...and never got an answer.

Why did the GOP block the First Responders Bill?

Even when it was,

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> “stand alone <u>and funded by closing a tax loophole on "off shore" businesses*.</u>” </div></div>

And especially after, our Dear Leader- THE DECIDER- GW BUSH made sure those First Responders were lied to.

Flashback people.

WASHINGTON -- <span style='font-size: 20pt'>At the <u>White House's direction</u>,</span> <span style='font-size: 26pt'>the Environmental Protection Agency gave New Yorkers<u> misleading assurances</u> that there was <u>no health risk </u>from the debris-laden air after the World Trade Center collapse, according to an internal inquiry.</span>

President Bush's senior environmental adviser yesterday defended the White House involvement, saying it was <u>justified by national security.</u>

The White House "convinced EPA to add reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones" by having the National Security Council control EPA communications after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, according to a report issued late Thursday by EPA Inspector General Nikki Tinsley.

"When EPA made a Sept. 18 announcement that the air was 'safe' to breathe, the agency did not have sufficient data and analyses to make the statement," the report says, adding that the EPA had yet to adequately monitor air quality for contaminants such as PCBs, soot and dioxin.

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>In all, the EPA issued five news releases within 10 days of the attacks and four more by the end of 2001 <span style="color: #CC0000">reassuring the public about air quality. But it wasn't until June 2002 that the EPA determined that air quality had returned to pre-Sept. 11 levels -- well after respiratory ailments and other problems began to surface in hundreds of workers cleaning dusty offices and apartments.</span></span>

The day after the attacks, former EPA Deputy Administrator Linda Fisher's chief of staff e-mailed senior EPA officials to say that <span style='font-size: 23pt'>"all statements to the media should be cleared" first by the National Security Council,</span> which is Bush's main forum for discussing national security and foreign policy matters with his senior aides and Cabinet, the inspector general's report says.

Approval from the NSC, the report says, was arranged through the White House Council on Environmental Quality, which "influenced, through the collaboration process, the information that EPA communicated to the public through its early press releases when it convinced EPA <span style='font-size: 26pt'>to add reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones.</span>"</div></div> link (http://www.seattlepi.com/national/136350_epa23.html)

And it was answered ... and you'll ask it again ... and that won't change the fact that it was a poison pill bill set up tp fail so that the democrooks could use it to pimp their naive followers.

This is where you ask the question again.

It hasn't been answered. I will tell you the answer.

This bill was PAID FOR by closing a tax loophole for FOREIGN businesses! The GOP were against it.


Another flashback.

Did I call it or what?

This is where you ask again ... and again ... and again ... until January.

At that point you can blame the R's for passing a clean bill.
