No more bonuses

When I hear of a politician or government worker receiving a bonus, my blood pressure goes up. Why should anyone get a bonus for doing a job that he or she is being paid to do?

Who is it that awards these bonuses and where do they get the authority to do so? Also, where does this bonus money come from?

Politicians are always complaining that they do not have enough money to operate their departments, yet they can come up with bonus money.

Come on, one of you representatives, stand up against this injustice and propose a law ending these unfair bonuses. They are just another way of pocketing our tax money.
