We probably don’t need to remind our readers that veterans were/are dying waiting for care from the VA while these government employees were (allegedly) busy scamming the taxpayers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Again,this is what “single payer” centrally planned healthcare looks like.
(From The Daily Caller)
An inspector general report from Sept. 28 found that two VA officials abused the relocation program to the tune of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars. To successfully take advantage of the program and receive extra money during a time of salary caps in the department, the two officials pushed subordinates out from their positions and subsequently applied for those newly open positions, so that they could then receive generous expense accounts during the move, in addition to bonus incentive funds.
The inspector general referred criminal charges for Rubens Graves to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, District of Columbia.
Rubens and Graves received more than $400,000 taxpayer dollars for relocation expenses.
