As important as it is to ensure that America is secure and prosperous, it is just as important to ensure we take care of those who were willing to put their lives on the line to guarantee our freedoms. The Department of Veterans Affairs has consistently shown the trademark problems with federal bureaucracy by being bogged down in an administrative process that benefits no one. They frequently fail to accomplish their main goal of caring for our veterans and allow bureaucrats that have violated the public trust to continue working.
Over the past several years, Congress has passed dozens of measures to improve the VA and raise the quality of life for our veterans. It is imperative that this work continue. I will work with my colleagues in Congress, both Republican and Democrat, to ensure that the needs of our nation’s heroes are addressed.
