By now, most have you have seen or heard the maniacal Anthony Weiner rant from last night. Carol, of No Sheeples Here, wants people to know the real story behind the defeat of H.R. 847, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010.
It must be understood that Democrats pursued a procedural tack that required two thirds of the House to prevail enabling Republicans to defeat the bill that would pay up to $7.4 billion in aid to people sickened by toxic dust from the World Trade Center. Weiner’s rant doesn’t do anyone any good—least of all to the party that controls the legislative and executive branches of government.
