Im talking about the 9/11 first responders – the police officers, firefighters, and volunteers who rushed to the rubble to look for survivors – and spent days, weeks, and months at ground zero recovering bodies and cleaning up the rubble. Those men and women are today dealing with sickness – unaware at the time that the air they were breathing at Ground Zero was toxic. Cancers, heart problems, and respiratory problems continue to plague the first responders today – and tragically – have led to the deaths of as many as 1000 of these brave Americans. A year and a half ago – Congress passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act – to give sick first responders the healthcare they deserve for serving their nation. It was a hard fought victory just to get the bill passed – as Republicans in the House opposed it – with even Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan voting against it. But passing it was just the first battle – the next battle for responders was proving that the cancers and illnesses they suffer from were indeed caused by the toxic rubble at ground zero. Now – there might be some good news. On Monday – the National Institute for Occupational Safety announced

Feds to cover 9/11 cancers under Zadroga Act

The federal rule change will allow sick rescue and recovery workers to receive compensation for their cancer treatment as well as pain and suffering for the first time in the 11 years since the attacks. Signed into law in January by President Obama, the Zadroga Act recognized the need to provide healthcare and compensation for first responders who responded to the 9/11 tragedy and worked down there for months, progressively getting so sick that they had to leave their jobs and as a result, were in dire financial straights, says attorney Troy Rosasco of Turley, Redmond, Rosasco and Rosasco, LLP in New York. Congress set up a special fund of .5 billion, with .5 billion towards medical care and .8 billion towards compensating those who lost earnings and for pain and suffering. Up until now, the prior law covered a myriad of respiratory and digestive disorders and within the law, there was a provision that said they d continue to study other health programs and see if cancer could be added, says Rosasco. Following a group of New York firefighters, the research showed they had a 19% higher rate of cancer and as a result of this study, they decided to add almost 50 different cancers to the eligibility list of the covered conditions, Rosasco says. He notes that it is very hard to tell at this early point how many people this will affect, as people are just now calling as a result of this announcement. The focus of the victim s compensation fund is to look at which specific

Question by The Equalist: Conservatives: How upset were you when the bill passed to provide healthcare to sick 9/11 First Responders?
You know, the 9/11 Heroes that got sick from the toxic fumes and lost their job and healthcare coverage as a result. The healthcare bill that Republicans tried to block.

How angry did it make you when you found out these heroes would be covered with healthcare to assist in their ailments – many which are life-threatening?

But at least you can remain happy about the fact that millionaires & billionaires will be given more money for at least another 2 years. So you have something to be happy about.
