9/11 health bill vote may come Wednesday

Washington (CNN) - A health care bill meant to provide free medical treatment to those suffering from the health effects of working in and near ground zero following the 2001 attacks may come up for a Senate vote on Wednesday.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, said it appeared the bill will come up for a Senate vote once lawmakers vote on START, a nuclear arms control pact with Russia and a top foreign policy priority of President Obama.

    This legislation has been in the works for over a year and went through the proper committee hearings (unlike Sen. Coburn claimed, who apparently decided to skip it). No more excuses and dishonesty from these politicians while the patriotic responders suffer.

    Support our American heroes and pass the 9-11 Responders Bill now!

    Any Republican that does not vote for this and did the old "patriot""support the heroes" banter earlier (when it suited them) should be banished forever to "HypocriteLand"
