“Our veterans have sacrificed so much for this nation, and that sacrifice should not continue when they come back home. They deserve the highest quality timely medical care. Recent reports of mismanagement and long wait times in Memphis and across the 8th district are disturbing, and we must make sure those involved in this kind of misconduct are held accountable.” – Congressman David Kustoff
Supporting our Veterans:
- I have joined my colleagues in voting for a number of bills to help strengthen protections for our veterans. We passed legislation that allows the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to take appropriate action against VA employees who are underperforming, speeds up the appeals process, recruit and retain top physicians, and shorten wait times.
- Along with my support, Congress passed and the President signed into law legislation that will enable veterans to use the education benefit they have earned through the GI bill when it suits them best. This gives our veterans more flexibility with their education and sets them up for future success.
