Obama To Ill 9/11 Rescue And Clean Up Workers: Screw You
Wow… Just WOW
Well, Obama may well have found a way to unite Democrats and Republicans after all.
The Obama administration stunned New York’s delegation Thursday, dropping the bombshell news that it does not support funding the 9/11 health bill.
The state’s two senators and 14 House members met with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just hours before President Obama implored in his speech to the nation for Congress to come together and deliver a government that delivers on its promises to the American people.
So the legislators were floored to learn the Democratic administration does not want to deliver for the tens of thousands of people who sacrificed after 9/11, and the untold numbers now getting sick.
"I was stunned — and very disappointed," said Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who like most of the other legislators had expected more of a discussion on how to more forward.
…"She made it clear that the administration does not support any kind of funding mechanism that goes into the bill," said Bronx Rep. Eliot Engel. "I think it’s fiscal restraint… but you know what? They find money for everything else, they need to find money for this," Engel said.
And how much do these greedy bastards want anyway? 11 Billion dollars! Not all at once mind you but spread out over the next 30 years. $366 million, give or take, a year.
For the people who tried to rescue survivors of the attack and then cleaned out the site Obama says…no. Money to defend terrorists in court? Sure, he’s all for that.
