Disgusted by the Republican Party 9/11 Responders Deserve Better

I'm getting pretty disgusted by the Republican party. 9/11 Responders deserve better. What is the Republican payment for helping others at the detriment of your own health? Legislation to pay for the treatment of diseases and debilitating effects for those responders is still being blocked by the Republicans.
For shame, this is the second time this year Republicans, the party using 9/11 like a cheap prostitute for political campaigns, speeches and sound bites, blocked the legislation by moving to filibuster the bill in the Senate. WTF? If there is any legislation that both parties should fully support, it is this legislation. I'm dumbfounded as to why the Republicans are blocking it? They have really not given any reason. They got the tax cuts they wanted for the wealthiest of Americans. I would think this is political suicide in the conservative bible belt.
Senator Mitch McConnel (R-Kentucky) might do well to remember that if he wants to remain a senator, yet alone minority leader.
