Republicans spent Summer declaring Ground Zero “hallowed ground” and then spit on 9/11 firefighters

Washington (CNN) — A bill to provide medical benefits and compensation for emergency workers who were first on the scene of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks won approval Wednesday from the U.S. House.

The measure passed on a mostly partisan 268-160 vote. The Senate has yet to take up the issue.

President Barack Obama, who supported the measure, hailed its passage. “It is a critical step for those who continue to bear the physical scars of those attacks,” he said in a statement. “I applaud the House for its support of this bill and for standing up on behalf of these heroes, who served our country in its time of greatest need. I look forward to Congress completing consideration of this legislation so I can sign it into law.”

So all of those claims to support the 9/11 victims were about nothing.

This was not brave or patriotic you dipshit Republicans:-

This was:-

Importing British Neo Nazi skin heads from the EDF/SIOE to protest against Muslims building a non mosque not on Ground Zero had almost every Republican reaching for their white sheet. The tweets from the twit simply encouraged more hate. Republican candidates happily shared a platform with a European Neo Fascist Leader. They called their summer of hate campaign against Muslims “patriotic”. They claimed to be doing it for the victims of 9/11.

Yet when it came down to doing just a small tiny thing for the heroes of 9/11, a tiny bit of help that every US politician should have felt honour and duty bound to vote for, all but a handful of House Republicans spat in the very faces of those first responders. Typical.
