“You should be ashamed”: Jon Stewart lays into members of Congress for not reauthorizing 9/11 fund, skipping hearing

This is an effective impromptu speech, worth watching in full despite its length. He delivered it at a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, taking great offense at the lack of turnout among members. If 9/11 responders sick with cancer could turn out today to beg for health-care help, said Stewart, healthy members of the subcommittee should have turned out to listen. Democrat Steve Cohen pointed out that the number of empty chairs was misleading: The room was designed for hearings held by the full committee and this was a hearing of a much smaller subcommittee.
