Biden: U.S. won't rest until VA problems fixed

ST. LOUIS — Vice President Joe Biden is telling veterans that the Obama administration won’t rest until major problems at the Veterans Affairs Department get fixed.

Biden is addressing a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. He says the country has learned that there are “many, many” things that must be done to fix the VA.

Biden says acting Veterans Affairs Secretary Sloan Gibson will speak in depth Tuesday about the VA’s difficult condition and what’s being done to correct it.

Biden says the government’s only truly sacred obligation is to equip those sent to war and to care for them and their families when they return.

Gibson took over in May amid an uproar over treatment delays and other problems at VA facilities nationwide, including reports that dozens died awaiting treatment.
