Jun 2, 2014 Issues: Veterans

Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) made the following statement after Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki resigned:

“General Shinseki has a long record of honorable service to our country.  However, given the nature of the problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, his resignation is appropriate. 

“The mismanagement and culture of bureaucracy which led to these problems will not be solved by this resignation alone.  We must continue to pursue the investigation and reforms to ensure veterans have access to the quality health care they deserve.”
