Republicans Block U.S. Health Aid for 9/11 Workers
[Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid] attacked Republican senators for what he described as misplaced priorities.
“Republicans denied adequate health care to the heroes who developed illnesses from rushing into burning buildings on 9/11,” he said. “Yet they will stop at nothing to give tax breaks to millionaires and C.E.O.’s, even though they will explode our deficit and fail to create jobs. That tells you everything you need to know about their priorities.”
Beyond the obvious tragedy, does this mean we have to start hearing about the Park 51 mosque again?
