It’s Put Up Or Shut Up Time
House to Vote on VA Management Accountability Act TONIGHT
Arlington, Va. – The U.S. House of Representatives today will vote on the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act of 2014 (HR 4031), a bipartisan bill that empowers the VA Secretary to fire and replace failing executives and managers.
In anticipation of the vote, Pete Hegseth, CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, issued the following statement:
“The VA Management Accountability Act is a simple, but powerful and important first step toward enacting meaningful reform at the Department of Veterans Affairs—where bureaucracy and failed leadership have resulted in delayed care and bureaucratic cover-ups that may be tied to the deaths of dozens of veterans. We will not tolerate a second-class system for our nation’s best. The status quo at VA needs to change. Today is put up or shut up time for the House of Representatives; any lawmaker who’s serious about restoring accountability at VA will vote for this bill.”
