"Anthony Weiner lost it. The Democrats know that their majority is slipping away. They are crapping up -- uh, cracking up. That was a faux pas. That's a Freudian slip. I did not mean to say that. I apologize, I take it back. It's no big F-ing deal." Rush Limbaugh

When Rush comments on something, nothing else needs to be said.

I have to ask this question. At what point can we stop judging everything based on empathy and realize that, now more than ever, we need to really examine the detriment that our debt is causing us?

I'm sure everyone empathizes with these heroes and their suffering, but until we figure out how we're going to pay for all this, in my mind this is not being weighed with the appropriate amount of significance from all points of view.

Not trying to be cold-hearted, but at some point it needs to stop.

Flag and Star for the post, and many stars for many others
posts on here that support the 911 responders.

I think a lot of the ppl in the government are concerned
that so many of them are still alive.

With firefighters coming out saying the official story is a lie
it makes the pirates look bad.

We wouldn't want to draw attention to their crony capitalism and
how they ignored Eisenhower's warnings ?

So I can see why some ppl in the government would want
to cover their backsides by letting witnesses die sooner than needed.

Can't have firefighters talking on videos like the one in my
signature. In fact I am surprised they have not had an accident.

Poor analogies. In capitalism you risk capital which you have to take a chance at making more of it. If you can compare the risks of taking a job in emergency services to the stock market, then I'd fight against the soulless robotic world you'd help create.

It sounds like when government works for you, it's heroic democracy, when it works against you, it's Marxism or Communism or even *gasp* SOCIALISM!

The previous administrations have spent us to the brink, and then you hem and haw over pinching pennies about taking care of those responders on 9/11? Karma has a way of rolling around, friend... Lets hope it's not too hard on you...

More dems need to have a back bone like this guy. Although there was some politics involved, it doesn't excuse any republican or democrat that voted no for this bill. There shouldn't have been any no votes period!! This reminds me of our troops coming home from fighting for this country and our legislature turns their back on their mental and physical health care needs. Those first responders on 9/11 were heroes and should be treated as such. This just illustrates how legislators are ignorant and out-of touch about the needs of the people in this country.

Go Rep. Weiner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
S&F

Anyone who voted against this is evil. If it was buried in pork or something REMOVE the pork but pass this bill.

Idiot Congress.

Yes, the bill was loaded up with quite a few things nowhere near related to 9/11 first responders. The Republicans TRIED to get them removed, leaving the 9/11 items, and it was the DEMOCRATS who would not remove them.

It appears that many people on this thread are completely ignorant of the facts..........not a big surprise when it comes to democrats......

I agree. Democrats need to stop acting like cowards and start representing the people they put into office....not the gigantic internatioanl corporations that have taken over this country....which REPUBLICANS SEEM TO BE FINE WITH.

I've had it.

Why is it that the 9 11 first responders are so much more important then any first responder that is involved in a fire at some wearhouse with chemicals or health risks.How many other first responders are out there dieing from something they contracted while doing there job.Why is one more important then the other?

What happen to the billions of dollars that was donated when 9 11 happen and the 5 billion that the Red Cross just happen to missplace?If and when this bill does pass these first responders won't see 10 cents on the dollar.

Like someone said earlier,there is risk in these jobs,how about all the kids comeing back from the wars that are truely messed up,are you going to take care of them the rest of there lives beyond the VA medical care.Where does it stop???I'll tell you,it doesn't stop as long as it has a chance to get a vote or a guy like Wiener can grandstand of the backs of these first responders.

Read the bill,look at what was attached to it.

Rush Limbaugh has about as much integrity as Pee Wee Herman at a Porn Theater.

Geezus, I'm going to start calling you Mr. Ostrich...since you enjoy burying your head in the sand.

What you call courageous, I call an insult to those he claims to be trying to help.

You do realize that they chose to introduce a bill in such a way that they would have to have a super majority in order for it to pass, right? Why did they do this? Did they have to? No. They had the option of introducing it as a regular bill, where a simple majority would suffice.

Furthermore, they had enough votes, and then some, to pass the bill if they so chose. So why then, if they had the votes to pass this oh so important bill did they choose to introduce it in such a way as to insure that it could not pass? (And they did know beforehand that they lacked the 290 votes, but had the 230 votes).

Well, one might surmise that if they could pass the bill and chose not to, that they may have been trying to use it as a political tool.

Now, if this is the case and the issue is really about saving the lives of emergency responders, I ask you what kind of person would choose to not pass a bill that they could absolutely have passed at the expense of the lives of others to make a political point and to score points for "their" side? Certainly not someone I would want to represent me, regardless of political affiliation...

I like the part around 1:12 where he tries to hump the podium.

In my opinion, it's time for the Republicans to get slammed.

Much respect to Anthony

"Courageous "are you kidding me, the Republicans do not have enough votes to stop the Dems doing anything .
Its the lack of courage on the Dems part that they cannot pass the bill

You're absolutely correct on this.

The Healthcare Reform bill that passed, against the wishes of 75% of Americans wish, was passed without a single Republican vote.

All you Weiners need to stop and look at the reason why Republicans aren't voting for this measure. Do you really think that they're so stupid as to put there on jobs at jeopardy in this chaotic political climate?

It's all a staged and frantic ranting by one fanatic to shed a bad light on a party that's poised to take back control of Congress this November and all the Democrats know this.

Staged act! Pitiful liberals in Congress. They need to crawl in a hole somewhere and suck sewage.

If he wants to raise hell about anyone it should be the 12 Democrats that voted against this bill. Have you asked yourself the question, "I wonder what IS in this bill?"

I'll answer this one for you. The answer is: NO!

EDIT: I'm not addressing you nocents. You're correct on your analysis.

You may not have noticed, but the "progressives", or as you know them, marxists, have spent us into a state of immenent collapse.


You got it all wrong, that would be BUSH and the GOP that spent us into near collapse. Remember: Clinton (surplus) - Bush (record deficits).

TARP, to the tune of a 700 billion bailout to the greedy bankers that started the financial collapse? That was Bush, too.

Sorry, but it was the GOP under Bush that drove this country into financial ruin, and left us with two unfounded wars.


Get your "facts" straight. Obama has TRIPLED the deficit he "inherited" from Bush. You morons with Bush Derangement Syndrome really need to stop living in the past. Besides, 20 wrongs don't make a right.

You are arguing that because Bush exhibited bad behavior then everybody should. That argument sounds like something a 5 year old would use. Grow up, use some common sense and get out of the past.

That's basically what Weiner was saying. They care more about their jobs than the people. No matter how many ammendments the dems agree to they will still vote NO....period! They vote no on Bills they submitted in congress. They vote no just to vote no. Anything the Dems support that the Thugs submitted they turn around and say NO.

Another special interest group needing more billions....

You have misguided sympathy. If all these workers had worn the safety equipment issued and used it properly, they'd have no problems. All these guys are highly trained and know the risks they take. No one forced them there. How many of the pics do you see with respirators around the throat and goggles on the forehead trying to imitate Rommel in the desert.

Their argument is it was too hot to wear the equipment, well my response is, too bad, you caused your own problems.

I have no sympathy for any of these rescue workers.

Is there any other group we can possibly throw money at before the elections other than the over-taxed taxpayer in order to make headlines and buy votes.
