The GOP bill blocked a bill that would have provided medical benefits and compensation for emergency workers who risked it all on September 11, 2001.
That's how our government treats heroes. People who put themselves in harm's way are treated like crap. Bankers get their bonus money.
It's disappointing, but not surprising. The treatment of our returning veterans is another national disgrace. Often their medical care is poor. Soldiers are denied disability benefits. A high percentage of the homeless are vets.
Those who put body and soul on the line are just fodder units.
The wealthiest 2%, however, get theirs.
Makes me wonder why there aren't riots in the streets.
