And AOC wants to give a raise to herself and all her colleagues. Maybe we should give them all a pay cut instead and put it into the 9/11 first responders fund. We will never forget.

Congress has never failed to approve their own pay raise...

Da Boys Oh wow you clicked on the exact same thing everybody else who uses this app clicked on! You’re so intuitive and informed! Did you read the article from the Hill that says AOC is only supporting cost-of-living increases for members of Congress because it aids in the fight for campaign finance reform? No? You just clicked on the annoying picture of young, bitch-faced, AOC with over half right wing articles underneath the title and called yourself “informed”? How telling. Group think on full display.

Regardless of moronic foreign politics which caused 9/11 to happen, the debate and fire surrounding it, and the various Butterfly Effects from it, responders constitute an unrelated and separate category of unaligned people whose only interest and responsibility is to save lives with no regard for what those souls look like or how they think, and by using means where the only blood being shed to save lives is their own and nobody else's. To politicize them and play games with the lives and deaths of these people and their families, especially in the event where they have proven themselves and their mettle by not cowering, is a travesty of such proportions that i'd be inclined to publicly accuse the figures playing these games of high treason against the Demos.

On on board with Jon Stewart here. It is shameful that these men and women shouldn't be cared for. But isn't this the same with war veterans?

Congress loves to send people to war. but hates to help them when they get back.

To the establishment, those people are just pawns to aid them in winning reelection. That combined with our broken voting system made worse by Citizens United, and you have a government where the majority of those in power are slaves to corporate power made possible by the massive amounts of "bribes" given to those elected officials as a form of campaign donations. Republicans go all gung-ho when they demand you to "support the troops" which amounts to not criticizing our infinite warfare, but when these troops come home physically and mentally traumatized by the wars they fought in, they will oppose any and all legislation that attempt to treat their physical and mental wounds. I guess the real problem is that any attempt to address the problems are stopped by Republicans calling you anti-patriotic for even bringing up this issue. Looks like the Republicans took a page from a Communist Party playbook on how to smear dissenting opinions.

Wow... The politicization has begun, and surprise, surprise it came from a dummycrat.

I don't agree with Jon Stewart in much, but he got it out of the park this time. It just goes to show that no matter which side of the isle, seasoned vet or first time congressman (or woman, like AOC), they all only. truly care about themselves. Too bad they will never legislate restrictions to their abuse of power.

The Selfishness must end I agree.

“Got it out of the park”? Either you’re not American or you’ve never played/watched baseball. It’s “knocked” it out of the park. And the “aisle” you are looking for is spelled with an “A”. Isle is another word for an island or peninsula. Can’t have you coasting through life not knowing these very basic things. You’re welcome. Tell me do you not agree with Jon Stewart on much because you are a Trump supporter and Jon isn’t? Your grammar, spelling, and phrasing are atrocious. More proof that the right wing preys on the uneducated. Sorry not sorry.

And the award for the poster with the most partisan vitriol goes to... "blah blah blah, Orange Man bad"! Let's give her a round of applause!

Thank you for speaking the truth Jon Stewart! At least you were a night show host with something I haven't seen in others. A Heart and a drive to do what's undoubtedly right!

The usual gang of idiots try to deflect the issue towards AOC or some other place and ignore the point of the articles. The media should be publicizing the names of the committee members that didn't show up. There should be weekly reminders of congress' lack of support for these heroes. Further more every member of congress that doesn't respect the first responders that need our help should be banned from mentioning them.

227 Democrats cosponsor HR1327 with only 79 Republicans in the House. Ilhan Omar is a cosponsor. And so is AOC. Facts don’t care about your feelings. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1327/cosponsors

If you have not listened to what he said, you definitely should. It was quite moving.

most of the panel's 14 members failed to show up. "Sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak and no one," Stewart said. "Shameful, it's an embarrassment to the country and a stain on this institution. You should be ashamed of yourselves for those who aren't here but you won't be because accountability doesn't appear to be something that occurs in this chamber." Advertisement Becoming tearful, he continued: "Where are they? It would be one thing if their callous indifference and rank hypocrisy was benign, but it's not. "Their indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity, time, the one thing they're running out of." https://news.sky.com/story/tearful-jon-stewart-finds-congress-empty-during-911-victims-fund-talks-11740228

I miss Jon Stewart on the Daily Show so much. He was not afraid to poke fun at both sides of the political spectrum.

These people have the gall to call for a pay raise as they leave our heroes to suffer. This shit boils my blood.

I have to say, I admire Jon Stewart a lot for this. No matter what happens, he doesn't give up until he has a commitment from the government to help the 9/11 first responders. What a hero.

Maybe for 10 years but never 70 years. It is a ridiculous idea that because this happened they should be cuddled by the taxpayer's money. People are still people and need to move on.

If I’m reading this right the bill he’s talking about is expected to pass (overwhelmingly). He’s angry that not a lot of senators showed up to the hearing (so he’s looking at a bunch of empty seats). I understand his anger though and I would very much like to know what these missing senators were up too that required them to be taken away from DOING THEIR JOB?!

Notice how the MSM glorifies Al Qaeda linked white helmets and syrian jihadist Al-Sarout who praised 9/11 and ISIS.
