As the Veterans Affairs scandal continues to unfold, pressure is growing for President Obama to take more actions addressing it. The VA says at least 23 patients died waiting for care. The president has not spoken publicly on the scandal since it broke; and, coffee prices around the world could be on the rise due to a devastating coffee disease, called coffee fungus, in Latin America that has already done a billion dollars in damage.
