The VA scandal has blown wide open, with 26 VA-run facilities being investigated.

In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly said that President Barack Obama has failed to effectively address the VA scandal.

Six years ago, he pledged “to build a 21st century VA as president,” but that hasn’t happened. Instead, O’Reilly said things have worsened under the president’s watch.

“So once again, the Obama administration finds itself facing a scandalous situation that it knew about and did little to improve,” he said.

O’Reilly said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki should be fired immediately, calling him “not competent enough to run a federal agency.”

“The truth is the president gives power to incompetent people and keeps them in place when things fall apart,” O’Reilly said.

“The Factor” host urged both parties to come together to fix this.

“It is long past time to stop the political gamesmanship,” he said.
