Just to really top it off, Senate Republicans blocked a bill to provide health care for 9/11 first responders. We can't afford it, they said.
Republicans complained that the $7.4 billion price tag was too high, while Democrats said the government had an obligation to help the first responders to the deadliest terrorism attack in U.S. history.
The James Zadroga 9/11 Health Bill -- named after a deceased New York Police Department detective who had worked in the toxic plume at ground zero -- seeks to provide free medical coverage for responders and survivors who were exposed to toxins after the attacks.
Nope. Screw these 9/11 first responders who headed into the toxic cloud to save lives. Republicans are going to let them die, because it's a waste of money to help them.
Republicans are too busy demanding we cut the estate tax instead. What's it going to take, folks?
What's it going to take before we tell these bigoted, hateful, smarmy, assholes to go to hell?
