    If the people of this country don't get that we are nothing more then pawns. We still have a long way to go, it's even more interesting to me that Colin Kaepernick. Went through what congress should be going through, just goes to show you how dumb Americans are.

              Who dislikes this?! Just because it was uploaded on CNN? If that's the case you need to rethink your values and life. Disgusting.

                McConnell sprinted in to the senate to vote for the Iraq war, the 2 trillion dollar tax theft & for every corrupt bill for the rich. He will get to it when he gets to it. But most of those first responders voted for these selfish racist republican. Wake up America, these corrupt politician take your tax dollars & lives just to support the military contractors & themselves, the money never gets to the soldier or now first responders.

                        Thank you, to every first responder and their family! You saved countless lives and saved our city on 9/11 and in the subsequent year. You deserve MUCH better! Mitch McConnell & his majority deserves to ROT: (
                        Anyone who was there remembers the smell downtown which lasted for MONTHS, that chemical smell stuck to NYFD trucks, no matter how many times they got washed....
                        Mitch McConnells & his obstructionists owe their lives to the bravery of the passengers on flight 93, which was bound to crash on Capitol Hill in DC. Ungrateful motherfuckers! #DitchMitch2020

                              So many groups suffer needlessly.
                              Foster kids are promised the best of care when they are unceremoniously ripped from our families because the govt believes thwy can do a better job than our parents... Yet they dont even attempt to try.

                              We end up struggling (most of us) all our lives raped beaten torrmented starved beat down mentally/emotionally/spiritually...
                              And then on our own as soon as we turn 18yrs old with no aid whatsoever.
                              911 responders who should always have the guarantee that they will be cared for after having no choice but to go into that death trap and save our people.
                              The disabled whp had no choice on being here.
                              The military who sacrifice their tangible and untangible wellbeing for the good of our nation... Our people.
                              But none of these groups are even close to adequately cared for.
                              It makes me sick.

                                  What kind of person down votes this? Even if you some how do not agree with Stewart (which is beyond my comprehension, but I digress) this is our democratic process at work.

                                    Jon Stewart is an honorable man. Congress is an absolute joke. The 2 part system is bought and paid for. They do not work for the American people.

                                          America is a broken country! Just watch John Oliver every Sunday and you'll see how every part of your country has been broken by greed and special interests! I am shocked that even 9/11 responders have been compromised by that greed! It's shameful! Thank God they have a man like John Stewart on their side, and I hope he can rally enough support to help those brave public servants! It's up to American citizens to stand up, get involved and stop this ridiculous greed from destroying a great country!!

                                            The testimony is a lie. First responders have health insurance as New York city employees why would they not? The vast majority of new claimants from 9/11 are workers who cleaned up the mess or drove trucks. Now 18 years later they become ill and want to blame it on the work they did in 2001. It is easy to do that since 50 cancers have been blamed on this which is ridiculous.

                                            There has been several bills to fund these people. There was a bill in 2001, 2011 and the 2011 bill was expanded in 2015. $13B has been requisitioned. the notion that people have done nothing is a lie. the notion that first responders have no health care is a lie.

                                              @thesilverfish5 Ok but they should all have good health insurance from the city of New York whether their illness is from 9/11 or not. Why is that an issue? We have already passed bills making billions available for this. The 2011 bill was supposed to provide enough money until 2050.

                                              21,000 people have received an average of $238,000 each so far from that fund so acting like nothing has ever been done is bullshit.

                                              Swedish American yeah but it’s these specific first responders who got sick from the work they did on 9/11 which was confirmed by medical professionals. And Stewart is mad that they are not extending the bill and avoiding conversation about the bill.

He rehearsed his speech quite well, he's got talented writers. But all that fake sentiment and acting from his end takes away the beauty of the cause and shifts our eyes from the real issues being addressed here, he might had good reasons to do it at the beginning but at the end he just wants to be under the spotlights.

When you die, they'll start a wonderful college fund in your name, for the responder's children, if they have any after their exposure to that whole mess. But not while you're alive, Jon. They don't negotiate with terro...i mean comedians trying to support our entire first-responder industry. The comments to this video restore my faith in humanity, but governments, in general...they have no good credit left with me, only with the idiots who don't mind being duped.
