Rubens For US Senate - Shinseki Resignation Only a First Step

 Jim Rubens, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement following the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki:

"Secretary Shinseki's resignation is thoroughly warranted, but the unforgivable problems in the VA System remain. All those culpable for falsifying veterans healthcare wait list records should be criminally prosecuted. As I've been saying since the moment this story broke, vets on extended wait lists and those being forced to drive long distances to get the care we owe them must be given vouchers so that they can access the provider or hospital of their choice.

"Another serious question remains. Why didn't Jeanne Shaheen and Scott Brown demand and get action when they learned about this problem two years ago?"

Jim Rubens has been calling for accountability and installation of a voucher program for over a month. Rubens was on WMUR this week talking about this issue. Those on the extended wait-list cannot afford to wait any longer.
