    Don't let the left vs. the right show divide you. We are all one. 9/11 was a massive lie. It was an attack on us by traitors to our country that live in our country. Please seek REAL justice for these families and victims. There is overwhelming evidence of a conspiracy check out Corbett Report on his website and on YT, check out Architects and Engineers for 911 truth

                To be treat with such comtempt by the political class is just so indicitive of the times.

                  Every single member of that committee who, after listening to Jon speak, didn't applaud, and had a look of almost disgust on their face, needs to be remembered for those actions....I don't care how they voted on the bill, the looks on their faces tells you exactly what they really think....those individuals make me sick....

                        In 20 years they need to amend textbooks to include Jon Stewart and this speech. A true man of character. He recognizes a terrible injustice against the brave first responders of 9/11 and stands up for what is right. Bravo Jon Stewart, you are a great man.

                          They shouldn't be called first responders; they should be called liquidators. They did what they had to do and have a shorter lifespan because of it.

                                  The US government treats the 9/11 First Responders with the same casual disregard as they did with the veteran's of Vietnam, most who became suicidal, drug addicted, and homeless. Today Middle East war veteran's are committing suicide to the tune of 22 soldiers a day. Does anyone see a pattern here??

                                      WE ALL NEED TO GET TRUTHERS IN NEW YORK SET UP A PARADE WITH FIR FIGHTERS, architects, engineers, scientists, AND even iron workers. march down to ground zero... now that my friends will shake up the nation. the main stream media will have no chance to demonize it and congress will see we are not playing games here. This take time but we have to start the processes right away.

                                      this will work . the more fire fighters the better.

                                          Okay I'm totally watching this and they're watching the camera movement and they're all putting their eyes on it so far this is the beginning of this statement and it's straight up a political action I believe 9/11 is a terrible Day in the United States history but I'm not seeing much other than pandering to a camera so far. Okay I don't know enough about the bill that they're trying to put up but like I said it's a complete political video and I don't care for misleading political videos when they don't put all the facts Ford so yeah I complete down vote for me and the sad part is I actually go out and fight fires in real life and put my life on the line all the time and I can't even trust this video of being real so I've lost all my respect for it and I have to get it a down vote!

                                            I was a senior when 9/11 happened. I am appalled by this speech! I am sickened by my fellow Americans, our elected officials, and this political system. America is not the greatest country anymore and will never be if we don't change our mind and actions. I am tired of the BS!

                                              voting should not be a bundle like your cable package. Who cares if it takes 3 days to vote on everything, that's their damn job.

                                                            This makes me enraged! What kind of world do we live in where first responders, AMERICAN HEROS are turned away by lawmakers like stray animals, when they need help. These are people who are living day to day, paycheck to paycheck. Where's the outrage?! These men and women responded to the worst terrorist attack on American soil, killing AMERICANS. NEVER AGAIN

He did it because it was the right thing to do. He looked those selfish, greedy lawmakers in the eye and fought tooth and nail for those first responders.

Our military and our first responders dont get squat in funding when they desperately need it but you can be damn sure that lawmakers want to put more money in the pockets of companies like Raytheon and Northrop Grumman and keep those CEOs rich, its disgusting.
