President Trump welcomed 9/11 first responders at the White house Monday morning as he signed into law a bill to extend the funding for the 9/11 victim compensation Fund.
The law ensures that the forces who suffer from diseases, such as lung disease and cancer, to help as a result of their experiences at the sites of the 2001 terrorist attacks, continue to benefit from state assistance. The Fund will now continue to get his money through the whole life, the battered survivors.
“They inspire the whole of humanity,” Trump said of the first contacts in the presence, before he signed on to the stage, where the bill.
Comedian Jon Stewart of the bill to national attention was when he brought the survivors to Congress, and in tears, a legislator insults failed to act.
The Senate passed the bill by the overwhelming bipartisan support with a majority vote of 97-2. Only Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, voted against it. They proposed changes to the piece list, which were rejected.
Paul argues that the draft bill “irresponsible”, because the advocates ” push for a sunset clause, which would guarantee funding without a specific dollar amount for the next seven decades. Stewart complained, as usual, suffering the victims had to come back to Washington to keep all of the couple of years to lobby Congress to, the provision of assistance. Without the new law, the Fund was expected to be exhausted until December 2020.
