Mirrored: John Devlin, 9/11 first responder Kirk Arsenault, 9/11 first responder join Thom Hartmann. Now on to those who continue to struggle 11 years after the attacks. 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

500 BILLION Euro rescue FUND gets GREEN LIGHT Eurozone's merry-go-round of BAILOUTS can continue!

Germany’s Constitutional Court has ruled that the €500-billion bailout is legal under German law. The verdict comes as Greece’s coalition government hesitates on the further austerity cuts required by its creditors. “Today, Germany is once again sending a strong signal to Europe and beyond. Germany is assuming with determination its responsibility as the biggest economy and as a reliable partner in Europe,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Parliament hours after the ruling. “This is a good day for Germany and this is a good day for Europe,” she said. The verdict ruled that the German government will not be liable for sums over 190 billion euros without approval of the Bundestag, and that both houses of parliament would be informed, “No provision of this treaty may be interpreted in a way that establishes higher payment obligations for the Federal Republic of Germany without the agreement of the German representative,” the court said in a statement. The court has reviewed a petition, signed by some 37000 Germans, against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s plan for a new economic bailout for troubled eurozone countries. The plaintiffs were demanding safeguards for Germany’s economic and political sovereignty. The case was spearheaded by politicians and lawyers from across the political spectrum. The opposition delayed implementation of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and the so-called ‘fiscal pact’ — a binding commitment for European governments not to go further into

debate when republicans offered many counter-offers, amendments, etc. to the bill but they were all turned down by democrats?

http://www.myfoxmemphis.com/dpps/news/dpgonc-obama-open-to-four-republican-health-care-proposals-fc-20100302_6362160

(yes its fox, but its fox reporting nice about Obama, so no silly comments please… if you want there are many sites that show the same statement…)

notice that obama tells the media that he is open to republican proposals. then NONE of the ones he says he is open to, end up in the bill. even according to the white house website…

http://www.whitehouse.gov/health-care-meeting/republican-ideas

ok so lets look at the republican proposals that ended up in the bill… (ignoring for a minute that in a 2700 page bill the list of republican proposals that they allowed in the bill fits on a notecard)

•Advances medical liability reform through grants to States
(http://healthreform.gov/newsroom/factsheet/medicalliability.html) obama proposed this himself last year. its not from a republican proposal…

•Extends dependent coverage to age 26:
(almost all states have already extended to age 26. now they are just making it federal instead of state law)
•Allows automatic enrollment by employers in health insurance
(http://hr.blr.com/HR-news/Benefits-Leave/Healthcare-Insurance/Healthcare-Reform-What-Now/) this was in BOTH proposals. not just republicans. both dems and republicans put this in their bills.
•Mechanisms to improve quality
(http://www.nrlc.org/HealthCareRationing/HELPbill.html) this was in kennedy’s bill. again not republican proposal.

so with all of the “republican proposals” that the democrats allowed in the bill, it turns all of them were already gonna be included. so basically Obama is claiming to be bipartisan when there was NO bipartisanship on EITHER side. so why is it that republicans are being called the “Party of NO” when BOTH are actually the “Parties of NO”?

Is it time to end the poo flingin contest and see if we can do something productive? I see a lot of gloating on here about passing a bill, but the fact of the matter is, because of partisanship by BOTH parties, instead of a bill that works, we ended up with simply a bill that will pass…
