Miller: Bonus Obsession Clouding VA Leaders’ Judgment
After VA Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson asked House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller to repeal cuts to VA employee bonuses used to fund opioid-addiction treatment programs for veterans included in the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016, Miller rebutted Gibson in a letter and released the below statement.
“Clearly, the judgment of VA leaders is clouded by their continual obsession with cash bonuses, awards and incentives for employees even in the face of the ongoing scandals plaguing the agency. Imagine how much better off the department and our veterans would be if VA leaders spent more time focused on fixing the agency’s many problems rather than appeasing bureaucrats and union bosses.” - Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans' Affairs
