Hudson Demands VA Secretary Shinseki’s Resignation

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after cosponsoring H.Con.Res. 98 calling on President Obama to immediately demand the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki:

“The failures at the Department of Veterans Affairs are astounding and shameful. President Obama can claim he’s ‘madder than hell’ and hold all the press conferences he wants, but the American people deserve substantive action now. Secretary Shinseki has had a long and distinguished career and I am very grateful for his service to our country, but it has become clear that he has lost the trust of the public and it is time for him to step aside to allow new leadership to come in and clean up the department.

“Today, I joined my colleagues to cosponsor H.Con.Res. 98 to call on President Obama to immediately demand Secretary Shinseki's resignation so that we can move forward and finally offer the care that our brave men and women deserve. This is merely just the first step and I will continue to work tirelessly to address the serious issues at the VA to ensure that our heroes are treated with dignity and respect.”
