Stop GOPs from blocking veteran aid

Don’t miss this Morning Joe conversation among veteran columnist Mike Barnicle, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Paul Rieckhoff, and comedian/activist Jon Stewart about GOP efforts to thwart health care for veterans after Senate Republicans blocked a bill meant to aid veterans exposed to toxic burn pits just weeks after the military burn pits bill, or PACT Act, initially passed the 100-member Senate with the support of 34 Republicans and all 50 Democrats. “This is pure political hypocrisy,” says Barnicle. “How do we go about singling out even more so the individuals like Josh Hawley, like Ted Cruz, who go and stand up in their home states at rallies and say we have to support our veterans—and do this as if they're invisible?” Hear Rieckhoff’s answer and plea for citizens to appeal to U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) to help veterans.
