Opening Statement of Hon. Doug Lamborn, a Representative in Congress from the State of Colorado (Statement for the Record)
Thank you Mr. Chairman, and thank you General Scott for sharing your insight and for you hard work on the commission.
Fundamentally changing and improving the disability claims system in VA is one of the most important challenges facing this committee and Congress.
We must ensure that a veteran’s claim for disability benefits is adjudicated in a prompt and accurate fashion.
That is why General Scott I so am glad you are here today so the committee can gain a better understanding of the commission’s recommendations.
Congress has helped transform the VA health care system from one of poor quality into one of the best health care systems in the country and it is now our responsibility to put this same effort towards improving the rest of VA.`
Thank you, Mr. Chairman, I yield back.
