Got Your 6 Issues Support Letter Prior to Dr. Shulkin Hearing

"Dr. Shulkin has demonstrated his unwavering commitment of serving our veterans and our nation"

WASHINGTON (February 1, 2017) – Late yesterday, Got Your 6’s Executive Director Bill Rausch sent a letter to U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Johnny Isakson and Ranking Member Jon Tester reinforcing the organization’s support for Dr. David Shulkin’s nomination as the ninth Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

In the letter Rausch writes, “We believe that when the Department of Veterans Affairs is successful, veterans are successful. That’s why during Dr. David Shulkin’s time as VA Under Secretary Health, Got Your 6 worked closely with him to reform VA while putting veterans first. Over that time, Dr. Shulkin helped propel VA along a transformational path that sets the current administration up for success. While Dr. Shulkin does not have our shared experience of military service, he has demonstrated his unwavering commitment of serving our veterans and our nation through his work at the VA.”

The full letter is below.

Dr. Shulkin’s nomination hearing is scheduled for 2:30pm today.
