VA scandal: Will Obama fire Shinseki?

President Barack Obama promised accountability, but he made clear Wednesday he won't fire Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki - yet - over excessive and sometimes deadly waiting times faced by veterans seeking government health care.

The controversy has mushroomed since CNN first reported the problem last November in a detailed investigation examining several VA hospitals.

After meeting with Shinseki at the White House, Obama held a hastily arranged news conference in which he said he needed more time to review what was going on.

"If these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will not tolerate it, period," the President said in his first public comments in weeks on the issue. FULL STORY.

At 6:30pm ET, VA Senate committee chairman Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) debates fellow committee member Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Newt Gingrich and Van Jones host the debate.
