This bears repeating on the 9/11 Decennial:

Senate GOP blocks 9/11 first responders health plan bill - The Hill's Healthwatch
A vote to quash the filibuster failed by a vote of 57 to 42, three votes short of the necessary threshold. As a result, the proposal is unlikely to pass this year.

The bill would provide funding for a health program to treat first responders, construction and cleanup workers and residents who inhaled toxic particles after the collapse of the World Trade Center towers.

The $7.4 billion cost of the legislation over 10 years is paid for by a provision that would prevent foreign multinational corporations from using tax havens to avoid taxes on U.S. income.
Of course the Repubs wouldn't support it, it would force big biz to sacrifice/contribute. :clap2:


This pisses me off to no end!!! (see my siggie) :mad: What say you?

Unions? Again?

Obama already gave them a Trillion dollars. I guess that was not enough.
