Is it the sustained applause? Is it the plate of food itself? Either way, I hope you enjoyed this video as much as I did.
The PACT ACT law goes into effect
In the last week, we heard from countless veterans and advocates about what the PACT Act means to them. Today, it became law. The PACT Act provides healthcare to vets suffering from toxic exposure and is a huge achievement for those who’ve fought for years to get here. pic.twitter.com/5SM946hE92— The Problem With Jon Stewart (@TheProblem) August 10, 2022
“The PACT Act is a historic new law that will help VA deliver for millions of Veterans — and their survivors — by empowering us to presumptively provide care and benefits to Vets suffering from more than 20 toxic exposure-related conditions. It will also bring generations of Veterans into VA health care, which will improve Veteran health outcomes across the board," said VA Secretary Denis McDonough.
