And of course the Republicans were opposed to this because, you know, they’re all about 9/11 Heroes when they need material for campaign commercials.
The House was finally able to overcome Republican obstruction yesterday and passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, 268-160. Three Blue Dogs (Berry, Bright, and Cooper) joined 157 Republicans in voting against the heroes who were the first responders in the World Trade Center attacks.
Ultimately, it’s great news. But will the Senate actually vote on this or will it join the hundreds of other pieces of legislation that the House has passed but which the Senate has ignored?
