Question by : what do u think about the 9/11 health care responders bill? Also why do most republicans opposed it?
What do u think about it? What are the good arguments between pros and cons of 9/11 health care bill? I’m not for both parties though but right-wing do seem to opposed it more than Democrats so why they opposed it?

How does the 9/11 health care bill affect the economy along with the war in Afghanistan/Iraq? So which one worse: spending on military aid or the economy? which one spends more?

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.

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.

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.
