So nine years on and Republicans are still voting NO on Rep. Maloney's bill to fund healthcare to the first responders to the scenes of the September 11, 2001 mass terrorist murders, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act
"House Republicans late Thursday were able to corral enough votes to defeat a bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to those sickened by toxins resulting from the 9/11 attack"
As we approach midterm election, very good to know.

Did you notice that when you ladies brought forth the really bad parts of the bill, the PBO supporters scurried on to other questions where they could start insulting people again? They always yield the field as soon as they are giving the facts.

Exactly, quinnmae! They call the republicans the "party of no"; however, the dems are the "party of - sure, anything you want" without restraint and then blame the repubs when everything goes wrong. The attempt to silence voices of the conservatives in this country is so blatant. To write a bill that will not consider the concerns of the other side of the isle and the citizens they represent is despicable. But, we are the bad guys. Who will they blame when every paycheck is the governments and you are given a stipend?
