So per this law the truck drivers who hauled debris to the landfill hit the lottery if this bill passes. The BS and money grabs will never stop.
You could apply for these benefits if you had a Sabrettes stand near Ground Zero.
Only if said truck drivers suffered medical conditions as a result of that hauling. I’ve never dealt with the 9/11 first responders medically, but I’ve seen (and treated) people suffering from COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and the like. It’s not pretty, and when you run out of health benefits, it gets very ugly indeed. Some of these people will never have what most of us think of as normal health again because they rushed to help. I have no objection to part of my taxes going to take care of first responders and those who sifted through the debris, especially those whose health benefits have run out or their coverage wasn’t first rate.
“So per this law the truck drivers who hauled debris to the landfill hit the lottery if this bill passes.”
So per this law? Have you read the bill? This pays for health care costs not covered by worker’s insurance plans...nothing more. Even the best health coverage in the nation has copays, deductibles, gaps and caps. This fills in those holes so the 9/11 responders don’t leave their families bankrupt after they die. If you made a fireman’s salary with New York cost of living, you too would feel the strain of copays, deductibles and caps on certain drugs and treatments REALLY fast. They aren’t winning a lottery with this bill, they are being allowed to die with slightly more peace of mind.
Do NOT let Obama and the dems make you cynical and bitter that you look past the people that selflessly helped our nation after an attack on the NATION, not just New York.
