Fox News’ Shep Smith Wallops GOPers For 9/11 Responders Bill: ‘It’s Disgusting’ (VIDEO)
Joining in on Jon Stewart’s outrage over the failure of the 9/11 first responders bill today was Fox News’ Shep Smith, who asked: “How do they sleep at night?”
Stewart devoted his whole show last night to gravely attacking Senate Republicans for voting against the bill, which would provide health care to the first responders on September 11.
Shep was equally incensed: “Who’s going to hold these people’s feet to the fire? We’re able to put a 52-story building so far down there at Ground Zero, we’re able to pay for tax cuts for billionaires who don’t need them and it’s not going to stimulate the economy. But we can’t give health care to Ground Zero first responders who ran right into the fire?”
“It’s disgusting,” he continued. “It’s a national disgrace, it’s a shame and everybody who voted against it should have to stand up and account for himself or herself.”
Chris Wallace agreed: “It’s a national shame.”
