"Until the President outlines a vision and an effective plan for addressing the broad dysfunction at the VA, today's announcement really changes nothing," Boehner said in a statement. "One personnel change cannot be used as an excuse to paper over a systemic problem. Our veterans deserve better, and we will hold the President accountable until he makes things right."

Boehner also called on the Senate to immediately take up the VA Management and Accountability Act, which passed the House last week and would give the head of the agency more authority to dismiss senior executives.
