Why Washington Treats 9/11 First Responders Like Trash

An excerpt from, "9/11 first responders still waiting on aid, 2 years after Obama signed compensation bill":
Ground Zero responders and lower Manhattan residents sickened or injured in the 9/11 attacks can forget about any financial help from Uncle Sam before the holidays.

Nearly two years after President Obama signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act on Jan. 2, 2011, no one has gotten a dime.

"We're going into the third year of the law, and the fact that no one's been compensated after eight years of hard work to get the bill passed is unacceptable," fumed Ground Zero advocate John Feal.
Washington is sending a very clear message to the entire country by denying compensation for 9/11 first responders. The message is this: The government is not going to help you. You are on your own. And that also goes for you who risk your lives to save your neighbours. Your job in life is to die, preferably a quick and painless death but cancer works, too. We will not get in the way of that natural process by giving you medical aid and extending your life. So don't play the role of the hero and then ask for relief when you are hurt. Just die.

Washington treats citizen heroes who risk their lives to save their fellow countrymen in a time of crisis like trash, so imagine what they think of the general population. They're basically saying, "go fuck yourself you worthless slaves."
