We Need Olympics Reform Now! – DOJ Now Investigating Sex Abuse Within Olympic Organizations

Over the past several decades, the Olympic movement has strayed from its roots. The time is now to take a serious look at the USOPC and if it is fulfilling its mission as outlined by the Ted Stevens Amateur Sports Act. As several Congressional and private
investigations revealed, United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee officials were more concerned with protecting the Olympics brand and producing medals than athlete’s health and well being. The time is right to take an Olympics wide accounting of the
underlying culture that lead to the multiple sexual abuse scandals plaguing the Olympics community.
A Congressionally mandated Commission will allow experts in sports governance, coaching, child welfare and abuse to address these issues in a timely manner, free from politics.

Co-sponsor the Expanding Care for Veterans Act (H.R. 1963)

Veterans of all service eras often face a number of service-connected health conditions that require continuous treatment. As many as 300,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans – nearly 20 percent of returning troops – are coming home with symptoms associated
with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or depression, according to a 2008 study by the RAND Corporation.[1]  Further, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), 60 percent of veterans returning from the Middle East and 50 percent of older veterans
are managing chronic pain.[2] Repeated studies have shown that in response to this crisis, the VA increased the use of prescription medication for pain management.[3] Tragically, the agency treated more than 66,000 veterans with opioid-use disorders in Fiscal
Year 2016.
