Congressman and military veteran responds to VA secretary resignation

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2014

Your congressman is feeling better about things regarding care for veterans following the resignation of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki.

Republican Adam Kinzinger says “I’m encouraged to know that new leadership will have the opportunity to make the massive changes necessary to clean up the broken bureaucracy at the VA”. Kinzinger calls Shinseki a good man but problems in the VA system required a new direction.

Investigators say at least 23 veterans died as a result of delayed or denied care from VA hospitals.
