Your Tax Dollars NOT At Work

I received another check today for my travel expenses to the VA hospital. The check was for -- sit down, hold on tight -- sixty four cents. Yes, that's $0.64. I just put a check in the bank for the same amount this morning (it arrived over the weekend). Tomorrow I'll probably have another 64-cent check waiting when I get home. Here's your tax dollars NOT at work. The VA docks veterans $18 a month in travel expenses in the guise of "saving the government money." Those $0.64 checks are supposed to be $6.64. They're robbing veterans to save money. So how do they save money? By issuing veterans one check a month for their cumulative travel expenses to the hospital? Of course not! The six bucks they saved by not paying me was spent -- and then some -- on cutting three 64-cent checks (instead of writing one for $1.92) and mailing them, individually, to me. Oy. Here's a fun Talking Heads song with a very sarcastic title.

Where do they dock the $18 bucks from? This is a prime example of illogical government at work and how badly you vets are treated. You guys are docked money but by God there's money for other things.
