9/11 First Responders Deserve Better

9/11 First Responders Deserve Better

Yesterday was a day that should live in infamy. A sub-committee of the House Judiciary Committee met to hear testimony from 9/11 survivors in preparation for a vote to “extend a compensation fund for those ailing and dying of diseases linked to toxic debris at the disaster sites.” Except many of the committee chose not to attend the hearing. Former Late Show host Jon Stewart fought back tears during his testimony as he not only advocated for the survivors and their families but noted the lack of attendance by committee members. While I’m not normally a fan of Mr. Stewart, I applaud him today. He showed more concern for those brave first responders than our so-called representatives.
