Vets wait while VA big shots get bonuses

The Department of Veterans Affairs has long been a priceless aid to America's brave war vets. In recent years, however, a few people at the top have deliberately mismanaged and looted the VA - which has diminished the quality of care the VA provides.

Much of this was a politically motivated effort to "prove" the VA doesn't work. Perhaps more of it was motivated by personal greed of Bush cronies.

While injured veterans have been waiting for their VA payments as the backlog grows, now it's been revealed that - throughout 2007 and 2008 - Bush political appointees at the VA were looting the department to give themselves and their friends huge pay bonuses.

This greed by highly ranked VA officials has cost our vets $24,000,000.
