Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned.
“As a military parent, I have been outraged by what has come to light at VA health centers across the nation. I appreciate Secretary Shinseki’s prior service to our nation, but believe that his resignation is the only way for the Agency to start fresh and ensure our veterans receive the timely access to health care they deserve. It is now time to move forward and focus on how we as a nation provide the best health care for those who defended our country. We must redouble our efforts to rectify this situation and provide the VA with the resources they need to prevent anything like this from happening in the future.”
