Just when I thought it was a good time to put down my pen and take a vacation, Congress goes and does something so asinine, so incredibly self-serving, that I couldn't let it go without commenting.
This past week our elected leaders shot down the 9/11 Health Bill, 255 to 159, which lacked the 2/3 votes needed for passage. The destructive partisan rhetoric that came about after the vote, from both sides, was equally repulsive. I'm not going to get into all the specifics of the vote, punch and counter-punch, and divisive Washington "bull" on this blog - I'll leave that to smarter people than me to debate. But the very fact that the political brawn in Washington would use ailing first responders for political leverage is sickening - shame on them!!
