Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is facing a congressional subpoena over accusations of delayed treatment leading to deaths at a VA hospital in Phoenix. Secretary Shinseki will also testify before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee next week.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

House Veterans Affairs Committee Chair Jeff Miller wants answers about an alleged secret waiting list at that facility in Phoenix.

(Miller) "The time for requests for this matter is over."

Democrat Mike Michaud says the committee needs the VA to produce all relevant documents.

(Michaud) "So we can be in a position to take action. We need to fix the problems, not only in Phoenix, but across the VA system."

Whistle-blowers say some 40 patients died waiting for treatment at the Phoenix VA center.
