Obama Is ‘Madder Than Hell’ at VA Problems

by Greg Pollowitz

President Obama is “madder than hell” over delays at VA hospitals that may have contributed to the deaths of patients, and is determined to make improvements, a top aide says.

“At the same time that we’re looking at accountability we want to continue to perform to provide our veterans the services that they have earned,” said White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’ Face The Nation.

A variety of investigations are focused on claims across the country that VA delay contributed to deaths, and that officials falsified records to conceal the lengths of waiting times for patients. . .
