Obama Sneaks In Gym Workout But Skips VA During Phoenix Visit

President Obama found time to sneak in a gym workout Thursday, but couldn’t fit in a visit to the Phoenix VA, which served as ground-zero for a major scandal involving delayed health care for veterans.

Veterans had hoped that Obama, who was in town to attend an event at Central High School to tout the virtues of home ownership, would have time to visit the Phoenix VA to show his commitment to VA reform.

But Obama didn’t visit the hospital, and instead headed to a photo-op at a model home in Phoenix with U.S. Housing and Urban Development Sec. Julian Castro.

And then there was the workout.
