Rep. Ted Yoho urges support for WINGMANRep. Ted S. Yoho gave a speech on the House floor urging his colleagues to support his bill (HR 5166 WINGMAN). Which later passed with bipartisan support. The bill will grant certified congressional staff access to the files they already have permission to possess, but eliminates the burdensome step of having to use the VA as a middle-man to receive them. Under WINGMAN, advocates would be able to access the status of a pending claim, medical records, comp and pen records, rating decisions, statement of the case, supplementary statement of the case, notice of disagreement, and Form-9 files within a reasonable amount of time, without having to go through a middle-man.

Yoho offered a common sense amendment to the 2017 Energy and Water Appropriations (H.R. 5055 ) that reduce the size of out-of-control federal departments that continue to grow annually, increasing in both scope and size. His amendment establishes a 5% across the board cut to the Department of Energy’s total employees.

The federal government should be making the same decisions.
