Why Hasn't VA Secretary Eric Shinseki Been Fired?

Say what you want about President Obama, the one thing he is not is disloyal to people who work for him. A perfect example of that is the leader of the VA Eric Shinseki. I have watched with outrage for months as CNN and other cable news networks have outlined how U.S. veterans have been denied medical care at hospitals around the country, while at the same time the folks who have been making that care hard to get are receiving big bonuses. No one issue will cut across political party lines like support for members of the U.S. military. However, President Obama continues to completely support Secretary Shinseki even when it is proven that people who work under him have done terrible things to veterans with the oldest motive in the book... greed. It's time for President Obama to insist that Shinseki step down. No one in government or the private sector should be allowed to keep their job when something like this happens on their watch.
