      Was it on purpose that this video was 9 minutes and 11 seconds?

        Bravo, Mr. Stewart, bravo. You are as much a hero as those for whom you spoke.

          As a european who is probably alive today because of American currage and the fight for free will and democracy I endorse the umbrella of freedom that you provide. This heering is a disgrase to the ladder and it is unfathomable why any of this allowed to happend - it is FUBAR.
          Goodspeed to all of the free world and hoping whenever shit hits the fan you’ll be there for us.

                  The Gettysburg Address of our time. I am a good public speaker, but I would have needed at least a half hour to say what Jon did far more eloquently, and movingly in 9 minutes. Just as Lincoln encapsulated the whole message about the civil war in a very short speech.

                    I’m neither American nor an American citizen. But If I was in this situation I would have hunted down each and everyone of the absent congressperson and punched them in their faces and weak stomachs. This felt me in a different way. Polititians live extravagant lives but they do little to nothing to deserve it. While the hardworking American gets ripped and promised in exchange for votes and empty promises.

                      Don't let the left vs. the right show divide you. We are all one. 9/11 was a massive lie. It was an attack on us by traitors to our country that live in our country. Please seek REAL justice for these families and victims. There is overwhelming evidence of a conspiracy check out Corbett Report on his website and on YT, check out Architects and Engineers for 911 truth AE911truth.org

                                  Every single member of that committee who, after listening to Jon speak, didn't applaud, and had a look of almost disgust on their face, needs to be remembered for those actions....I don't care how they voted on the bill, the looks on their faces tells you exactly what they really think....those individuals make me sick....

                                        In 20 years they need to amend textbooks to include Jon Stewart and this speech. A true man of character. He recognizes a terrible injustice against the brave first responders of 9/11 and stands up for what is right. Bravo Jon Stewart, you are a great man.

                                          They shouldn't be called first responders; they should be called liquidators. They did what they had to do and have a shorter lifespan because of it.

                                                  The US government treats the 9/11 First Responders with the same casual disregard as they did with the veteran's of Vietnam, most who became suicidal, drug addicted, and homeless. Today Middle East war veteran's are committing suicide to the tune of 22 soldiers a day. Does anyone see a pattern here??

This take time but we have to start the processes right away.

                                                          Okay I'm totally watching this and they're watching the camera movement and they're all putting their eyes on it so far this is the beginning of this statement and it's straight up a political action I believe 9/11 is a terrible Day in the United States history but I'm not seeing much other than pandering to a camera so far. Okay I don't know enough about the bill that they're trying to put up but like I said it's a complete political video and I don't care for misleading political videos when they don't put all the facts Ford so yeah I complete down vote for me and the sad part is I actually go out and fight fires in real life and put my life on the line all the time and I can't even trust this video of being real so I've lost all my respect for it and I have to get it a down vote!

He did it because it was the right thing to do. He looked those selfish, greedy lawmakers in the eye and fought tooth and nail for those first responders.

                                                                                  These men and women deserve everything and the country that they fought for makes excuses and gives them nothing. Our military and our first responders dont get squat in funding when they desperately need it but you can be damn sure that lawmakers want to put more money in the pockets of companies like Raytheon and Northrop Grumman and keep those CEOs rich, its disgusting.
