Pelosi Statement on Appointment of Retired General James Peake to be New Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today after President Bush nominated retired Army Lieutenant General James B. Peake to be the new Secretary of Veterans Affairs:

"The Bush Administration is overdue in appointing someone to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs who will ensure that all veterans receive the quality, timely health care they deserve — particularly our brave men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

"This is a time for independent, forceful leadership at the VA that is accountable to America's veterans and committed to the highest quality VA care.

"I am hopeful that Dr. James Peake is the right man to the lead the VA and will work with Congress to persuade President Bush to sign our legislation providing the largest increase for veterans' health care in history."
