You may love Jon Stewart, you may not. However, you could not help but be emotional watching his testimonial plea to reach the members of Congress yesterday in regards to benefits continuing for the 9/11 first responders and their families. Stewart has been championing their cause for some time.

Yesterday, he gave a speech in front of a nearly empty Congress. Nearly. Empty. That in itself is very sad, and as he says, “shameful.”  The 9/11 first responders benefits are coming to an end next year.

Check out Jon Stewart from yesterday, his words are stinging and appropriate.
