    So the house passed a bill approving funding for healthcare for the emergency workers who have long term problems resulting from the toxins and smoke they inhaled in the line of duty on 9/11. Guess who voted for it—certainly not the rah-rah the-mosque-is-an-insult-to-the-victims 'patriot' conservatives.

    It was 268 to 160, with only 17 republicans for it. I saw people in the midwest last week wearing 'never forget FDNY 9/11' tshirts. What does it say about how well we're remembering when the right refuses to come up with the money to cover the ongoing healthcare of these extremely brave firemen, police and paramedics?

    Yeah, they're all for New Yorker's 'best interests' when it comes to some good old Muslim bashing, but helping the heroes of 9/11? Make those lazy good for nothings earn health care the American way: going bankrupt paying for it. They probably all belonged to socialist unions anyway. Actually, they were probably running into the trade centers to try and save the terrorists and give them Kenyan birth certificates so they could run for president in 2016. Yeah, that's it! 9/11 responders are actually working with Obama Bin Laden. I mean Osama. Whoops! :rolleyes:

    The bill will never see the light of day in the Senate. That's the building one of those planes should have hit.
