    They shouldn't have to beg... but a step in the right direction is still a step. 

    "The House Judiciary Committee unanimously passed a bill which would permanently reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Wednesday, the day after comedian Jon Stewart gave impassioned testimony in support of the bill in video that quickly went viral.

    The bill will now go to the floor for a full vote in the House of Representatives, where it is likely to pass. It's unclear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take up the bill in the Senate, although Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said Wednesday that he was "imploring, pleading, even begging" McConnell to bring the bill to the floor as soon as it passes in the House."

    I've been trying to see rwhat is atually in the bill but can't find anything.

    I want to see if anyone tacked other things to the bill to not make it pass i the house.
    Here’s the history with links. I believe today’s vote was to reauthorize it and fund it. It’s already “in effect” until 2090. And talk about hypocrisy and adding riders? Both sides are not the same.

    I'm looking for the Victims act like @mickeyrat mentions.  It is quite different than the Zadroga act.

    but this part wasnt......

    The act was reauthorized in 2015 for 90 years. But a portion of the law — the Victim Compensation Fund — was only funded for five years, through the end of 2020.  The fund aimed to provide necessary financial support for the thousands who suffered serious medical issues, including a spate of cancer diagnoses, after the 2001 attacks.

    Yes, that is what I want to see if people tack things on.

    Introduced in House (10/12/2018)

    Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act

    This bill funds through FY2090 the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001.

    Additionally, the bill modifies the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF):

    • to allow claims to be filed until October 2089,
    • to require VCF policies and procedures to be reassessed at least once every five years (currently, at least once annually),
    • to require claimants to be paid for the amount by which a claim was reduced on the basis of insufficient funding,
    • to remove the cap on noneconomic damages in special circumstances, and
    • to adjust the annual limit on economic loss compensation for inflation.

    Been saying it for years.  The Government doesn't give a shit about The People.  None of them care about any of us, any of you.

    or/and just a regular stand up mensch. 

    Wish he would debate Fox News hosts more though. Always fun going back to on youtube.
