Update 2/7/17 from Military.com (Link):
“Members of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee gathered for a fast vote off the Senate floor Tuesday afternoon. They voted 14-0 to approve Shulkin’s nomination, with no dissent.”
A fait accompli?
Update 2/15/17. Dr. David Shulkin was sworn in by Vice-President Pence on February 14 as the new Veterans Affairs Secretary. He has a new Twitter account (link) with a nice 3-part tweet which I believe is sincere. Have high hopes that he’ll be a fearless truth-seeker, able to manage the myriad tasks that will be thrown at him with wisdom, compassion and practicality.
