Representative Noem Weighs In On Hot Springs Controversy

Representative Kristi Noem has weighed in on the Confederate flag controversy at the VA Hospital in Hot Springs.  The Confederate flags are in an 8-flag historical display.  Noem says the hospital should be a comfortable environment for all veterans who seek treatment there.  While not going so far as to say they should be removed, Noem added that the quality of care the hospital provides should be the focus rather than the flags it displays.  Senator Tim Johnson earlier this week said the flags are offensive and should be removed.
