Nov 24, 2014

WASHINGTON Chairman Jeff Miller released the below statement following VA’s announcement that Phoenix VA Health Care System Director Sharon Helman has been fired.

“VA will never regain the trust of America’s veterans and American taxpayers until all of the corrupt senior executives who created the biggest scandal in the department’s history are held accountable to the maximum extent under the law. Sharon Helman's removal is a positive step, but there are still many more VA scandal figures who also must be purged from the department's payroll in order for veterans and families to receive the closure they deserve." – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
