    Feel free to send a message to Senator Jon Kyl (R) Arizona for his asinine comments starting at the 6:20 mark.

    Default 9/11 Health Bill Wins Support From G.O.P.

    Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand said Saturday that she and other sponsors of a stalled 9/11 health bill had won new Republican support for the measure and intended to try again to pass it before the end of the 111th Congress. Democrats intended to resurrect the health initiative in the coming days after falling three votes short of breaking a filibuster against it earlier this month. “We have the votes we need,” Ms. Gillibrand said. “We have indications from several Republicans that they very much want to vote for this bill.” The $7.4 billion measure is intended to provide medical care to workers and others who had become ill as a result of being exposed to toxic debris and fumes at the site of the World Trade Center attack in 2001. Republicans have raised concerns about how to pay for the program, and Ms. Gillibrand said the bill’s authors have identified ways to cover the costs through new federal fees that are acceptable to enough Republicans to advance the measure. It stalled on a party line vote of 57 to 42 when 60 votes were required. She said the Senate could consider the measure after it concludes debate over a nuclear weapons treaty. But with Congress trying to adjourn before Christmas, time is running short, and it is unclear how many additional bills can reach the floor. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, has indicated that he is open to allowing another vote on the health plan before Congress adjourns.

    Looks like Jon Stewart's one hour special on this issue finally shamed enough GOP senators to stop obstructing this bill and do the right thing.

    Sen. Kyl (R-AZ) has been by far the worst. His excuses add new meaning to the word lame.
    Politics is like driving. To go forward select "D", to go backward select "R."

    Jon Stewart sounds like one of the same guy's like Charlie Sheen and Michael Moore that said ....It was our government who was responsible for attacking the USA on 9-11. Don't you dare disrespect my Brothers and Sisters by making it political. You want to make it political what part of the USS Cole attack and the WTC bombing and lets not forget ...Binny ****head laiden declare war on our country!! It Must have been a republican president at the time singing kumbya so now blame it on the tea bagers. I could give a rat f*ck about what anyone thinks I have brothers in afgan taking care of business right now and I lost friends on 9-11 so keep on spewing the BS..

    John Stewart has been pretty consistently backing the firefighters and slamming the Republicans during this. He is as close to a friend in the media as the FDNY guys have in my opinion.
