    Jon Stewart to Republicans: You Can't Exploit 9/11 Anymore

    Video after the jump. Jon Stewart tears apart the GOP for putting partisanship over the 9/11 first responders. On a related note, Mike Enzi should be ashamed of himself.

    A.) Why do the Republicans need to alter it? So they could of done more of this?

    Whatever happened to just voting on a bill?

    B.) That article and vote was from July. This is the more recent where the GOP voted no, again.

    King is full of bologna. What they wouldn't allow is for the GOP to attach a rider which would have required us to check the immigration status of people who indisputably worked in the pit.

    He can call it whatever he wants... but the reality is the GOP didn't want to give NY that kind of money.... same as when Trent Lott was running the show and they gave Idaho equal money to 'fight terrorism' as they gave us.

    The GOP has no right to campaign on 9.11 anymore. I agree with Stewart.

    Not only is that a deflection from the point of the thread but a non-issue. Do I think all Republicans or Conservatives hate 9/11 responders? No. Do I think the Republicans in the Senate are playing political games by voting no on the 9/11 responders bill? Yes.

    However, my personal opinion has nothing to do with this thread.

    9/11 responders bill defeated by Senate GOP filibuster - CNN.com

    All on them.

    Here, let me once again make that bigger so it can be seen better:

    Again, I would criticize the Democrats just as much as if they blocked this bill. Do you think the $7.4 billion price tag is "too high"? Yes or no? Instead of deflecting away from the issue or trying to make this about me, why not discuss the issue at hand?

    Why aren't the Dems just sending this up for a straight majority vote? Apparently it would pass as a simple majority vote...

    Why play games and require a super majority vote?


    Oh, I see... Democratic games = acceptable...


    Never mind...

    because they would rather make people look bad then take care of 9/11 responders.
