Congress is heartless. They have access to the best medical care and at the cost of the taxpayers for life.
Yet they drag their feet on helping first responders all while using 9/11 as a trump card whenever it suits their needs.

Their worker's compensation should be paying for ALL their bills.
This isn't a Federal government problem. It is for NYC's Worker's comp insurance to pay.
