No good deed goes unpunished and as if further proof was needed: Victorina Mata claims that she was fired from her job with the Oregon Health Authority after she questioned the accuracy of the agency's claims about the number of uninsured children it had enrolled in its Healthy Kids program. After Mata blew the whistle, the agency was required to give back a $4.5 million bonus from the federal government. Then the agency fired her, claiming that Mata's position had been eliminated by budget cuts.
