Jon Stewart to lawmakers for not showing up to 9/11 victims fund hearing: You should be ashamed of yourselves



Former The Daily Show host Jon Stewart shamed ?members of a House panel when only 5 lawmakers were seated in the rostrum to hear survivors of the September 11 terror attacks testify about the need to reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

“As I sit here today, I can’t help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is for the entire process that getting health care 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. Shameful. It’s an embarrassment to the country and a stain on this institution and you should be ashamed of yourselves, for those who aren’t here, but you won’t be because accountability doesn’t appear to be something that occurs in this chamber.”
