WASHINGTON -- Congress is finally responding.

Over 14 years after terrorists hijacked planes to strike the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, lawmakers on Capitol Hill cut a deal Tuesday to provide effectively permanent health care for the thousands of Americans who are now sick and dying because they came forward to help that day.

The poor treatment of 9/11 first responders started before the toxic dust had settled, with federal officials declaring the air safe to breathe and the mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, putting progress with the cleanup ahead of worker safety.

In the aftermath of 9/11, then-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was often referred to as “America’s mayor.” So you might call the police and firefighters who courageously rushed to the scene that day “America’s first responders.”
