Democrat Stands His Ground!
Whether you agree with him or not, you have to respect Anthony Weiner passion. Democratic New York Representative Anthony Weiner stood on the floor of the House and slammed Republicans for using procedure to block a bill that would provide health care to 9/11 responders. Weiner called the GOP loyalists "cowards" for refusing to vote yea or nay on adding a humanitarian amendment to the Public Health Services Act that would expand and improve health care benefits for 9/11 first responders. Many of these responders have become sick, because of the toxic substances they were exposed to on September 11th.
Frankly, I think he has every reason to be angry. The bill was not passed, but it's nice to see a politicians with so balls.
