Those VA Bonuses

As Insty notes, it's only bad if businesses pay bonuses. The government paying out millions of taxpayer dollars in bonuses to stumble bums while veterans wait for payment is a feature, not a bug.

If the government's make over of healthcare turns out to be only half as bad as the post office crossed with the IRS and Dept of Motor Vehicles, we'll have gotten off lightly.

Fortunately, the bureaucrats at the VA are providing top quality care, or at least altering the reports when they don't. Just something to look forward to as unaccountable bureaucrats assume more control over deciding what care you get, who will provide it, and how competently it was administered.
