What $10K is not enough of a bonus? I never got a $10K bonus for cost-cutting measures in the private sector. Why should be allow our tax dollars to be wasted even more? I suggest a new cost-cutting measure across the entire government -- stop allowing theatrical stunts like the expensive trip the VP took to NOT watch a football game yesterday. I know William Shakepeare once said All the world's a stage, but I do not believe the government of the US should be treated as a theater with the tax payers footing the salaries of the actors.
