Part 4: Why I refuse to play nice in the sand box. VCF 911 FUNDING

https://www.newsweek.com/house-passes-september-11-victim-compensation-fund-funded-1449004- 'An Affirmation That Congress Is Keeping Its Promise': House Votes to Renew 9/11 Victims Fund Through 2090

Nearly two decades after several terrorist attacks killed thousands of people on American soil, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to effectively extend indefinitely the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund (VCF)—the pot of money provided to 9/11 first responders suffering from medical issues, including cancer, and which was scheduled to expire next year.

The measure overwhelmingly passed the Democratic-controlled House with a vote of 402-12. Eleven Republicans and one Independent voted against the measure. Nineteen lawmakers—nine Democrats and 10 Republicans—did not vote.

And I will take a page out of the Trump playbook..BOTH SIDES. I'm betting that those Democrats were going to be challenged for doing something RIGHT..

So to the Republicans (since they are most of you) who didn't want to extend this and think its just a NEW YORK PROBLEM.. Thank you!

To those who pushed for it, and who have a pair of balls and realize its not just a New York Problem. I thank you as well....

    As non American, I can see your point and the necessity for such a fund for civilian victims.

    However, where I have a real great problem is your sentence

    "... several terrorist attacks killed thousands of people on American soil"

    How many tens of thousands of civilians did American troops (and British/French/German of course) kill and consider them as irrelevant "collateral damage" when they attacked every imaginable country in the world under the pretext that it was to "protect the USA".

    Did the US government also fund the victims' families? Of course not.

    You see, that is what disturbs me most about the drama that hits civilians. Only those with the stronger voice are ever heard.
