No Shame

This is unbelievable. First, Senate Republicans rejected health benefits for 9/11 first responders – and lacked the balls to even show up during debate to "defend" their position. Then, after a group of rescue workers travelled to D.C. from New York, Oklahoma Sen. Tom "Dr. No" Coburn refused to meet with them, and threw them out of the office. As they left, they sang "God Bless America." Man, you gotta hope there's some justice in the universe.
