‘We’re Just Not Going to Take Your Crap This Time’


Two representatives of a group of 9/11 first responders campaigning for the federal government to renew their healthcare benefits called out Republican Senators Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham on Wednesday, saying they weren’t going to take their “crap this time.”

John Feal and Brian McGuire, who were both first responders to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, appeared for an interview with CNN’s New Day host John Berman following a congressional hearing emploring lawmakers to reauthorize a victim compensation fund. The hearing drew national media attention, as former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, gave an impassioned speech, slamming lawmakers for not taking the issue seriously.

“History will show you, in 2010, 2015, it was Republican leadership [that opposed this],” Feal told Berman on Wednesday morning.
