    Shocking! Those heros must be Union workers.


    On Fox & Friends this morning, Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. launched into a passionate attack on “Congress” and “the US Senate” for killing health benefits for 9/11 rescue workers. “Last week, Congress told them they could drop dead,” Johnson said, to the mournful chords of September Song. “Shame, embarrassment, outrage, anger—all the proper reactions to the conduct of our senators who…have turned their back on American heroes.” Worse, they’ve been betrayed by the same “politicians who couldn’t take enough pictures with them.” Right on, Peter.

    But in his three-and-a-half-minute rant, Johnson didn’t once mention who in Congress could be such heartless hypocrites. The 57-to-42 vote was three short needed to break a filibuster, as every Republican voted against even bringing the bill to a vote, and every Democrat but one voted in favor.

    Yeah, like you want Freedom and fear from terrorists, but you want other people to go die for it.

    You want corporation profits, but you want other people to work to earn them for you.

    We know you lazy shiftless bums quite well, cons everyone of you.........

    What else was tacked onto this bill that made it so unappetizing for Republicans? You can't just look at one part of a bill anymore, the democRATS are trying to push their agenda by cramming all kinds of unrelated crap into everything they vote on during their lame dick session

    Those who serve their country are entitled to the help of their fellow citizens, Revere.

    The Republican vote is absolutely shameful.
