Republican senators were so worried about meeting with 9/11 responders who came to Washington today that at least one called the cops on them, the Daily News has learned.

Even before the nine responders had a chance to start visiting senators’ offices - where they intended to stay until meeting with legislators - they were greeted by Capitol Police, who had been called by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Me.).

Collins apparently reacted to a story in today’s News which quoted a letter to senators from 9/11 advocate John Feal warning that he and others planned to sit in offices until they got meetings - or the police made them leave.

Collins is among the senators the 9/11 community hopes will come over to their side, but her call to authorities left them wondering if they could succeed.

GOP Senator Calls Cops on 9/11 Responders

We must be slipping ATS I didn't see this when I did a search. How nice of her to call the cops even before they showed up. These people are hero's are they not? Is this the way the GOP treats hero's? Apparently so, considering that only 1 GOP supported the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, but he voted against bringing this bill up for a vote till the tax breaks passed. What does the GOP have against 9/11 responders, the government did tell everyone on national tv on 9/11 that it was safe for them to be at ground zero when it obviously wasn't.

Wow, I still can't believe any one votes for these people.

ATS doesn't like discussing anything to do with right wing matters that may make them look bad.
it sort of goes against the general narration...remember, everyone became a conservative libertarian..which means, ignore any wrongdoing from the GOD...erm, I mean GOP.

Really? The neo-cons are the worst of the worst, and most of the tea partiers are just the re-branded christian coalition, both of which are controlled by the mega corporations. I've certainly never given a free pass to any of them.

Free health care to anyone, even 911 responders is a form of socialism according to the GOP.

And according to the GOP, socialism is bad(even though most don't even understand what it is).

Good work GOP, way to fight the good fight.

Jon Stewart dedicated most of his show to the first responders and this bill not passing.

Now do you people see just how highly your goverment esteems its people?
Not even the faithful servants get their due...
Think of it, twenty years on the police force or in the gire department where harms way is the order of the day....will get you a small pension and a retirement dinner, but after that you are on your own just like the rest of us civilians.
For what it is really worth, the whole idea of contibuting even dying for this piece of corruption is just not what any but the most brainwashed would do willing ly.
The 9/11 responders deserve better, all those who have given of themselves to make this place home for everyone,they all deserve better.
The girl that serves your drive through coffee every morning deserves better,
Those in power have estranged themselves from their constituents so badly that they are getting paranoid of them...hmmm very interesting....
what if one of them had been shot?

I've got agree with Jon Stewart on this one. The GOP no longer has the right to cash in on 9/11, not after this. This is reprehensible in the extreme. Regardless of who is responsible for 9/11, these people are heroes, and should be treated as such, not like common criminals. I work with a bunch of republicans, and they are currently scurrying for ways to justify the GOP's actions with their comfortable, "God is on our side" worldview. Good post.
