Time to get to work!

You might be shocked to learn that the health care bill that assists the first responders from 9/11 needs renewal. Some politicians are good at using words to praise the rescuers from 9/11, but that is all they've done. More than words are needed.


Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show this Monday evening to continue his fight to get Congress to do the right thing for our 9-11 first responders: Jon Stewart's Back On 'The Daily Show' Tonight, And He Is Not Happy:
    Jon Stewart isn't letting up in his effort to convince lawmakers to pass a new 9/11 bill after his   visit to Congress last week -- the former host of "The Daily Show" returns to the broadcast Monday night to put an exclamation point on his trip to D.C. 

    Stewart and a group of 9/11 responders on Thursday toured the halls of the Capitol and visited the offices of senators in hopes of spurring them to pass a permanent extension of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which began expiring in September.....

Republicans Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell need to get this legislation passed NOW!

Attention, Ohio voters!  Sen. Rob Portman had avoided signing to support the Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act----- until Jon Stewart cornered him (see HuffingtonPost).
