      No chance with the obstructionist "party of NO" Teabaggers coming to town. It's gonna be "ready....set....STOP" allover again for the next two years.

    My uncle was a fireman during 9/11. He was not in the towers at the time of the collapse, but he took part in the clean-up. Just one month ago, he was diagnosed with a very rare form of stomach cancer. He is not expected to make it to Christmas. He's a hero, and this rare form of cancer definitely was caused by breathing in all those toxic fumes. I hope that this bill covers the people that not just were in towers..but the men and women who took part in the clean up.

    I'm so glad the 9-11 responders got what was own to them. Mccain and coburn need grow-up and stop acting like five year olds.
