Senator Murray Responds to CBS Report

The day after CBS News aired its investigation revealing alarmingly high rates of suicide among veterans, Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) spoke on the Senate floor in response.

Senator Murray was featured in the CBS report expressing her dismay at the findings and discussing her frustration with the trying to get an accurate assessment just how many veterans are committing suicide from the Department of Veterans Affairs. On the Senate floor she said the VA "has failed to plan, failed to own up to its responsibilities, and failed even to keep complete statistics on the impact of the war on its veterans."
