9/11 First Responders Health Care Bill

There is a health care bill for 9/11 1st responders being blocked in the Senate. The same way many bills & appointments have been held up by Republicans and some Blue Dog Democrats virtually bringing the legislative process to a halt. You wouldn't think partisan politics would play a role in denying 9/11 1st responders the health care they desperately need.
It's 9 freaking years after the event that put these peoples lives in jeopardy and they are dying as a result.
What kind of lowlife would play politics while the 9/11 1st responders suffer?
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)... He's not alone, he's just the the one in front of the camera this time.

Do you remember in the 2008 election campaign for president how the Republican parade of idiots took every opportunity they had to bring up the tragedy of 9/11?
It was obscene the way they tried to wrap themselves in a flag, salute Reagan and justify their false flag "War on Terror" as only demented neocons can. Most of those guys wear their religion on their sleeve and talk of "family values" and being a "compassionate christian".
Absolute BULLSHIT! These people wouldn't know compassion if it bit them on the ass.

The real problem stems from Bush and his ruthless appointees. Most of them not qualified for the appointment but willing to get in there and serve at the pleasure of their president.

from wikipedia...Early statement by Christine Todd Whitman

On September 18, 2001, EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman told the public, via a press release, "We are very encouraged that the results from our monitoring of air-quality and drinking-water conditions in both New York and near the Pentagon show that the public in these areas is not being exposed to excessive levels of asbestos or other harmful substances" and that "Given the scope of the tragedy from last week, I am glad to reassure the people of New York … that their air is safe to breathe and the water is safe to drink."

Even some guys at Fox News know how wrong the Republicans are for playing political games with these peoples lives..
