The Zadroga Bill would help 60,000 people, first responders and others, sickened by exposure to toxic dust and debris at Ground Zero. The measure needed a two-thirds vote for approval, instead of a simple majority, but as CBS 2′s Magee Hickey reports, the vote fell short.
Democratic leaders wanted to prevent Republicans from tacking on amendments. Only 12 Republicans voted "yes."
One of the them, Peter King (R- L.I.), called the Democrats' procedural move a cruel hoax and a charade. "This bill should be more important than a campaign talking point. You could have passed it any time during the past three and a half years, but you want political cover," he said.
