Today, Chairman Jeff Miller released the below statement regarding the weak and ham-handed attempt by the Department of Defense to quell the National Guard bonus scandal.

“Defense Secretary Ash Carter’s announcement today on the National Guard bonus scandal is nothing more than a weak and ham-handed attempt to shift the focus away from the Obama administration’s shameful treatment of service members and veterans. Carter seems to have no plan to make those who’ve already been forced to pay back their bonuses whole, and by focusing only on the California Guard, he is ignoring what media reports indicate could be a national problem. Unfortunately, this is just more of the same inexcusable incompetence from the Obama administration, which had no problem recouping bonuses from Soldiers who served honorably but has time and again let misbehaving Department of Veterans Affairs employees keep lavish cash rewards they didn’t deserve. Once again, it seems Congress will be forced to fix a problem that the Obama administration created but refuses to fully address on its own.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
