Jon Stewart: Kit Bond, Senate GOP go ‘bros before heroes’ by blocking 9/11 responders bill
U.S. Sen. Kit Bond and his Senate Republican buddies have vowed to block all legislation until the Bush-era tax cuts get approved. Count a victory of all of the money bags out there. All legislation is so encompassing that it even includes blocking the 9/11 first responders bill — which would have provided medical aid to sick and dying first responders and workers.
For folks who sure loved to use 9/11 to get elected, this seems like an odd stand, and even surprised The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart, which has to be an amazing feat at this point since he’s seen some shit.
