Statement from Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3):
“Veterans deserve better than the health care and treatment mismanagement that has recently been reported. I expect the VA and the President to quickly get to the bottom of this, resolve the problems impeding veterans from quality and responsive health care, and to make sure those that failed these brave men and women are held accountable. This must include reviews at facilities like Hines, as well as a national assessment of our entire VA health care system. Letting one VA executive resign who was already slated to retire only serves to reduce the trust Americans have in the accountability of their government. Much more must be done."
