Former ‘Daily Show’ host Jon Stewart seems to have come out of retirement to attack senator Mitch McConnell and others who have recently voted against a medical health care bill for 9/11 first responders. Jon Stewart is apparently very angry with Congress, and a recent video has shown just how serious Stewart is taking this matter. In fact, Stewart marched right up to Capitol Hill, and he gave Congress a piece of his mind.
Many reporters and journalists were there to cover the event, and a recent video on YouTube has gone viral. Jon Stewart slammed McConnell and everyone else who voted against the 9/11 health care bill. He also bashed Republicans that voted for a bill that would only benefit energy workers and not 9/11 first responders. Stewart feels that the brave men and women that risked their lives on 9/11 deserve the proper medical care and health benefits. Instead, energy workers have been given health care rights by Republicans.
This type of publicity could ruin Mitch McConnell’s future congressional hopes forever. Democrats and Republicans seldomly agree on anything, but a health care bill for 9/11 first responders is a hard argument for anyone to make. Followers of both parties agree that 9/11 first responders should be given the proper treatment that they have earned.
Even though Jon Stewart is known for being a funny man, it seems that his recent words have earned him an even bigger following. Stewart is a well spoken and passionate individual, and he is rallying up his followers to help the 9/11 medical health care bill get passed. September 11th, 2001 was one of the most tragic days in the history of our great nation, and refusing to support the men and women who risked their lives to save others is truly unconstitutional. Mitch McConnell and the other corrupt senators have been put on blast by a man that most people consider to be a comedian. Jon Stewart has proven that anyone can stand up for what’s right, even in the face of powerful senators.
