Skip to comments.Gibbs seeks help from Stewart

Robert Gibbs, President Obamas press secretary, told reporters on Tuesday that he hopes the Comedy Central host can persuade enough Republican senators to vote for a 9/11 health bill so it can head to the presidents desk.
Stewart has dedicated lengthy segments on The Daily Show to the legislation that would help the first responders on Sept. 11.

yeah use Steward to help you circumvent government procedures....no debate,no discussions,...just do it because the rats need it.....they DEEM it. Dumbo needs another feather.
I guess that using pork for blackmail is the only thing the libs know.
What I can’t understand is the amount we are talking about. Let’s say a couple hundred first responders are facing catastrophic medical bills (like a million $ a piece). Then let’s add some to that (for future undiagnosed illnesses) and whip out a $400-500 million bill. Bingo - do it - it’s the right thing to do!
Then I hear the intial bill was for $8+BILLION..(since cut to $6.2BILLION) and is chock full of a bunch of other stuff too. Can they ever just tell the dang truth?
Every one of the first responders has a gold plated Union medical/pension plan. No a single one of them has been denied care.
The City of New York has failed to plan for the medical liability of their pension plan (California you are next!)
The more apt title for this bill is the "New York City Medical and Pension Fund Bail Out Bill"
so where is that 6.2 billion? how can these folks not have been covered for the last ten years with all the money that was donated, billiions, etc...??? am i missing something here?
He should try using another Stewart....maybe Martha.....
Any Republican who succumbs to pressure from this pair of clowns deserve to be voted out of office ASAP.
Yep. Saw Gibbs/Stewart and thought Gibbs needs help? From Tony? LOL
Shame on Stewart. Propaganda.
For the record, any story with the comedy central guy should read:
“FAILED ACTOR, JON STEWART....”
