Issa on Bonus Clawback Suspension

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released the following statement in response to the Pentagon’s decision to suspend efforts to claw back bonuses issued to members of the California National Guard:

“Following national outrage and pressure from lawmakers of all parties, Secretary Carter has taken the appropriate first step, but let me be clear: a temporary suspension is not enough. The Department of Defense needs to permanently stop these collection efforts and return every penny to those who’ve already repaid them. The men and women who served our nation upheld their end of the bargain. It’s time for the Department of Defense to do the same.”
