911 fund

'This has never been dealt with compassionately by [McConnell]...He has always held out until the very last minute and only then, under intense lobbying and public shaming, has he even deigned to move on it.'
'It's an embarrassment to the country and a stain on this institution and you should be ashamed of yourselves...but you won't be because accountability doesn't appear to be something that occurs in this chamber.'
'To be quite frank, it's embarrassing that it hasn't been done already.'
The federal fund that compensates 9/11 victims will be slashing payouts to sick first responders, relatives of the dead, and other individuals who suffered because of the work they did near Ground Zero.
