                I disagree a lot with John Stewart in general but this was brilliant. He didn't have to do this. He fought hard for what he thought was right and succeeded on behalf of his fellow New Yorkers. Much love from New Zealand.

                      50 years from now, retarded people will be using their minds to post about how the system is broken because Congress didn't do something for some guys that politicians said they care about. It never strikes Americans that maybe their govt just doesn't really care. Certain demographics are going to vote a particular direction no matter what, so some shit you'll get to whenever the fuck you get to it. What the hell are the families of 1st responders gonna do, vote for a bunch of Black Far Leftists? Fuck outta here.

                            Well, well the efforts ofJohn Stewart made "the sonald" do the right thing; I'll bet forceing him to help the people he called"losers" is gonna stick in his craw the rest of his life!

                                Bush and O bomb a did nothing for the vets either, Trump just signed the bill and has been fighting for veterans since he arrived in office.

                                  da , he dropped a lot of bombs... read Books on 911 By Chris Bollyn and learn who did it. I know a great deal about 911 , I could give lectures on the subject.

                                      This is about 9/11 first responders, not war veterans... try to keep up. Btw, making up nicknames by rearranging or adding letters to someone's name is super childish. Do you actually think you're being clever??

                                                When a comedian has to come yell at you, say you should be ashamed and that your a bunch of cowards, to get you to help the first responders of 9/11 is when you know you have a problem. This man never stops amazing me. He really is great.

                                                        I still remember there was a documentary where someone brought some first responders over to Canada and they were treated foc. After treatment, they hailed them as heroes and wished them well. Why I brought this up is because I would like to make a point that its extremely shameful for Americans when your own government won't even help.

As for the members of Congress that have idiotically remained silent and indifferent to the suffering of these extremely brave men and women, shame on you.

European countries have adopted our American values yet WE fail to uphold them. It’s embarrassing that first responders and veterans get treated like absolute garbage. That ignorant self absorbed POS and the parasites holding the highest levels of office use their power and greed to help only those within their fraternity. And take credit for accomplishing other people’s successes.

I spent 22 years inside government. I've seen this kind of gross injustice and corruption over and over. I will quit my job and work on your campaign full time. The men and women behind you need you - the country needs you. We need you because you give a damn. If the men and women occupying the halls of Congress showed 1/4 the civic duty and patriotism as those men and women who ran towards danger, the nation would be a million times better off. Please run.

We can never forget the heroic efforts and sacrifices of the first responders of 9/11. Their efforts probably saved thousands of American lives that morning and we must do all that we can to stand behind them 100% and provide them the funding the need and deserve. Thank you Jon Stewart for having the backs of these American heroes!

They don't give a fuck about average Americans , they have their own agendas. I think life in America is too fast and not everybody has the time to search and look into details and seek truth, majority of the people will trust the news shown on tv. so anything the Tv says , they will believe it. Poor and average citizens will suffer the most whether its happening in developed countries or developing countries, because of corrupt leaders.

It’s only logical to conclude that the first responders are victims of war. Their care should be included in the over inflated defense budget. Shit is sad...

It's shameful that we even have to debate this in Congress. 9/11 responders shouldn't have to worry about wether they'll have enough food on the table or money in the bank, or medicine for health issues, it should be automatically provided without question
