    And leading up to it did you defend those Republicans at the expense of the victims? Look how long it took, from your own headline... Bill for 9/11 first responders finally passes Congress.
    You guys were late to the game and it costed lives. As usual.

    I see that it took a Republican majority to get it done. Where were you Democrats when you had control?
