Johnson Votes to Confirm VA Secretary Dr. David Shulkin

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, voted Monday to confirm President-elect Donald Trump’s designated nominee for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Dr. David Shulkin.

“We must ensure that our veterans have access to the quality health services they need, VA whistleblowers are protected, and bad apples are held accountable,” Sen. Johnson said. “I voted to confirm Dr. Shulkin because he pledged to bring needed reforms and accountability to the VA. Our nation’s finest deserve no less than the highest quality care.”
