Sexiest 911 Hero, John Feal:
Mr. Coburn should be ashamed of himself. Because I think before he was a senator he was a doctor and he took an oath to help people that are sick. He’s going against his oath as a doctor. He can vote any way he wants as a senator, but as a doctor, he just embarrassed the medical profession.”
Poor, Senator Coburn (R-OK). It’s not easy being a piece of shit.
Even the soulless Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani are calling for this bill to be passed.
But there’s hope:
Republican and Democratic senators have reached a deal on a scaled-down bill to help 9/11 first responders who became sick from having worked in the dust of the World Trade Center.
Congressional aides close to the negotiations tell The Associated Press that the deal calls for providing up to $4 billion in health care and economic aid over five years to first responders and survivors of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorism attacks. (AP)
