Rep. Weiner Blasts McCain For Describing Work on 9/11 Health Bill as “Fooling Around”

Following comments made by Senator John McCain, in which he described the Senate’s work on important legislation like the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act as “fooling around”, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D – Queens and Brooklyn) released the following statement:

“There is nothing trivial or silly about the broken lives and damaged bodies of Americans who are slowly dying because they came to the aid of others in a time of war.”

“Of all senators, you’d think John McCain would get that.”

“Simple question for Senator McCain and the other GOP senators: Why not give 9/11 first responders an up or down vote?”
