Chairman Miller Statement on the President’s VA Budget Request

2016/02/09

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today Chairman Miller released the below statement regarding President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2017 VA Budget request.

 

"Over the past year, VA has repeatedly failed to keep its financial house in order. In Denver, a botched construction project is more than $1 billion over budget. The department has routinely wasted millions on lavish art projects, exorbitant relocation benefits and bonuses for failing employees. And last July, VA threatened to shut down hospitals within weeks due to an unforeseen budget shortfall, forcing Congress to give the department access to an additional $3 billion. In classic VA fashion, not a single employee has been held accountable for these monumental failures. I will fight to ensure VA has the resources it needs, but given the complete lack of accountability for the department’s string of past financial failures, this budget request will receive every bit of the scrutiny it is due. It’s the very least we can do for American taxpayers and veterans.” - Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans' Affairs
