Mr. Stewart Went to Washington for a 9/11 Call to Action
Comedian and 9/11 first responders activist Jon Stewart spoke on Capitol Hill yesterday.
Sometimes a video says everything.
As reported by Rebecca Morin of USA TODAY earlier this afternoon.
One day after former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart gave tearful and impassioned testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, the panel unanimously passed the bill.
Thank you to all of the heroic 9/11 first responders who were in Congress yesterday, who have been struggling with health issues directly related to 9/11 and to all those who risked their lives to save their fellow American on that tragic September morning 18 years ago. We will never forget your bravery and sacrifice.
On the one hand, we’re all glad that Jon Stewart said what he did. But on the other hand, Jon Stewart never should have had to say what he did yesterday with 9/11 first responders quietly sitting behind him, waiting for Congress to fulfill their pledge to never forget.
