Health Care / Socioculture

Remember this whenever conservatives use 9/11 as a sanctimonious touchstone in deriding the ‘socialist’ Democrats.

“The network of health centers providing free medical tests and treatment to 58,000 people exposed to World Trade Center dust faces a less certain future if Congress doesn’t pass legislation aimed at helping victims of 9/11’s toxic legacy.
“Senate Republicans last week blocked action on a bill appropriating up to $3.2 billion for medical programs caring for people who fell ill after breathing in ash and pulverized building materials at ground zero.
“The programs, which offer medical care free of charge, are especially valuable to ground zero cleanup workers who don’t have private health insurance or whose health plans don’t cover the full cost of their care.”
