How can there even be a debate over providing funds for first responders?

Maybe they don't want to fund it because in some legal way that makes them responsible and then if it comes out who was really behind the attacks, the people getting benefits from a First Responder fund might have some legal standing to sue the government.

There are all kinds of legal things, like if you owe a company money and they want a certain payment, but you cannot pay that, so you send them something each month, less than what they want, but their taking that payment has legal meaning with regards to acceptance, they then have problems if they want to sue you and get a judgement against you, simply because you have made payments and they have accepted them.

I think the govt. does not want any culpability, which might open up other legal recourse. Look at what happened with Agent Orange and Viet Nam, the govt. did not even want to admit they were using it, once that was proven, they denied that it caused the vets problems, when that was proven, then they still made the wounded/afflicted fight to get treated for it because they knew it would be very expensive and long term.

It totally ticks me off that some of the people who won't vote to give these people medical care are the ones who got elected, or tried to, on the backs of their work. Makes me think even less...if that's possible...about the people in DC.
