A recent report from the Department of Veterans Affairs says that over 300,000 veterans died while they waited to receive care.
Congressman Dan Benishek says that the report’s findings, which came straight from the VA Inspector General, are outrageous.
The report stems back more than a year ago when the scandal involving the VA and its veterans first came to light. According to the Inspector General, 800,000 veterans were on the back burner waiting for care.
That information doesn’t sit well with Benishek, who spent 20 years as a VA doctor.
Benishek serves as chairman of the Veterans Health Subcommittee.
