Jon Stewart took time away from his semi-retired life on a family farm in New Jersey to visit the nation's capitol and yell at Congress on Tuesday. The formerThe Daily Showhost, was there to advocate for the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, which is running out of money and has needed to slash payouts to ailing first-responders and other survivors by more than half. He was mad, frustrated because there only a handful of congress people, and he really voiced his frustration.....
"As I sit here today I can't help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is, for what the entire process of getting healthcare and benefits for 9/11 First Responders has come to. Behind me, a filled room, of 9/11 First Responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.
Sick and Dying, they brought themselves down here to speak; to no one.
It's an embarrassment to our country and a stain on this institution."
