Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New Veterans Affairs Secretary, Dr. David Shulkin

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after voting to confirm President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Dr. David Shulkin: 

“Over the past five years, the Department of Veterans Affairs has fallen short in its commitment to our veterans. This is totally unacceptable. Our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much for our country and this must never be overlooked or forgotten. Dr. Shulkin understands there is much work to be done to improve the Department of Veterans Affairs, and I look forward to working with him and Chairman Isakson to improve accountability within the VA and make sure our veterans get the care, and respect, they deserve.”
