Report: Another VA center has secret waiting list, worker says it’s about bonuses

veteransIt seems another VA center has been caught with a secret waiting list for those needing treatment, CBS reports.  According to one social worker, there are multiple lists at the VA hospital in Chicago.

Making matters worse, the social worker, says it’s all about administrators getting a bonus.  Meanwhile, veterans who need care aren’t getting it.

CBS reported:

The reality is that veterans are suffering just so administrators can look good on paper.

Meanwhile, Eric Holder has said the Justice Department has no plans to investigate the allegations.

“Well, obviously these reports if they’re true are unacceptable, and the allegations are being taken very seriously by the administration. But I don’t have any announcements at this time with regard to anything that the Justice Department is doing,” he told reporters.

CBS said the Senate is set to look into the allegations on Thursday.
