    Mr. President, our Veterans Deserve Better

     

    White House spokesman Jay Carney, pressed by reporters for reaction from President Obama to the burgeoning VA scandal, said his boss is "mad as hell" -- but as Memorial Day approaches, the questions about his public silence are getting louder, even as fresh allegations surface about VA workers "gaming" the system at the expense of veterans' care.

     

    The president has said little about the controversy since reports surfaced a month ago about patients dying while waiting for care at a Phoenix VA facility. He dispatched his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, to discuss the issue on a Sunday show this past weekend -- the most in-depth comments so far came from embattled VA Secretary Eric Shinseki during his congressional testimony last week.

     

    Carney said Tuesday that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors, who is assisting in an internal review, is visiting the Phoenix center as part of that process. Asked if the president would comment soon, Carney said he had no update on Obama's schedule.

    I believe CNN was the first to break this story and have done a great job in keeping it in the forefront of their reporting.

     

    With Memorial Day just around the corner I am hoping this President will break his silence.
