Republicans and Democrats are calling for V.A. Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign in light of the scandals popping up at VA Hospitals around the country. A report Wednesday put even more pressure on Shinseki according to POLITICO.

The review released Wednesday found at least 1,700 veterans waiting for health care at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs medical facility were not included on the facility’s wait list, and patients there waited an average of 115 days for their first appointments. The probe also documented several schemes used at VA facilities intended to conceal wait times and concluded that the problems are national in scope.

The revelations increased the pressure on Obama as Republicans seek to portray his administration as dysfunctional. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough briefed Obama on the report. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Obama “found the findings extremely troubling.”
