MANILA, PHILIPPINES — President Barack Obama says the U.S. will get to the bottom of whether veterans were denied help they needed at a VA hospital in Arizona. Obama says he immediately ordered Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to investigate following allegations that up to 40 Arizona veterans died while awaiting medical appointments at the Phoenix VA Health Care Center. Obama says he takes the allegations, quote, “very seriously.” He says an inspector general is also investigating. Obama says he wants to ensure not a single U.S. veteran lacks the help they need. He says he’s increased the VA’s budget more than any other agency in his government. Obama spoke at a news conference in Manila while traveling in the Philippines.
