FDA Bonus BS
The hypocritcal statements being made by members of Congress about FDA staff bonuses are incredible. Let's set aside the fact that retention bonuses are used throughout governmenet and private sector. It is a well-known and poor reported fact that underpaid hill staffers get bonuses (usually around Christmas time) and that bonuses are often paid to retain the most senior staffers. If I were Dingell or Barton, I would not want someone to investigate how they have doled out bonuses.
