“My sole focus is veterans and making sure their needs are met.” ~ Secretary of the VA, Dr. David Shulkin

Dr. David Shulkin, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, told Senators at his confirmation hearing that the VA would not be privatized under his watch.

The Military Officers Association provided more than fifty questions to the Senate Veteran Affairs Committee to be posed to the new Secretary, who is the first non-veteran to head up the VA, and the only Trump Cabinet member to have served in the Obama Administration.

Q: Where do you stand on privatization?

A: The VA is a unique national resource that is worth saving, and I am committed to doing just that. … I will seek major reform and a transformation of the VA. There will be far greater accountability, dramatically improved access, responsiveness, and expanded care options, but the Department of Veterans Affairs will not be privatized under my watch. … If confirmed, I intend to build a system that puts veterans first and allows them to get the best possible health care wherever it may be — in the VA or with community care.
