Political Rewind: As Georgia Celebrates Veterans Day, Issues Continue in Veterans' Care

Nov 11, 2019

As the country honors its military veterans today, we’ll look at the problems that continue to plague the veterans’ hospital here in Atlanta and at the efforts of Sen. Johnny Isakson to turn around a dysfunctional health care delivery system for veterans across the country.

Speaker of the Georgia House David Ralston made news during his recent appearance on Political Rewind. The Speaker suggested he may be open to legislation legalizing gambling in the state. Our panel looks at the odds that Georgia lawmakers may give voters the chance to approve casinos and other forms of betting.

Plus, we’ll look at the impact of the president’s visit to Atlanta.
