NEW YORK – Thousands of 9/11 rescue and recovery workers suing New York City over their exposure to clouds of pulverized glass and cement at the World Trade Center site have to decide whether they have more faith in their lawyers or Congress.

Some workers offered a share of a new settlement worth up to $713 million Thursday might be tempted to hold out for a potentially more lucrative option — a federal bill that could pay billions to people who die or become disabled because of illnesses caused by trade center ash.

I think its pretty sad, and pathetic actually that the people involved in the rescue and clean up of the World Trade Center site have to sue to see that their health is taken care of.

I think it was ludicrous to declare the air at ground zero safe when there was no real way to tell if it was or what affects it might have. They should have atleast assumed there was risk and provided the proper equipment.

Whats even worse is that the government has seemingly turned its back on these people, and to an extent even loop them in with "truthers", claiming that any ill effects they have aren't in relation to the clean up.
