John Stewart holding Congress accountable for not providing healthcare to 9/11 First Responders



behind me a filled room of 911 first responders and in front of me a nearly empty Congress sick and dying they brought themselves down here to speak and no one it's shameful it's an embarrassment to the country and it is a stain on this institution and you should be ashamed of yourselves for those that aren't here but you won't be because accountability doesn't appear to be something that occurs in this chamber we don't want to be here Lu doesn't want to be here none of these people want to be here but they are and they're not here for themselves they're here to continue fighting for what's right Lu's gonna go back for a 69th Kimo the great ray Pfeiffer would come down here his body riddled with cancer and pain where he couldn't walk and the disrespect shown to him and to the other lobbyists on this bill is utterly unacceptable they responded in five seconds they did their jobs with courage grace tenacity humility 18 years later to yours and these men and women and their response to it is what brought our country back it's what gave a reeling nation a solid foundation to stand back upon to remind us of why this country is great of why this country is worth fighting for and you are ignoring them and you can end it tomorrow why this bill isn't unanimous consent and a standalone issue is beyond my comprehension and I have yet to hear a reasonable explanation for why
