Moulton: “This failure of leadership is beyond unacceptable”

January 26th, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Today, in response to news reported by the Boston Globe that Bedford VA officials ignored costly ethics violations for years, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement:

“Our veterans deserve the best health care in the world, period. This failure of leadership is beyond unacceptable. As a veteran who receives health care from the Bedford VA, and a member of Congress, I find this report appalling. This only reinforces why we need a permanent director at Bedford and strong, stable leadership – something I’ve been calling for. It’s time for Secretary Shulkin to live up to his commitment to clean up this mess at Bedford. Veterans seeking healthcare deserve so much more than empty promises and less than adequate services. I will be reinforcing this when I speak with Secretary Shulkin, and I will continue to demand answers and do everything I can to make sure Bedford gets the permanent director it deserves.”

Previously, Moulton led a letter to the House Veterans Affairs Committee demanding a hearing at Bedford to investigate patient safety issues. In October, Secretary Shulkin accepted Moulton’s invitation to visit Bedford and address concerns.
