AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding reports that more than 300,000 veterans died before their applications were processed by the VA.
“President Obama’s legacy will include the shameful deaths of thousands of our nation’s bravest who were failed by the Obama Administration and the VA. Under my leadership, Texas acted to help the men and women of our military receive the services they need and deserve, cutting through the bureaucratic backlog created by the VA. It is long past time the Obama Administration followed our lead and fulfilled the promises made to those who stepped up to protect our freedom.”
