The House approved a $10 billion measure that would replenish a 9/11 fund for ailing first responders, and extend assistance for the rest of their lives. The bill's path is uncertain in the Senate.

    Republicans will use 9/11 as a prop to justify keeping around DHS and ICE but donโ€™t give a damn about the people suffering and dying because of it.

    Letโ€™s see how the Mitch McConnell led senate takes care of our 9/11 first responders?

    It's a shame so many have to pour their guts out in hearings to get our government to do the right thing. Pitiful really.

    Rake Mitch McConnell over the coals if he stalls this bill.

    This is just the sort of legislation that the Grim Reaper, Mitch McConnell, will never bring to the floor for a vote. Hopefully the rest of his party will do something about that. These people came to the aid of others and suffer because of it. Help them!

    It is shameful that Lyin'Mitch @senatemajldr would rather protect the coward with bone spurs and give tax breaks to the rich rather than doing what is right for the heroes of 9/11.
