Obama on VA allegations: 'I will not stand for it' - CNN.com
Seems to me he stood for it a long time."I will not stand for it," President Barack Obama said Wednesday when it comes to allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals. Obama said he understands the public wants a "swift reckoning" in the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal, but he asked for time to allow the investigation into allegations of cooked books to run its course.
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is committed to solving the department's problems, Obama added, but it has been made clear to him that there will be accountability throughout the VA system.
Under criticism for failing to act on a growing controversy, President Barack Obama met Wednesday with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki about the controversy over cooked books that covered up deadly delays for veterans to receive care.
