Rules of the Game: The Bolder Advocacy Podcast

We talk a lot about advocacy, but what's advocacy without some wins? On this episode, we highlight some of the victories nonprofit advocates have achieved at the state and federal level. Attorneys for this episode Nona Randois Victor Rivera Tim Mooney   California This summer California made history as the first state to agree to fully remove exclusions for Medi-Cal health coverage (California's version of Medicaid) for all who are income eligible, regardless of immigration status. This year's budget removed the final exclusions for that population, who will be eligible to access health coverage through Medi-Cal starting by January, 2024. California Immigrant Policy Center and Health Access California formed the #Health4All coalition in 2013. By 2022, the coalition consisted of 180 state and national organizations committed to health and racial justice. Bolder Advocacy has supported California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC), Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliates, Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Public Health Institute, and many other members of the #Health4All coalition by providing training and technical assistance throughout this effort. Comment by Sarah Dar, the Director of Health and Public Benefits Policy at CIPC   Texas PN3 A pre-natal to 3 collaborative whose mission statement is that all Texas children are born healthy and have equitable access to health and early learning support in their homes and communities. They were able to advocate for an expansion to post-partum Medicaid coverage for Texas moms during the last Texas legislative session. During the most recent legislative session, the Texas House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a bill that offered 12 months of coverage. However, the Texas Senate amended the legislation to six months instead. While the application is still in review, the work done by groups like PN3 has already made a significant impact.

For the 5 million veterans who served overseas in the last couple of decades, burn pit exposure continues to pose a threat to their well-being. Toxic fumes have triggered breathing troubles and other serious health conditions in more than 12,500 veterans between 2007 and 2020. Our guest, Anthony Szema, MD, has worked not only to diagnose and treat these burn pit-related issues, but better understand them through research and advocacy. He recently joined several patients and fellow advocates at the White House to witness the signing of the PACT Act — new legislation that will help veterans suffering from burn pit exposure get treatment. On this episode, Dr. Szema, who is director of Northwell Health's International Center of Excellence in Deployment Health and Medical Geosciences, shares his extensive knowledge of burn pits, the impact they've had on his patients, and his experience at the White House. He also shares the recommendations he made to the Senate Armed Services Committee to prevent future exposures.

The PACT Act had a years-long, tumultuous journey to getting signed into law this week. It is meant to provide expanded health care for veterans affected by burnpit toxins and other exposures incurred during their service. Veterans and their advocates camped outside of the Capitol for six days waiting for a moment that was years in the making and one that many of their friends and family – who died from toxic exposure – could not see themselves. “Never again,” one veteran said.

On this Monday edition of Bernie & Sid in the Morning, the guys give their thoughts on the Senate blocking the Jon Stewart-backed bill to aid military veterans exposed to toxic burn pits during their service. Stewart is claiming that the Republicans in the Senate are behind the blockage, while cold hard facts tell us that it's Chuck Schumer and the Democrats who are trying to stuff the bill with more non-relevant inflationary spending. Stewart and the Democrats may be able to fool most of America, but not Bernie & Sid, they know where the blame truly lies. In other news of the day, former President Donald Trump weighs in on the potential prisoner trade currently on the table to bring WNBA star Brittney Griner home from Russia, Trump embraces a "Let's Go Brandon" chant at the LIV Golf event he hosted this past weekend, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sets off for Asia while the Chinese threaten to literally shoot her plane down if she flies over Taiwan, President Joe Biden tests positive for COVID for a second time in as many weeks, TikTok is giving China all the data they need to crumble us, fellow 77 WABC Radio hosts Greg Kelly and Rudy Giuliani contrast one another when it comes to who exactly was responsible for bringing down the "squeegee guys," Jimmy Fallon hops on the bandwagon and pokes fun at President Biden's incompetence, and Ukrainian diplomat Ihor Zhovka tells Americans they need to "sacrifice their cozy life to help Ukraine."

Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a bill to help veterans exposed to toxic burn pits weeks after the measure initially sailed through the Senate with 84 votes, angering Democrats, veterans groups and comedian Jon Stewart, a leading proponent to aid the community. Sen. Jon Tester, chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, was particularly incensed by the turn of events. Tester, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, other lawmakers and Stewart on Thursday morning joined veterans outside the Capitol — who originally came to Washington to see the bill pass — to assail the GOP. “It just makes the gut punch that more devastating,” Stewart said, given the number of veterans who came to Washington hoping the bill would pass. “Their constituents are dying.” “This is a disgrace,” he added.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
