Support the James Zadroga 9/11 First Responders Bill
On September 11, 2001 the United States suffered from a horrible terrorist attack. Thankfully the heroism of hundreds of first responders in New York City saved countless lives. Sadly, many of the volunteers who helped at ground zero now suffer significant chronic health problems because of the service they did.
Every day, first responders including fire fighters and policemen are suffering from horrible cancers and heart conditions and losing their jobs. They saved lives and are repaid by losing their jobs and their medical coverage.
The Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act aims to right these wrongs by covering medical expenses of the volunteers at ground zero. This bill has already been passed by the United States House of Representatives. It is now up to the Senate to pass the bill so our heroes can get the treatments they need and deserve.
At this time, the Senate is not even voting on this bill. Sign this petition so we can tell the United States Senate that they have waited too long. It is time to pass the bill and help our fellow Americans.
