A national audit of VA clinics across the nation was released Monday. It found tens of thousands of vets awaiting to be scheduled for care. 
In response, the Department of Veterans Affairs canceled bonuses for all senior management in 2014.
According to the audit findings,  the 14 day deadline  for approving care for recently returned vets form Afghanistan and Iraq is "simply not attainable" due to growing demand and a lack of capacity.
