Demanding Better Oversight of the VA
On Wednesday, Washington Senator Patty Murray spoke on the Senate floor about the need for increased oversight for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). I shared with other members of the Senate several disappointing reasons why we need to take a closer look at this Administration approach to caring for our nation's veterans.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
