McCain Calls For Jail Time If VA Allegations Proven
Saturday, May 10
(Phoenix, AZ) -- Senator John McCain says it is "unacceptable" that at least 40 patients may have died while waiting for medical appointments at the VA hospital in Phoenix. At a town hall meeting Friday, he made his feelings quite clear.
Hospital whistleblowers say hospital administrators ordered thousands of appointment requests to be placed on a secret, unofficial list of veterans who were waiting for appointments. The whistleblowers say that was done in an attempt to improve the performance record at the facility.
