Heinrich Statement On VA Office Of Inspector General Investigation

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement in light of the announcement from the White House that it is sending Rob Nabors, the president's deputy chief of staff, to assist in the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General investigation in Phoenix this Thursday.

"There are no shortcuts in caring for our veterans. If confirmed, these allegations of mismanagement at VA medical centers that may have compromised the health care of our veterans represent a broken promise to all who have served our country and is cause for outrage. I am pleased that a thorough nationwide investigation is underway, which is imperative to determine the extent of what happened and who should be held responsible."
