Statement from Sen. Dan Coats on Shinseki resignation

“Patient backlogs, mismanagement and unreasonable delays for reviews of disability claims are evidence that the VA health and benefits system is broken,” said Coats. “This resignation, by itself, fixes nothing. This issue requires more than a change in management. I fully support continued investigations to make sure we identify and hold responsible those who have falsified records and neglected patient care. The culture of the VA must change, and we need to look at solutions outside of government-run facilities. My focus remains on ensuring Hoosier veterans receive the care they not only earned, but deserve.”
