  • I love Jon Stewart for this. He is fighting for this because he believes in it and you can feel his sincerity when he speaks.

  • As your neighbor in 🇨🇦 This reminds me of who the people of the U.S.A. are. 9/11 is, will always be inked into my memory. We never forgot the bravery of the firefighters, E.M.S., police and anyone who bravely went into the buildings and went into the pile. 9/11 fund extended to 2090. This was more than overdue. Congress may have forgotten you, but we sure didn't!!❤ To those who weren't in their seats for this.... Disrespectful.

  • I'm not American but I am a neighboring Canadian. My impressions of New York and their First Responders was that New York loved their First Responders they the caring about them kind of like other people would Sports athletes and so when over the almost 20 years I've been hearing growing up how these responders that were so respected and help great pride in often now fight everyday for their life instead of focusing on fighting for the lives of the rest of New York who claimed to love them. This is not how love or respect shown and truly honestly my I have no desire to ever go to New York no matter how many celebrities or Sports athletes or actors promoted I just watched the news and I see the truth Within they may call it the Big Apple but it seems to look like a rotten apple. I sure hope that New York can change that

Jon hasn’t always been my cup of tea per say in the past & learning of his past work.. has made me admire his dedication & passion to first responders!! Political affiliation or your opinion on the PD should not play into dislike this matter. I’m so disappointed that so many people disliked supporting Fire fighters, EMS of 9-11 & getting them the necessary medical treatment that is owed to them for saving us ALL!!

  • How unpatriotic do you have to be to put a dislike on this video? what is this man saying that you disagree with? He fights for the people who many of which sacrificed their lives and wellbeing to respond to a crisis of America, now America will not respond to there crises. it is pretty simple!!! PS. also keep in mind that Congress is pushing for a personal pay increase during all of this. sorry if this sounds angry but I'm just very surprised by 2.8k dislikes, there should be 0.

  • Republicans: There is no money to help the 9/11 first responders,but there is plenty of money to give massive tax breaks to the rich. Leave it to the Republicans. Always ready to lend a helping hand to those who need it least. Jon Stewart tells congress "Do your job!". Well, for Republicans and too many Democrats their job is to protect their rich donors from ever having to look at or even think about members of the lower classes. And certainly not to see any money going to those lower classes that could be going to them.

That's what we have to get passed when someone is right then we all should stand by them, and Jon is 100% right, and his other views most of which I don't agree with should not, and does not matter we have to come together as one when it's something this important.

These first responders went in to save people from bldgs which were attacked by Terrorists (from Saudi Arabia mind you). Like Jon said these weren't singled out attacks of a "home Terrorist" in protest bc of a New York issue. I'm so glad he put them all in their place. Hurrah for Jon Stewart.
