On Tuesday, the House Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller, a Republican from Florida, called for the Department of Veterans Affairs to fire the director of the Phoenix VA Health Care Systems, Sharon Helman.

“This isn’t complicated. If VA has the evidence needed to fire Sharon Helman, which it says it does, it should fire her,” Miller said in a statement.” Keeping Helman and other Phoenix executives on the payroll when the department wants to fire them is nothing more than a waste of taxpayer dollars.”
