CVA Statement on House Veterans’ Affairs Committee Hearing Regarding VHA Independent Assessment

Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) CEO Pete Hegseth issued the following statement in response to today’s House Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearing on the congressionally mandated, independent assessment of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), which called for “system-wide reworking” of the VHA:

“Today’s House Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearing makes one thing clear: the VA is not fundamentally serious about fixing the systematic problems plaguing the department.

“Instead of committing to the reform proposals outlined by the VA’s own independent assessment of the Veterans Health Administration, the VA continues to defend its processes and procedures, and double down on a system that has failed millions of veterans nationwide.

“Our veterans have sacrificed far too much for the availability and quality of their health care to essentially be determined by lottery. It is time for the VA to embrace real reform, and the independent assessment is where that reform should start.”
