    You need to follow through more on things Truth Matters Not. ;)

    These guys are already covered and insured, which is besides the fact. Your source sucks.


    WASHINGTON - Insult turned to hope and flattery Thursday for first responders who came to the Senate to push for the 9/11 health bill - and found cops waiting.

    It began when the office of Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins sicced Capitol police officers on the former firefighters, construction workers and cops on their way in.

    It ended hours later with reconciliation when the first responders met with Collins' top aides - and left believing they have a deal to pass the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.

    "At first we were insulted, but in hindsight, we're flattered," 9/11 advocate John Feal said. "We can look past this because we believe Sen. Collins will support our bill.

    "Both her and [Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa] Murkowski's office said to us, 'If your bill goes on the floor next week, it will pass,' " Feal said.
    That was good enough for him.

    A spokesman for Collins confirmed a staffer alerted police after they got a letter from Feal on Wednesday, warning that responders planned to sit in at Senate offices until they got answers or police hauled them away.

    The truth doesn't not matter to truthmatters. She's a liar.

    I don't know what this is all about anyway. Does someone want to tell me that the 9-11 responders have done without health care for these nine long years? and then secondly why aren't they covered in obamacare? Inquiring minds want to know.

    They have a great Benefit package, and great Health Care Insurance options through the job. 20 year retirement too.

    Collins is a Republican in the same manner that Bradley Manning is an Army soldier.

    There may be real issues there, it's worth the consideration of hearing. I would think Insurance Riders could be negotiated for legitimate causes.
