Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on the results of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Access Audit:

“Unfortunately, the release of the VA audit today again confirms that veterans across Pennsylvania have endured unacceptably long wait times to get care. Indications that some staff were directed to alter wait times are particularly troubling. I will continue to push for both answers and accountability. I will also continue to work to pass legislation that will help to correct these problems, including comprehensive veterans legislation and a measure to increase the number of primary care doctors.”
