WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement today after a press conference about protecting America’s veterans and holding the VA accountable.

“The flaws within the VA all across the country are rampant and egregious. As we’ve seen in recent weeks, far too many of our veterans have been impacted by the VA’s widespread mismanagement. We must bring the VA into the 21st century, increase accountability among its leaders, and protect the brave men and women who have, for so long, protected us. Because too often, our veterans don’t get the care that they need and that they were promised.”
