On Thursday, December 9th, 2010, the Republican Senate blocked legislation sought to provide medical care to rescue workers and others who became ill as a result of breathing in toxic fumes, dust and smoke at the site of the WTC attack on September 11, 2001. Usually, TSB attempts to keep this forum as non-political as we can, yet, there is only one word that describes the actions of the U.S. Senate, DESPICABLE.
To hold the brave police, fire and emergency rescue workers hostage over party politics and the passage of a tax bill is immoral. Where were all these politicians when we were attacked, and after we were attacked? I implore each and everyone of you to pick up the phone and call every Republican Senator today threatening not to cast a ballot in their next election. If we have an ounce of decency left in our bones, now is the time to act. Tell anyone and everyone that you meet today to take the time out of their lives and do the right thing.
Whatever happened to the accolades that politicians threw around like a cheap $2 whore, but then, they are pretty good at doing that. TSB challeges OTW, Orthworld and OrthoSpine News to stop with their daily propaganda and give this issue some visibility. Let your voices be heard!
