      Every single American should be constantly shaming politicians. Never ending shame. And don’t pick a party either. All of them are corrupt fucks.

        “Your indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity; time.” This made me bawl.

          John Stuart is amazing for this, using his voice to help these people. He doesn't have to nor does he get paid for this. Congress is a disgrace. Meanwhile they keep giving themselves raises. Sad. This brought tears to my eyes because this is truly sad

                    I sincerely thank Luis Alvarez and all 9/11 first responders for the incomparable sacrifices that they made to save innocent lives. As for the members of Congress that have idiotically remained silent and indifferent to the suffering of these extremely brave men and women, shame on you.

                          “Never forget the heroes of 9/11.” “Well here they are! And WHERE ARE THEY?!”

                          Oh my god. Find who voted against this and make sure they never work in government again. This is utterly disgraceful.

                                    Beyond appalling. European countries have adopted our American values yet WE fail to uphold them. It’s embarrassing that first responders and veterans get treated like absolute garbage. That ignorant self absorbed POS and the parasites holding the highest levels of office use their power and greed to help only those within their fraternity. And take credit for accomplishing other people’s successes.

                                        You do realize that there are plenty of millionaires in the Democratic Party .. one for example is house speaker Nancy Pelosi and another is the infamous Maxine waters and on and on ... watching listen to something beside the lunatics on msnbc and cnn and you might open up your mind !

                                          The Daily Show Episode December 16, 2010, where Jon Stewart changed format to interview first responders. Probably one of the greatest moments in tv. And Im not even American!

                                              Jon Stewart should run for a political office; he has the tenacity, and the courage, and the ability to speak forthright, to be a true leader.

                                                    Mr. Stewart, I know it's the last thing you want but PLEASE RUN for the House or Senate. I spent 22 years inside government. I've seen this kind of gross injustice and corruption over and over. I will quit my job and work on your campaign full time. The men and women behind you need you - the country needs you. We need you because you give a damn. If the men and women occupying the halls of Congress showed 1/4 the civic duty and patriotism as those men and women who ran towards danger, the nation would be a million times better off. Please run.

We can never forget the heroic efforts and sacrifices of the first responders of 9/11. Their efforts probably saved thousands of American lives that morning and we must do all that we can to stand behind them 100% and provide them the funding the need and deserve. Thank you Jon Stewart for having the backs of these American heroes!

THE DEMONcrats will not help at all and if elected in house, senate or god forbid the president in 2020 your 911 first responders will not be at the bottom of the pile....THEY WON'T EVEN BE IN THE PILE. These ANIMALS called themselves democrats but really are socialists do not CARE whatsoever about any first responders from street cops to the military. They care only first for themselves and those like illegals that will vote for them now AND IN THE FUTURE BY GIVING FREE STUFF TO LAZY PEOPLE. Jon, you have stood up for these people, stand up for the rest of america and use your influence to convince other peers that the ONLY person that has shown constantly to protect first responders, military etal has been and will ALWAYS BE THE CURRENT AND 2020 PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. THE DEMONS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY WILL BURN IN HELL AND OBVIOUSLY LIKE IT SINCE THEY ARE THE WORK OF THE DEVIL.

They don't give a fuck about average Americans , they have their own agendas. I think life in America is too fast and not everybody has the time to search and look into details and seek truth, majority of the people will trust the news shown on tv. so anything the Tv says , they will believe it. Poor and average citizens will suffer the most whether its happening in developed countries or developing countries, because of corrupt leaders.

It’s only logical to conclude that the first responders are victims of war. Their care should be included in the over inflated defense budget. Shit is sad...

It's shameful that we even have to debate this in Congress. 9/11 responders shouldn't have to worry about wether they'll have enough food on the table or money in the bank, or medicine for health issues, it should be automatically provided without question
