Monday on Lake Effect: Great Lakes Funding, Veteran Health Care, Guitars For Vets

Nov 11, 2019

Monday on Lake Effect:

Wisconsin's Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin explains why she voted to increase funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Then, on Veterans Day, we talk with a health care reporter about why they believe attempts to privatize the Veterans Health Administration are a bad idea. And a Milwaukee nonprofit, Guitars for Vets, has grown from one chapter here to 43 chapters across the country. We look at its continuing expansion.

Guests:

  • Senator Tammy Baldwin
  • Suzanne Gordon, author, The Battle for Veteran Healthcare: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Policy Making and Patient Care
  • Dan Van Buskirk & Patrick Nettesheim, Guitars for Vets
