This government spends billions of our taxpayer money on wars and weapons, Trump's family, but we can't have normal medical coverage. You end up in emergency and they bill you with $1,5K to pay. WTF. The most shittiest corrupt medical mafia system.

I wish I could like this video a thousand times, and then a thousands times more. It shocks me in the worst way that this mans words could garner nearly 3,000 dislikes. How can anyone, republican or democrat, liberal or conservative, dislike this mans message?! I myself do not make much financially, but I would willingly give up 2, 5 even 10 percent of my net income to help these men and women. I love this country and firmly believe a million others would do the same in a heartbeat. So why can't we take care of these heroes?.... Set the bullshit aside and do what is right for Gods sake!

“Congress passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act in 2010, over opposition from some Republicans who balked at its $7 billion price tag. The act was reauthorized in 2015 for 90 years. But a portion of the law — the Victim Compensation Fund — was only funded for five years, through the end of 2020. The fund aimed to provide necessary financial support for the thousands who suffered serious medical issues, including a spate of cancer diagnoses, after the 2001 attacks.” “I can't help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is ... a filled room of 9/11 first responders and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress. Sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak to no one ... shameful," said Stewart at the outset of his remarks. A little over half of the 14-member subcommittee members were present, mostly Democrats.”

Bullshit shtick of a fake man acting an even faker act. There is evidence that suggests liberals and republicans hand elections to each other. Which suggests an stage and comedian show clowns Cooperate; they never give it away it ends wars at least instantly lives lost every minute they keep quiet. Jon Stewart has blood on his hands and more power than this fake TV clowning he does. https://youtu.be/xNTrp90Y7EQ

It’s funny how Jon Stewart makes a living off of making political jokes, yet deeply loves America and everything she stands for with all his heart. I wonder if the jokes he makes secretly hurts him, like laughing the pain away and find happiness by joking about a serious situation. He’s like the clown pagliacci

One of the comments i read said they should have free health care for the rest of their lives and that this shouldn't even be up for discussion. I couldn't have said it better myself and it makes me sick to know these men and women literally gave their lives and much more to be denied such basic human rights. This is absolutely pathetic, appalling and shameful.

Trillions of dollars in tax cuts for the rich? Sure, we can afford that!! Continued assistance and funding for the health care and other necessities of the 9/11 First Responders (who are still alive today) and their families? Nope, 5 years was enough, and we don't think we can afford that anymore!! *_Until Congress was publicly shamed for not doing the right thing._* *_Screw you, Congress_* for actually _needing_ to be publicly shamed into finally doing the right thing. _Shame on you_ for deeming it affordable to give trillions of dollars in tax cuts to the people and corporations lining your pockets, while trying to deem it too expensive to continue bearing the costs of assisting these brave people and their families for longer than the initial 5 year period. A time period for which they had to fight you for tooth and nail, which should not have had to be fought for to begin with, let alone _twice_ Your assistance should have been granted with the same sense of duty and grace with which these people put their lives, safety, well-being, and livelihoods on the line when _their_ assistance was so desperately needed.

I've found myself returning to this video every day since it's posting. I remember Jon speaking about this issue a few years ago, and of course I believed it was the right thing to do. But I then I moved on thinking this would be resolved, as I bet most of us did. Like Jon, we probably thought this should be a unanimous decision. As this was assistance for 9/11 first responders, you would believe no one would be against it, not that no one would show up to hear their pleas. By now it should be no surprise that Congress is willing to use people's suffering as leverage to get something else passed, and they are willing to take as long as necessary to get what they want. Even if it means waiting until their party has an advantage in the House or Senate. And why would they care? They're making their money one way or another. Its one of the few jobs out there where you can still be paid regardless of whether you work or not. Outside of a government shutdown (which should never fucking happen), you are watching another example of our government failing it's citizens. For this reason I keep coming back to this video; it feels good to listen to Jon shame them. It shouldn't even be this way, but unfortunately it is.

I find it very sickening because of the Socialist Democrats that now the COST THIS YEAR ALONE FOR ILLEGALS IS OVER 122 BILLION and rising. Just the cost today is around 700 million PER DAY. Look it up on One America News clock of illegals costing us. Anybody that votes for Democrats and wants to waste more money on illegals should be impeached and thrown out of office. With this money that could be going to these firefighters, veterans, schools and the homeless, and yet it’s wasted on people that are not even supposed to be in this country. That is very repulsive to me and anti-American. Enough is enough.

My impressions of New York and their First Responders was that New York loved their First Responders they the caring about them kind of like other people would Sports athletes and so when over the almost 20 years I've been hearing growing up how these responders that were so respected and help great pride in often now fight everyday for their life instead of focusing on fighting for the lives of the rest of New York who claimed to love them. This is not how love or respect shown and truly honestly my I have no desire to ever go to New York no matter how many celebrities or Sports athletes or actors promoted I just watched the news and I see the truth Within they may call it the Big Apple but it seems to look like a rotten apple.
