(Washington, DC) -- A top White House official says President Obama is very angry about the Veterans Affairs situation. Chief of staff Denis McDonough told CBS' "Face The Nation" the president wants waiting-list allegations investigated and handled immediately. VA Secretary Eric Shinseki and the Obama administration have been criticized for alleged waiting lists at V.A. hospitals. There are reports that at least 40 veterans died while waiting to see doctors at an Arizona V.A. hospital. Several lawmakers, as well as The American Legion, have said Shinseki must resign.
