Memorial Day is a time set aside every year to honor and remember those who gave their lives in service to our nation. We also thank all of our veterans who have defended our freedoms. While we can never adequately express our gratitude for the sacrifices of America’s veterans, I am working with my colleagues to ensure our heroes have access to the care and resources they deserve.
It has been a busy week in Washington. Congress is investigating several situations including the targeting of certain political organizations by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and reports the Secretary of Health and Human Services may have improperly solicited outside funds to help implement the health care law. Many important questions remain, underscoring the need for Congress to continue its oversight of the executive branch.
