Jon Stewart Blasts Congress Over 9-11 Victims Fund

Former Daily Show Host Jon Stewart Testifies On Need To Reauthorize The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund

Comedian, commentator and advocate Jon Stewart is blasting lawmakers over their lack of action on health care for 9-11 first responders. Stewart spoke following a congressional hearing today to reauthorize funding for the 9-11 victim compensation fund. The fund that provides benefits to first responders and others dealing with illnesses related to the 2001 terror attacks is running short of money. The bill currently being considered would lock in funding and increase past payments to people sickened by toxins during the recovery.
