February 26, 2019 Statement
Mr. Secretary, you are currently leading an Agency that is facing some fairly significant changes that will fundamentally affect how veterans will receive care on a daily basis for years to come. First, we have to address the cost of care. With the passage of the Mission Act, VA will need a sustainable funding stream that continues to support core VA programs. I absolutely do not want to see Community Care funded at the expense of traditional VA Medical Services.
