Veterans Affairs (VA) Department officials testified about the alleged destruction of an unofficial patient waiting list associated with the Phoenix VA Health Care System. Topics included the failure of VA officials to comply with the committee’s May 8, 2014, subpoena for correspondence discussing the destruction of alternate waiting lists at the Phoenix VA facility. Committee Chair Jeff Miller (R-FL) argued the failure followed a pattern by the VA of ignoring the committee’s requests, saying “Veterans died. Get us the answers please.” Representative Doug Lamborn (R-CO) called for the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki.

Earlier the same day the Department of Veterans Affairs released its interim report by the acting Inspector General concluding that veterans at Phoenix VA waited an average of 115 days for a first appointment and 1700 veterans were left off the wait list. close
