Audit finds VA manipulated vet's appointment data

A new report out shows workers falsified some records at the VA hospitals in White City and Roseburg to cover up the long wait times for vets to get medical care.

The Oregonian reports in White City 50% of the schedulers interviewed told federal auditors they were pressured to alter scheduling records. In Roseburg 30% of those interviewed said the same.

The House of Representatives approved a 16 billion dollar bill to overhaul the VA on Wednesday.

The bill now goes to the Senate, which is expected to vote as early as tomorrow.
