WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the Department of Veterans Affairs issued an internal audit finding that over 100,000 veterans either faced wait times of over 90 days for an initial medical appointment, or had never had an appointment within the last 10 years:

“This report makes it clear that the only people benefiting from our current VA health care system are the bureaucrats who put their own bonuses over veterans’ care.

“Now that we have further confirmation of the systemic nature of these problems, President Obama must direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of criminal misconduct. Our nation’s veterans deserve access to a health care system that puts their needs as the top priority.”
