White House opposes funding health bill for 9/11 victims?

The state’s two senators and 14 House members met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just hours before President Obama implored in his speech to the nation for Congress to come together and deliver a government that delivers on its promises to the American people.
So the legislators were floored to learn the Democratic administration does not want to deliver for the tens of thousands of people who sacrificed after 9/11, and the untold numbers now getting sick.
“I was stunned — and very disappointed,” said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who like most of the other legislators had expected more of a discussion on how to more forward…
“She made it clear that the administration does not support any kind of funding mechanism that goes into the bill,”

  • I have to agree with IamPatSajak (funny SN - btw). I would want to know what pork was attached to the bill before giving an opinion on it.
