Boehner Says Shinseki's Resignation 'Really Changes Nothing'

Following the resignation Friday morning of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, criticized President Barack Obama again for not doing more to solve problems surrounding the scheduling system and waiting lists at the Phoenix VA Health Care System.

"[Shinseki's] resignation, though, does not absolve the president of his responsibility to step in and make things right for our veterans," Boehner said during a Friday afternoon news conference. "Business as usual cannot continue. And until the president outlines a vision and an effective plan for addressing the broad dysfunction at the VA, today's announcement really changes nothing. One personnel change cannot be used as an excuse to paper over a systemic problem."
