Segment 1: Will Attig from The Union Veterans Council joins us to talk about how the problem with the VA Hospital is not the workers it is the administration and congress who refuse to staff and fund the VA so that it can work properly.
Segment 2: Nikki Wentling of Stars and Stripes comes on the program to talk about the difficulties that a research project to see how marijuana can help veterans with PTSD and TBI because they are having a hard time finding eligible candidates. It also is unclear as to why the VA is not doing better to get more participants for this important research.
Segment 3: Joe Malizia and Jim Rihel of AFGE Local 940 join us to urge people to support bills 3459 and S1723 which fully fund and staff the VA. These VA issues are not partisan issues and shouldn’t be so difficult for congress to pass.
