"only 10 Billion"? Only 10 cents is too much until there is a way of dealing with the idiots that make up the Senior Executive Service. They are the ones who have created this crisis and throwing more money their way will only support their belief that they are untouchable. Which, under the current system, is just about true. There needs to be something attached to the budget bill that deals with SES so both go into place at the same time. Otherwise, NO additional money should be approved. They can always start eleminating administrative positions to get the money the Medical side of the VA needs.
