Oh so similar to the black farmer payoff debacle. The devil is in the details, and the details are where the evil demorats lurk. It’s there where the answer is.
Many millions of dollars were donated to the uniformed workers who suffered on 9/11. They were the survivors who helped work on the debris pile.
Initially Mayor Bloomberg resisted the thought of these payouts but soon Shumer and Peter King got on the bandwagon of having the government (the taxpayers) fund the claims.
The numbers have escalated to the point of ridiculousness but it hasn’t stopped Peter King from his never ending demands for more and more and more money for New York.
