Veteran Care and Whistleblower Concerns Top Johnson Meeting with VA Secretary Nominee David Shulkin

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, met Wednesday afternoon with President-elect Donald Trump’s designated nominee for the Department of Veterans Affairs, David Shulkin.

“I thank Dr. Shulkin for meeting with me to discuss my ongoing concerns with the Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Johnson. “The finest among us, our nation’s veterans, deserve the highest level of care.  If Dr. Shulkin is confirmed, I will continue to use my position as Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to ensure that veterans have access to the health services they need, irresponsible VA employees are held accountable and VA whistleblowers are protected.”
