Here is Republican Senator Mitch McConnell refusing to make eye contact as he walks past Jon Stewart who successfully campaigned and got the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund passed. Senators Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell vehemently refused the bill, with Paul stating he “could not in good conscience vote for something that added to the deficit”. Economics over humans. What a fucking disgrace.
Cost of the Fund over the next decade is $10 billion.
Our military budget, for comparison, nears $600 billion PER. YEAR.
This is some twisted form of hardcore Conservative virtue signaling and is absolutely disgusting. As we spend billions stationing men and women away from their families to “stabilize” an area of the world we invaded using 9/11 as justification we neglect the people whose lives in America remain directly impacted by those events and see fit to let them die because roughly 0.167 % of the military budget is somehow the straw that would break the camel’s back.
