9/11 Worker Aid Bill; It Doesn’t Matter How Many Republicans Voted Against It, The Dems Sabotaged The Bill.


The house of Representatives has recently failed to pass H.R.847 James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010. This bill would provide immediate healthcare for people who have developed illnesses relating to their work at ground zero. This massive failure ignited outrage by Democratic Congressmen Anthony Weiner of NY, causing a quite a show on the house floor (shown below). This outburst seems genuine at first glance, but if you take a closer look you will see how its a sly move to cover up the truth.

In a recent interview with Republican Congressmen Peter King of NY, King states that the democrats required a 2/3rds vote instead of a simple majority. The 2/3rd voting method is, according to King, the reason the bill failed to pass. The reason for the voting method used by the democrats is it would keep the Republicans from being able to filibuster. The filibuster allows for the minority party to keep debate going for however long they want, effectively slowing down or even stopping the passage of bills. This has become the little wrench which has been strategically thrown in the Democratic machine over, and over again. The process to end a filibuster, known as cloture,  has only been used by Democrats 117 times since January 3, 2009.

King goes on to point out the important issue that political platform doesn’t matter. The only thing that really matters is that not enough votes were cast in favor of the bill. This is, in Kings own words, “a case of sabotage” by the Democrats. The dems, who cast 4 opposing votes, was clearly the reason the bill failed. This had nothing to do with the 155 thumbs down by the Republicans.

King states he is working together with Democratic Congressmen Robert Zimmerman from NY to bring the bill back to the house floor. King hopes that the process to bring it back from the dead, will be a speedy one. He also points out hopes of adding new laws dealing with illegal aliens in the bill to fund healthcare for 9/11 workers. This is clearly the perfect bill to exploit in order to pass laws against those damn illegals.
