Republicans block health care aid bill for 9/11 responders who are getting sick because they were told the air quality at Ground Zero was OK on 9/11; Rep Weiner goes ballistic:

House Republicans late Thursday were able to corral enough votes to defeat a bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to those sickened by toxins resulting from the 9/11 attacks.

2003: Bush administration EPA Misled Public on 9/11 Pollution. White House ordered false assurances on air quality, report says

The Republicans voted AGAINST the unemployment extension, then voted FOR adding $59 BILLION to the debt with the war funding bill, then voted AGAINST health care aid for 9/11 responders!!! And they are FOR extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. They don't give a SHIT about anything except rich people!!!

Dem Alan Grayson: One day, a Republican operative offers $100 to anyone who'll punch me in the nose. The next day, I get a death threat.

The American people are hurting. As a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on Wall Street, millions of Americans have lost their jobs, homes, life savings and their ability to get a higher education.

“The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money and more power.

They claim to be superpatriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjugation”

Reuel Marc Gerecht’s screed justifying an Israeli bombing attack on Iran coincides with the opening the new Israel lobby campaign marked by the introduction of House resolution 1553 expressing full support for such an Israeli attack.
