Votes against Biden’s pick to oversee EHRM program
U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm President Biden’s nominee for Deputy Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Tanya Bradsher, who will oversee the Electronic Health Record Modernization (EHRM).
“This confirmation will cost taxpayer dollars, is bad for our Montana heroes and bad for the VA. Since President Biden took office, he has shown our Montana veterans time and time again that their needs are not his priority. Not only does Ms. Bradsher not have the experience or managerial skills to oversee the already deeply flawed EHRM program, but the Senate is investigating claims that she ignored and lied about security lapses that compromised veterans’ personal health information.”
