Today on Real Talk with Rashad Richey our special guest was Congressman David Scott. Congressman Scott recently expressed his outrage with President Barack Obama and Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, and veteran’s allegations of misconduct, and medical malpractice. The most egregious allegation being veterans whom were injured in Iraq or who suffered from severe cases of post traumatic stress disorder, being placed on waiting lists and were not able to see a doctor until after a six, or nine month waiting period. In a recent speech, Congressman Scott demanded that President Obama be actively involved and create a sense of urgency for those involved in Veteran’s Affairs in efforts to punish those whom are responsible for the VA scandal and to correct the issues so that our veterans receive proper treatment. Listen to some clips from today’s show below.
