It was submitted to Congress and senior agency officials, stating that “inappropriate scheduling practices are systematic” throughout the agency’s health services group.

All told, 26 medical centers are being investigated.

Senator John McCain, Republican from Arizona, said that VA Secretary Eric Shinseki should resign from his post. Shinseki, a member of the cabinet, said he does not intend on resigning anytime soon.

“I haven’t said this before, but I think it’s time for Gen. Shinseki to move on,” McCain said.

McCain is not the only member of Congress calling for Shinseki to resign, but when it comes from McCain it causes a larger stir. The reasons for this are McCain’s time spent as a military veteran, including a prisoner of war in Vietnam. The agency has acknowledged that there have been 23 deaths across the country because of delayed care.
