Jon Stewart is back in the spotlight after heading to Capitol Hill, and man did he let Congress have it!
In true Stewart spirit, he blasted Congress for failing to renew the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, which provides much needed medical care for the brave men and women who sacrificed everything during the worst terrorist attack in American history. Stewart referred to Cogress’ failure pass this as “stupid and embarrassing.”
I think it’s safe to say that many would agree with Stewart’s comments:
This is insane. We have a bunch of first responders outside freezing their asses off. Our country’s last responders, our country’s worst responders, are inside nice and comfy and cozy, and probably having soup…The man has literally sponsored and touted the exact same bill for energy workers. I honestly just wish I could understand the rationale. That bill cost twice as much what they’re asking for these guys. How in good conscience can you deny them the very thing that you have proudly brought to the people of your state? Please, personally ask him that.feels the brave men and women who worked ground zero don’t?
