  •  Shinseki should not resign if he (4+ / 0-)

    feels that he can fix the problems.  If he can't do his job effectively then he should resign.  Obama took the same approach with Sebelius and it worked out with respect to the ACA.

    He has done a number of good things since coming to the VA and I think the guy has been overwhelmed by what he inherited: a technologically and bureaucratically archaic government department saddled by a very high patient load due to Bush's 2 wars.  We also have to take into account that the types of injuries that these soldiers have require much more active longer-term care and the aging of the veteran population which is also testing the limits of the system.  I don't think anyone could be expected to right the ship in such a short period of time.
