Ohio U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says the Trump administration cost the VA and veterans valuable time through the firing of former VA Secretary David Shulkin and botched attempt to name his replacement, Dr. Ronny Jackson.

Ohio's U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown hasn’t decided whether he will vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee for VA  secretary. The Ohio Democrat sits on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs committee, which could hold hearings on Dr. Ronny Jackson’s nomination as early as next week. Brown met with Jackson Tuesday to discuss attempts to privatize health care for veterans.
