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..

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....
