Colorado Senators and House Democrats Call on Obama, Shinseki to Provide VA Audit Details

Last week, Colorado Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, along with House Democrats Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter and Jared Polis sent letters to President Obama and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki urging them to continue investigating allegations of VA health employees' misconduct and delayed treatment for veterans.

 The delegation also requested results from the nationwide audit with specific details about Colorado veterans' facilities.

Colorado's Congressional Members said in their letters, "We are deeply concerned with allegations of Veterans Health Administration employees falsifying records and keeping double sets of books...We share your goal of providing the best quality healthcare to our veterans in a timely manner...improvements must be made to ensure veterans across the country are receiving timely quality care now. Transparency and accountability are critical..."
