Taking care of responders who have become ill after working at the site of the worst attack ever on U.S. soil..... Including people who contribute on this very forum, is NOT pork, an entitlement, a giveaway or anything else you want to call it. It is the right thing to do. Dont add any other provisions, or whatever you want to call it to this important matter. Establish a procedure and pay for the care to those who have a legitimate illness from working at Ground Zero. Thank-you from an average American.IAFF-IACOJ PROUD
