It's A Shame! A Shame!

It's A Shame! A Shame!

The House has (unbelievably) rejected
a bill providing $7.4 billion in medical treatment and compensation to
first responders sickened in the 9/11 attacks, with Republicans (ditto)
calling it a "slush fund" and "entitlement program" for deadbeats. The
indecency of it all prompted a furious Rep. Anthony Weiner to lose it on the floor, entirely justifiably. 

New
York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the vote an "outrage" to those
workers "whose health has fallen apart because they did what America
wanted
them to do."
