Nov. 11, 2015: Congressman Chris Gibson, Sen. Joseph Addabbo, Dr. Carol Podgorski, Attorney General Schneiderman

Happy Veterans Day!

Rep. Chris Gibson (R, NY-19) will join Susan Arbetter to analyze the collapse of Health Republic, Gov. Cuomo’s $15/hr. minimum wage announcement and discuss his priorities for serving veterans.

Sen. Joseph Addabbo, Jr. (D – Brooklyn) will explain a package of Veterans day bills the Senate Democrats are sponsoring.

Mental health counselors, including marriage and family therapists, psychoanalysts and creative arts therapists, can no longer treat veterans in VA facilities. The state does not specifically state in their license language that they can diagnose patients in New York. Today, we will speak with Carol Podgorski, PhD, MPH, LMFT, the president of the NY Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, about the counselors’ efforts to reclaim the ability to treat veterans in these facilities.

We will discuss the investigation of ExxonMobil with Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
