Heroes denied money

9/11 Health Care Bill

In another brilliant display of their work the government shoots down another quality bill. A $7.4 billion bill that provides health care for first responders at the World Trade Centers on September 11th, 2001.

And mostly Republicans, who love their country, soldiers, and heroes more than anything, decided to shoot down this bill because the bill provided health care to 9/11 responders who are illegal immigrants. So they can get injured, or die to save people and be heroes to this country but they can’t get money for it? The other part they were against was how the bill was going to get paid for. Taxing US operations of foreign-firms, aka big companies hiding money safely away from taxes to make a bigger profit. This is apparently more important than the heroes of 9/11.
