Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the "9/11 bill" is being used to gain political advantage by some members of both parties. Firefighters, Police Officers, EMT's and others who worked on the pile are being used as pawns. If those who responded to 9/11 and those who participated in the cleanup continue to suffer, the Washington politicians appear to just consider that unfortunate collateral damage in their own political war. Incredible.
If you feel strongly about what we are writing, don't tell us. HOWEVER, every member of Congress should hear how you feel and, as far as we are concerned, they must put politics aside, clean up and PASS the "Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act". Get rid of all the added unrelated political crap that's in there and pass it with 100% of the bill focused on helping those who are sick from simply trying to help at Ground Zero. Ya thinking they can't do that, and do it quickly? BS. If they want to, they can. If they want to.
