UPDATED: Jon Stewart & The 9/11 First Responders Health Care Bill

| No Comments


(12/23/10 UPDATE: The bill got passed!   Happy Holidays to everybody!)

Tomorrow (Wednesday, December 22), the Senate is expected to vote on a scaled down version of a bill that would aid sick and disabled first responders that helped clean up and search for victims at the World Trade Center after the horrific attack on September 11, 2001.  The bill was shot down last week, prompting Daily Show host Jon Stewart to speak out against the senators who voted against it.  Stewart followed that with an interview with four of the rescue workers, which you can watch here:

After nine years, it seems unthinkable that anybody for whatever reason could deny these men and their colleagues decent medical care.  If you would like to do something for these people, contact your state senators (Connecticut's are listed here; others can be located on this site) and let them know (nicely) that you want this bill passed.
