    So Republicans in the U.S. Senate have blocked, for now, legislation that would have provided medical care to rescue workers and New York City residents who became ill following their exposure to toxins produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Reportedly, their objections centered around how to pay for the $7.4 billion measure.

    It begs the questions: How many of America's wealthiest Americans showed up at Ground Zero on 9-11 and the days and weeks following to help pull those who survived and those who did not from the rubble, at risk to their own health? How many of these politicians did? Why does the deficit matter in the one case but not the other?

    You don't understand economics. If you give tax cuts to billionaires the money will trickle down as aid to 9-11 heros

    You just have to be patient

    YOU want to deprive America's hard working heroes needed medical needs and at the same time give millionaires uneeded tax cuts.

    And you have the nerve to call me a moron? :cuckoo:

    Maybe if anyone was getting their taxes cut, you'd have a point. But current tax legislation is simply to keep taxes are they are rather than raising them.

    Do you understand the difference between a cut and maintaining the status quo?

    Also, you telling me none of these people have health insurance already? I mean wasnt the point of Obamacare to force all of us to have health insurance? How on earth can you possibly claim they don't have care? Are you telling us that Obama and the Democrats lied to us despite forcing a bill we didnt want on us?

    Oh and we dont have to call you a moron. I think your posts speak for themselves.

    Wow. There's so much wrong with what you wrote it's hard to know where to begin.

    First of all, the current legislation is to whether or not to extend the tax cuts that were supposed to expire. Only a dumbass or a wingnut would not know that.

    Second of all, Obama's health care plan won't come into full effect until 2014 and "40 percent of the World Trade Center workers being monitored by a Mount Sinai Hospital study lack health insurance."

    Oh and we all do have to call you a dumbass since your silly posts point to it every day.

    Class dismissed.
