Victory: Ronny Jackson withdraws as VA Secretary nominee
Here’s a huge thank you to the more than 86,000 CREDO activists who took action demanding that the Senate reject the nomination of Adm. Ronny Jackson, Trump’s White House physician, to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs.
After massive public pressure –- including by CREDO member and our allies –- Jackson removed himself from consideration from the position.
Trump fired former VA Secretary David Shulkin because Shulkin opposed Trump’s radical privatization plans. To replace him, Trump nominated Jackson – a man with zero experience in management who is most famous for his comically over-the-top praise of Trump’s physical condition.
We know Trump’s next pick to lead the VA could be another privatization advocate, so we hope you will join us again to oppose any nominee who plans to do our veterans a disservice by handing over their care to private industry.
