·        Congressman Matt Salmon on the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General Report substantiating the claims of mismanagement by whistleblowers: “Like all Americans, I was appalled to learn of the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General report that substantiated the agency whistleblowers’ claims of mismanagement and chronic delays in treatment.  According to the report, 307,000 veterans with pending VA applications are deceased. This is an abysmal example of mismanagement and bureaucratic failure that has impacted the men and women who sacrificed so much on behalf of our nation.  I strongly urge VA Secretary Bob McDonald to take aggressive steps that will hold accountable those responsible for this fundamental lack of leadership and management.  Our nation’s veterans depend on us to keep the promises we have made to them and have a Department of Veterans Affairs that puts them first.  It is long past time to hold the VA responsible for meeting our veterans’ needs.”
