    he didn`t lose it, he went up there knowing full well that he was angry, and that he was damn well gonna act like it. politics needs more actual opinions, more real rants, and less politeness and political correctness.

    He repeated himself way too much. Plus, I think this was just a publicity stunt, considering the yelling was not necessary to get his point across. Otherwise, I agree with him on the facts, so there`s not much else I can say about it.

    Republicans voted NO to provide healthcare for the 9/11 responders.

    "The Gentleman will sit! The Gentleman is correct in sitting!" Awesome.

    My only complaint? This post`s title had so much POTENTIAL. Like "Weiner Erupts on GOP," which I didn`t realize until I saw it in writing elsewhere.

    If it`s someone you like, they`re passionate. If you don`t like them, they`re psycho.

    We could do with a lot less screaming/crying/etc. in Congress and a hell of a lot more actual ideas.

    Hemtroll, republicans voted to not give 9/11 heroes (firemen, cleanup crew, etc) free health care. (Men and women who risked their lives saving others and the cleanup crews who had to breathe in toxic chemicals from the wreckage)

    I really don`t see how this is a NO vote.

    These are heroes who need our help. They are just like the soldiers who have returned injured and the many more who will return with psychological problems. They served our country; our country should serve them in return.

    The bill costs 5 billion. Why so much for something which should be supplementary to their current medicare. Really wouldn`t it be cheaper to send a cash reward? Plus while 9/11 was tragic and had great magnitude, there are other catastrophes aside from 9/11 where people take great personal risk trying to save people. In this event there were just more and once and more importantly to a politician everyone was watching like everyone watches him now.

    "@BigMordecai

    ...9-1-1 responders... not 9/11 responders..."

    No, it was a bill to compensate 9/11 emergency response personnel for the permanent damage they suffered as a result of prolonged exposure to the trade towers dust.

    "NEVER FORGET" Republicans love to remind us. Using 9/11 for political gain was the Republican forte, but pay for permanent injuries of the police and firemen who inhaled the dust that day? NO WAY!

    NOW Republicans care about spending. NOW when they are facing an election in November they put their foot down. Its OK to spend BILLIONS invading Iraq and Afghanistan, and saddle this country with long term debt by giving MASSIVE TAX CUTS TO RICH PEOPLE.

    BTW - What good did those tax cuts do? More deficit, less revenue, and the economy collapses in 2008. We could have used that revenue to PAY FOR THE REPUBLICAN WAR IN IRAQ.

    Republican solution today? TAX CUTS FOR RICH PEOPLE.

    Yes, I`m sympathetic to the 9/11 heroes, But $5 billion ?! It`s not going to cost that much to build the new WTC tower. I mean damn, Why so much ?

    Weiner played a calculated card of partisan politics. The Dems loaded the bill with a bunch of other pork spending that had nothing to do with the 9/11 responders and opted to require the bill to pass by a 2/3 vote instead of a simple majority, which WOULD have passed. But, they wanted a 2/3 vote that would have not allowed for revisions that would have removed pork out of the bill later. This is a Democratic move to score political points instead of just HELPING 9/ll responders with a simple bill that didn`t have all the tack-ons.

    Put it this way. If Dems can pass the Healthcare, Stimulus and the Financial reform bill with little or NO Republican votes, do you really think they couldn`t have passed this bill if they wanted to? Who`s really playing the games here? The Progressive Democrats... AGAIN!

    @jimistik82: No, Baelzar right. Check the Democrats poll numbers and public opinion numbers. Obama at 43%, Super Majority led Democratic Congress approval at a record low approval of 11%. Unemployment still hovering at +/- 10% nationally. Consumer confidence keeps dropping. Those numbers aren`t the recipe for success...

    Weiner has a point ("if you believe something is right, vote for it"), but he is playing partisan politics too. He seems to be unwilling to make compromises, which I have a problem with. Get the bill right, then pass it, don`t try and push it through by screaming.

    He is dead on. He is arguing for HEALTH CARE for rescue workers the helped in the cleanup after 9/11. Many of those workers are now afflicted with cancer and are dieing or have died as a result of the exposure to carcinogenic chemicals and the "gentleman" mentioned didn`t want to vote "no" on the healthcare issue and seem like an ass hat so he was trying to belabor the vote with procedural rhetoric. He needed to be called out and he got the verbal ass kicking he deserved.

    So all you want from people is to be passionate, and then they deserve to belong doing what they`re doing? Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Castro, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Unibomber were all pretty passionate too.

    To be clear, I`m not comparing Weiner to these guys (he truly is just a weiner), I`m just making a point about here rather poorly thought out statement on passion alway being alright whether you`re right or WRONG.

    @SilverThread & elhowell: Again read my first post. the Democrats didn`t NEED ANY Republican votes for this bill if they truly wanted it to pass. They just didn`t want extra controversial amendments to the bill to be stripped out later that didn`t relate to actually helping the 9/11 responders.

    That`s why they went with a 2/3 vote instead of a simple majority vote which they easily had enough votes for. It`s political gamesmanship at the expense of the worthy heroes who deserve help.

    I don`t care what any of you say against him. For once someone has grown enough balls to stand up for what`s right: Voting on what you believe in, for the people, not voting to get yourself ahead in life like most of them do. If you really look at why they`ve stalled and why they go back and forth like with health care reform they were only being so judgmental because insurance companies and doctors were bribing their way into the Senate, and instead of them telling them to f**k off they greedily would accept the cash and try to kill the bill.
    While not the same case, it`s obvious that the government is full of corrupt f**ks, it`s really good to know that at least one of them is going to do what he thinks is right for the people and not for himself.

    "Yes, I`m sympathetic to the 9/11 heroes, But $5 billion ?! It`s not going to cost that much to build the new WTC tower. I mean damn, Why so much ?"

    We`re talking a poo ton of people facing fatal illness, FUTURE illness, and payments to the families of the dead. One dead person is easily worth a million dollars. There are thousands affected - we`re not talking just people there on 9/11, we`re talking people who dug out, and cleaned up the wreckage.

    In order to create a self-sustaining fund that can pay the LIFETIME medical costs of thousands of affected individuals, you have to fund the trust with substantial principal to ensure that interest earned will cover the costs.

    Because of the failure of this bill, a court settlement involving this class of people has to be approved by 95% of the class, meaning ALL people in the class must split approximately $790 million dollars.

    If the settlement is not accepted, then each - and every - single - 9/11 claimant must settle his or her individual claim through a separate suit in court.

    SUMMARY OF WHAT WEINER IS SAYING IN POLITICAL SPEAK:

    Republicans, particularly in the Senate, on many matters, will pretend to bargain in good faith - offering amendments, seeking concessions, shaping the ultimate bill, which Democrats agree to in order to gain votes - and when the final bill shows up, full of Republican concessions, they vote AGAINST IT ANYWAY.

    Had they just said NO from the beginning, there would have been a vote, it would have failed, and we`d have moved on. Instead, they intentionally drag their feet, for the sake of impeding government, only to just vote NO anyways.

    DON`T BARGAIN IN BAD FAITH. DON`T BE COWARDS AND PLAY OUT THE CLOCK.

    goaliejerry: The democrats could`ve passed this bill with a simple majority, Just like they have every other bill passed so far this session. Instead they decided to circumvent the normal procedure that would allow Republicans to offer amendments to the bill. That meant they needed two thirds of the house vote to pass it.

    This was a political hatchet job from the start, Weiner`s fit on the house floor was all for show. The bill will be re-offered after the August break and this time amendments will be allowed and the bill will pass. This ploy by the democrats was a transparent as cellophane and an absolute shame that they are playing this cheap political game.

    goaliejerry: Also, The democrats haven`t bargained in good faith this entire session, To call `Bad Faith` now is hypocrisy of the highest order.

    The democrats have loaded every major bill this year with pork projects and spending, This one is no exception. This bill is to cover nearly a million people, According to the CBO estimate including over 500,000 residents of New York (That lived in the area on 9/11) that were not `responders`, `clean up crew`, or `heroes` in any sense of the word. It`s no wonder this bill is going to cost over $7 billion dollars.

    I`m all for paying the `heroes` health bills, Even though their own insurance should cover it. But covering every resident of Lower Manhattan is a bit much.

    Republicans hate the fact that the majority of America rejected their policies in the last election. They should be directing their anger at their own party instead of democrats because the party of "NO" will only progress so far.
    The party of "NO" has already become the party of yes to Wall Street, yes to BP and now it turns out they don`t care about 9/11 1st responders. We`ll see how all this plays out in November.

    O.o

    I never thought I would say that in my life...

    Seriously though, what he is railing against is unfortunately typical American politics.

    I like people who think they can make a difference and Weiner seems to believe that something different than this pathetic status quo is possible.

    I loved how this turned into a political debate, when clearly this guy was just mad because they were stalling instead of just voting no or yes.

    I`m in sales and I get that crap all the time, people are scared to say NO and that`s the truth.

    That is the same anger the people should have towards the republican party. They would rather hold us back as long as they can so they can pass the ides when they are the majority. If they lets the dems pass it and it works then it makes the dems look good and god forbid that happens republicans would rather see this country go down the toilet then let the other guy come up with a good idea. Kill them all.

    Republicans are the worst kind of terrorist. They try to destroy and rip this country apart any chance they get. republicans love to send us to war and kill our countrymen and then deny any kind of help from the government that the people can use. Complain about anything that is designed to take power from them and their corporate buddies and return it to the people it belongs. The people that actually keep this country running not you government types who do nothing but play puppet master and never get your hands dirty.

    madest: This had nothing to do with 9/11 responders, It was a gambit played by the democrats to shut the Republicans out of the process. They lost the game but got to falsely smear the Republicans anyways.

    Whether his approach was correct or not, this is the first politician with passion as well as common sense that I`ve ever seen. Politicians love to d*ck around in hopes that it goes on so long the other party just gives up.

    On another note, I need to watch CSPAN more often.

    I can agree with you in disagreeing with republicans, but I can`t agree with your argument. Firstly, I`m not sure who you`re referring to when you say "government types," because that brought about images of the secret service, NSA, CIA, FBI, every branch of military- All of the government employees who get their hands dirty, and have volunteered to do it. You do know our entire military is a volunteer military, don`t you? Now can you honestly say, with all your heart, that all "republicans" want to do is see this country fall apart? That`s ridiculous. They try their best like everyone else to do what they believe is right for this country. Deny help from government? You know the basic principal of a lot of those programs is to take money from people who earned it and give it to other people for free. Is that the kind of nation you want to live in, where all the money you make goes to people who often just refuse to get a job because they`re comfortable

    Now, how exactly are republicans terrorists? They try to get people to do what they want through fear? Well, no, they try to get a law passed and then two different houses composed of both democrats and republicans (Currently more republicans), and go from there. Now it`s your last comment that really put a stick in my wheel. How can you say, "Nice way to put your argument, just call the other guy and idiot. Sounds like more Republican Garbage to me..," when your entire argument was based off of calling republicans names and spewing out a bunch of emotionally charged drivel without actually saying anything of value?

    Hold on a second there, Let`s get some facts straight. The democrats hold a large majority of the house of representatives and a filibuster proof 60 (out of 100) seats in the senate.





    So get your facts straight, Before you stick your foot in your mouth again.

    And here`s the TRUTH:

    Weiner`s LIEING! It`s a trick, a trap and dirty politics.

    Listen to what Weiner`s responding to, then what he says.

    The truth is there`s nasty laws hidden in the bill and guess what? The Republicans don`t like it, so they`re VOTING NO! Just like Weiner says they should. All Weiner has is screaming. No truth, no morality and certianly not one shred of integrity.
    Just FYI.
