got their job by "who they knew" not by any super performance.

My idea...no bonuses but they do pay off student loans for people who better themselves.
