Following Hillary Clinton’s recent claim that the VA hospital crisis has “not been as widespread as it has been made out to be," the Republican Party of Pennsylvania is asking Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Katie McGinty for her position.
McGinty, who has already contributed $2,700 to the Hillary for America political action committee this cycle, “has yet to take a position on veterans’ issues.”
“Does Katie McGinty believe that the VA hospital crisis was not as ‘widespread as it has been made out to be?’” Sweeney asked. “As Pennsylvania’s veterans look for answers regarding the VA hospital crisis, Katie McGinty has chosen to remain silent. If she believed these scandals at VA hospitals around the country were important, wouldn’t she have spoken up by now?
“Katie McGinty may embrace a strategy of silence as a candidate, but that won’t work in the United States Senate. Perhaps Katie McGinty realizes that sharing Hillary Clinton’s dismissive views about our veterans’ health care concerns does not match up with Pennsylvania’s values.
“It’s time for Katie McGinty to stop hiding behind the D.C. Democratic establishment and start sharing her views with Pennsylvanians.”
