GOP Outraged After Discovering VA Employees Spent 1.1 Million Hours on Taxpayer-Funded Union Activities

House Republicans berated the Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday for allowing hundreds of employees to devote all their taxpayer-funded work hours to union activities instead of helping veterans.

VA records reveal that 290,000 employees spent around 1.1 million hours on union affairs in fiscal year 2015, with 346 of those employees devoting all of their hours to official time, the Daily Caller reported Friday.

Official time is, according to the Office of Personnel Management, "paid time off from assigned government duties to represent a union or its bargaining unit employees," for which taxpayers foot the bill.


  1. Hi Brock. Hope all is well. The Vets are being screwed
    every which way but loose. Another screw job. Tried
    to locate a video but I guess it's not up as of yet. Hiring
    incompetents to review Vets claims against Agent Orange.
    The faster the files are reviewed, the more money the
    incompetent's get paid. Basically, most of the claims will
    be denied:

    1. Really and thanks.
