We have failed them almost from the beginning. They were lied too about the contamination, they were lied too about the support and they are being screwed over by a bunch of ****ing lawyers and politicians who look down on them.

I have one friend who has died of a brain cancer due to 9/11. Two other on 100% disability who will not make the next few years and some others who suffer PTSD and other issues. I've known most of these guys since elementary school.

And you can bet that they will vote themselves a pay raise thanks to the fact we pay taxes. Our .gov literally needs to be started over.

How do you expect them to live on only $174,000 a year?

The entire Congress is broken. It's similar to Game of Thrones. You don't question leadership and you don’t question the status quo. Also, these fvckers work less than 200 days in a year, while the average American works a lot more hours to make ends meet. They should all be put on a maximum service of 8 years max, including having the same medical plans and relying on SS.

If these fvckers were in a company, they would all be fired.

The Congress and Senate are a much of self serving azzholes who don't care about the American people. The sad part is that it is the people who vote these losers in.

Just wait... it is almost time for all of them to kick off their re-election campaigns. All of the Country's business takes a back seat to their efforts to get re-elected. Because keeping the job is more important by far than DOING the job.

Well, there is one thing, that is the sheer size of most businesses these daze, like GM or even Mopar/whatever they call themselves today.....and the tough times they have in competition with all the import shit.....and so they with all the other large operations in whatever field of business have to lobby CONNgress, and since about 95% of our citizens consider 180k/year celery to be a LOT, they have a hell of a time trying to justify that.....

BUT in fact the cost of living there is SO extreme, they get themselves supported by every self seeking operation in town, and the joint is FULL of them, look at K st NW......lobby lawyers repping every business we can think of.....and of course then.........

New clowns like AOC there ...who I think is some nut, but the point is that I doubt the kid went there with her hand out demanding payoffs/support, I want to think she WAS an idealist, like her professors were.....

But the reality of cost of living there in a land of 2 megabuck housing sorta makes 180k a mechanic's salary.....

Looks like the shamming by Jon Stewart worked.

House panel unanimously passes 9/11 victims fund bill after Jon Stewart shaming

Yup, that video took off. Had they not passed it, it would have been very ugly.

Here's a quote from the nypost article
Quote:
“Once this bill passes the House, there will be only one person who stands between the brave first responders now suffering from cancer and illness and the money they need to save or extend their lives, and that one person is Leader McConnell,” Schumer said. “So I say to Leader McConnell: this is not politics. This is not a game. These are our heroes, American heroes, who are suffering and need your help … I am imploring, pleading, even begging to Leader McConnell, to put the bill on the floor immediately after it passes the House.”
Have the democrats adulterated the 911 support bill with some other bullshit to "sneak" thru and if caught, to make the repubs look bad for vetoing or not voting on it?

I don't trust chuckie at ALL

So come up with a solution then.....if everyone decided not to vote (which will never happen) they will stay in.....vote others in and they will reap the benefits....so again what is the solution ?
I would say most people would love to have their job and benefits
