As VA Crisis Unfolds, Sanders Plays Key Role
The Veterans Administration has been reeling from accusations that some VA facilities intentionally obscured the long wait times that veterans face when they attempt to access health care. As chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, Sanders has an influential role in developing a solution to the VA scandal.
This week Sanders is introducing legislation to deal with the backlog of veterans waiting for care, and to dismiss administrators who hid the problems. Sen. Sanders is our guest for a live interview to discuss the problems with the VA, and his proposal to solve them.
