Lawmakers Who Hailed 9/11 Heroes Still Shun Bill To Help Them

The Republican lawmakers are always first to yell their support for our troops, our first responders, our policemen and our firefighters; however whenever it comes down to funding and taking care of them, they are the first to find ways to not do the right thing. I was so happy to see one of our finest young senators back once again on Jon Stewart’s show, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, speaking about her challenge in getting the Zabroga Act to be funded once again before it expires this upcoming end of September, she also spoke of trying to make it into a fund in perpetuity, Senator Gillibrand is exactly the type of Senator that we need, we have others like her such as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Keith Ellison, Al Franken and Sherrod Brown, but we need so many more if we want to be able to continue to do the right thing by our people, all of them in our society. The makeup of our congress is on us, we are the ones who vote them in, we should hold ourselves up to a higher standard and when we see senators like Senator Gillibrand, we should make it a point to try to get more candidates like her into public office because they will choose to do the right thing.
