McConnell fires back at Jon Stewart over 9/11 victims fund

Mitch McConnell Responds to Jon Stewart Dig: ‘I Don’t Know Why He’s Bent Out of Shape’

Stewart: Mitch McConnell Is 'White Whale' of 9/11 Funding

"I think the entire country is hoping that Democrats remember their job is governing, not resisting". "It sounds to me like he is looking for some way to take offense".

"I want to make it clear that this has never been dealt with compassionately by Sen". "First responders who ran into danger that day deserve certainty that they & their families will have the benefits they've earned".

He was asked why there were few members of the House Judiciary subcommittee on hand when Stewart testified last Tuesday.

According to a report from CBS News, Dr. Jacqueline Moline, Chair of Occupational Medicine, Epidemiology and Prevention at Hofstra's School of Medicine, told the committee that over 11,000 types of cancer have been reported since September 11, 2001.

Comedian Jon Stewart spent the past week lobbying for a most noble cause: the continued - and hopefully permanent - funding from Congress for 9/11 victims.

The current law was renewed in 2015 and is set to expire in 2020, but the fund's administrator announced in February that there was insufficient funding to pay all claims. "There's no way we won't address this problem appropriately".

McConnell also shrugged off Stewart's criticism that half the room was empty while he and the first responders were giving testimony.

"What is the objection?" said McConnell.

The measure includes $3.3 billion for humanitarian resources like diapers, clothing, food, and bed space for unaccompanied migrant children; $1.1 billion for operations and support to address the crisis: detention beds, personnel costs, and human smuggling investigations; and $178 million for things like technology upgrades. "The idea that this is a state issue.9/11 was - you know, it would be like after Pearl Harbor saying 'you know what?" I think there is a feeling of disbelief. "They've done it now for years".

The former host of "The Daily Show", who pleaded with House lawmakers last week to reauthorize the fund, questioned whether McConnell would ensure its passage in the GOP-controlled upper chamber. "I don't know why he's all bent out of shape, but we will take care of the 9/11 Victims' Compensation Fund".
