Having had to fight for medical care for the mounting illnessess they face, thousands of 9/11 first responders are about to endure a final, GOP-sponsored insult - their names being run through a FBI terrorism watch list before they can get any compensation. Unreal.

“Is the idea that a terrorist stayed to help clean up? And then stayed all these years to try and get benefits? In all the things I’ve seen out of Washington, this probably takes the cake.”

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
