House Republicans react…
Apologizing & resigning was the right thing for Sec. Shinseki to do, but we owe it to our #veterans to get to bottom of VA mismanagement.

President Obama right to allow Sec Shinseki to step down. Message must be sent at the VA that failing our veterans will not be tolerated.

#VAaccountability does not stop with Sec. Shinseki’s resignation, the VA has systemic problems that must be addressed.

VA Sec. Shinseki’s resignation was a necessary first step so we can address systemic failures and ensure our veterans get care they deserve. — John Kline (@repjohnkline) May 30, 2014
Sec Shinseki resignation = a step forward, but must be followed w/ swift/concrete action to ensure our vets are never treated this way again

Sec. Shinseki’s resignation is the 1st step in a long journey to restoring #VAaccountability and getting our veterans the care they deserve.

Pleased that Sec. Shinseki made the right decision to resign, however, our work is not done. This is just the first step in fixing the VA. — Paul Broun (@RepPaulBrounMD) May 30, 2014
The resignation of Secretary Eric Shinseki is coming too late for thousands of veterans who have been let down by the VA.

We have to make certain that no veteran ever again has to suffer the misery and neglect of a broken system. #Shinseki

Sec. Shinseki made the right decision to resign, but we're far from solving the VA’s problems. http://t.co/45gXz3EZUX

The problems at the VA are systemic, and General Shinseki's resignation does not solve any of these very serious issues. #VAaccountability
