Pressure Builds on Shinseki to Resign

“Pressure built on Tuesday for Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign, with more outraged lawmakers calling for his head over charges his agency tried to cover up long wait times for VA appointments that resulted in deaths,” The Hill reports.  

“Three Republican senators called on Shinseki to resign, including Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), while Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a release heavily criticized the secretary for problems at the VA.”
