“Your indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity; time.” This made me bawl.

John Stuart is amazing for this, using his voice to help these people. He doesn't have to nor does he get paid for this. Congress is a disgrace. Meanwhile they keep giving themselves raises. Sad. This brought tears to my eyes because this is truly sad

I sincerely thank Luis Alvarez and all 9/11 first responders for the incomparable sacrifices that they made to save innocent lives. 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.

Almost half of congress is republican, so, this isn't a partisan matter. Just sayin.

“Never forget the heroes of 9/11.” “Well here they are! And WHERE ARE THEY?!”

Oh my god. Find who voted against this and make sure they never work in government again. This is utterly disgraceful.

Beyond appalling. 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.

You do realize that there are plenty of millionaires in the Democratic Party .. one for example is house speaker Nancy Pelosi and another is the infamous Maxine waters and on and on ... watching listen to something beside the lunatics on msnbc and cnn and you might open up your mind !

The Daily Show Episode December 16, 2010, where Jon Stewart changed format to interview first responders. Probably one of the greatest moments in tv. And Im not even American!

Jon Stewart should run for a political office; he has the tenacity, and the courage, and the ability to speak forthright, to be a true leader.

Mr. Stewart, I know it's the last thing you want but PLEASE RUN for the House or Senate. 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.

How can we ignore our heroes in their time of need? Shame is the only word that makes sense. Take care of those that have sacrificed themselves to save us.
