Crossroads GPS: Time for Reid to Act on VA Management & Accountability Bill

WASHINGTON – Crossroads GPS president & CEO Steven Law today issued the following statement regarding Secretary Shinseki’s resignation and current legislation that would strengthen accountability at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA): 

“Shinseki’s resignation is appropriate but is only 1% of the solution.  The VA’s leaders urgently need the management tools which the VA Management and Accountability Act would give them.  Crossroads GPS will continue to put pressure on Democratic Senators to reject Harry Reid’s foolish blockade of bipartisan Republican-crafted legislation to shake up the VA.  This is not about politics; it’s about doing what’s right to clean up President Obama’s latest and most egregious management fiasco.” 

NOTE: Crossroads GPS is running an issue advocacy ad on TV in Alaska urging action on the VA Management and Accountability Act. The spot can be viewed here.
