Jon Stewart joins lawmakers in push for 9/11 victims funding

A bipartisan group of lawmakers, joined by comedian Jon Stewart, are pushing to fully compensate first responders and survivors suffering from illnesses linked to the 9/11 attacks. Lawmakers, on Monday, introduced a legislation that would guarantee that first responders sickened by the attacks, as well as survivors, receive their full benefit from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

Return To Forever. He's not the only outsider getting things done in Washington. Apparently in order to accomplish anything you have to be a non politician outsider looking in and shaking the tree. Anybody else notice the pattern?
