On the Hill...

May 30, 2014—President Barack Obama May 30 announced that he had accepted the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric K. Shinseki.  President Obama noted his regret that Secretary Shinseki had to resign under these circumstance, but that the secretary felt “he could not carry out the next stages of reform without being a distraction.” The VA has been immersed in scandal and congressional inquiries following reports of falsified wait times for veterans to receive care at VA medical centers.
