To macjake: Victims and insurance

  • Hello Craig,

    For a while there was temporary government funding for those suffering from 9/11 related illnesses, but it was about to run out of money. First responders and other workers who are dying from cancer had to go to Washington D.C. and plead there cases. More people are getting sick, and they and their families were about to lose coverage for their illnesses. Finally, just a few months ago, Congress passed a new bill extending funding for current and future victims. It's really outrageous that they were ever in danger of losing medical assistance in the first place. That's just how dysfunctional things are over here...

    Thanks for your critique and question.
