In a press conference today, President Obama touted the “progress” his administration has made in veteran care, as the Veterans Administration is embroiled in a scandal over secret waiting lists that may have resulted in the deaths of over 40 veterans across the country.
“We have made progress over the last five years. We’ve made historic investments in our veterans.”
AP reported today that the investigation has now expanded to 26 facilities nationwide. But as the scandal widens, Obama urged Americans to wait for the Inspector General’s investigation and refused to take any administrative action with regard to VA Secretary Erik Shinseki.
After his statement, the President took just two press questions.
