U.S. Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement today as President Barack Obama prepared to sign legislation to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs:

"In a dysfunctional Congress, I'm glad we accomplished something significant for veterans. This legislation will go a long way toward ending unacceptably long waiting times for veterans to access health care and allow the VA the resources to hire the doctors, nurses and other medical staff it needs to address these problems over the long term."
