Honestly this shouldn't even be a partisan issue at all.
It's disgusting that these first responders have to beg for their healthcare simply for doing their jobs in the first place.

Especially after they were all lied to and told that Ground Zero (the pile) was safe.

yes it is disgusting that these politicians (both left and right) are more interested in illegals and impeachment, than to pass a bill for THE MOST DESERVING

America (and indeed the world) needs more people like John Stewart, as well as the brave emergency workers of 9/11, who are now ill as a result of their valiant efforts.

Politicians often don't care about anything but their own personal agenda rather than those they claim to represent.

Stewart made them look like the pathetic spineless individuals many sadly are.
