  • >> Bret: WE TOLD YOU A FEW

  • MINUTES AGO A BILL TO ENSURE

  • FUNDING FOR THE HEALTH CARE OF

  • 9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS IS BEING

  • BLOCKED IN THE SENATE BY TWO

  • REPUBLICANS, SENATORS RAND PAUL

  • AND MIKE LEE.

  • SENATOR PAUL TOOK TO TO THE L

  • SENATOR PAUL TOOK TO TO THE O

  • SENATOR PAUL TOOK TO TO THE R

  • TODAY SAYING THE SPENDING NEEDS

  • TO BE OFFSET BY CUTS ELSEWHERE.

  • WE ARE GOING TO GET REACTION NOW

  • FROM JON STEWART, COMEDIAN,

  • ACTIVIST, IS BEEN THE LEADING

  • ACTIVIST FOR THIS FUND AND ONE

  • OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS, JOHN

  • FIELD.

  • THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

  • THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE.

  • JUST WANT TO GET YOUR REACTION

  • FIRST TO THIS NEWS TODAY AND

  • KIND OF WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.

  • >> WELL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING

  • US, AND YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN

  • GENEROUS WITH YOUR TIME AT FOX,

  • TELLING OUR STORY, SO THANK YOU.

  • LISTEN, WHERE LOTS OF FOREST BY

  • SENATOR LEE AND PAUL.

  • THIS IS THEIR M.O.

  • WE KIND OF HAD AN IDEA THAT THIS

  • WOULD HAPPEN BUT IF YOU WATCH

  • YESTERDAY ONE SOUTH DAKOTA

  • MAJORITY WHIP, UNANIMOUS --

  • SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND DID

  • HER UNANIMOUS CONSENT AND

  • MITCH McCONNELL, HE GAVE US

  • HIS WORD AND HE'S BEEN SINCERE

  • ABOUT THAT AND WERE CONFIDENT

  • WHEN THE BUILD WAS ON THE FLOOR

  • FOR A STRAIGHT UP-AND-DOWN VOTE,

  • SENATOR LEE AND SENATOR PAUL ARE

  • GOING TO LOSE AND ANY AMENDMENT

  • THEY TRY TO MAKE -- WE HAVE 73

  • COSPONSORS.

  • WE HAVE A TWO-THIRDS MAJORITY

  • AND I DON'T THINK ANYTHING MAY

  • HAVE TO OFFER COLD WATER.

  • BUT LET'S GET TO -- RAND PAUL

  • GOT $580,000 FOR A BROKEN RIBS.

  • IF WE GET $250,000 FOR CANCER.

  • TOM WILSON, HAD HIS TONGUE

  • REMOVED AND HIS NECK

  • RECONSTRUCTED, GETS $250,000.

  • HE'LL PROBABLY DIE FROM CANCER.

  • LUIS ALVAREZ WHO DIED FROM

  • CANCER, HE GOT $250,000.

  • SO I THINK BOTH OF THE SENATORS,

  • THE PEOPLE FROM THE STATE OF

  • KENTUCKY AND THE PEOPLE FROM THE

  • STATE OF UTAH DESERVE BETTER,

  • AND I THINK THEY LIKE HUMANITY.

  • >> Bret: THIS IS WHAT

  • "THE WASHINGTON POST" SAYS ABOUT

  • THIS FUND.

  • IT SAYS THE FUND PROVIDES MONEY

  • TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN

  • CONTRACTING DISEASES LINKED TO

  • TOXICS DEBRIS IN THE AFTERMATH

  • OF THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACKS,

  • WHICH WE KNOW.

  • UNDER CURRENT LAW THE FUND IS

  • SCHEDULED TO STOP TAKING CLAIMS

  • IN DECEMBER 2020.

  • IF THE NEW LEGISLATION WOULD

  • EXTEND THE PROGRAM FOR SEVEN

  • DECADES AT AN ESTIMATED COST OF

  • 10.2 BILLION FOR THE FIRST

  • DECADE.

  • HER CELL SENATOR PAUL SAID IT ON

  • THE FLOOR TODAY.

  • >> AND A NEW SPENDING THAT WE

  • ARE APPROACHING, AND A NEW

  • PROGRAM IT'S GOING TO HAVE THE

  • LONGEVITY OF 70, 80 YEARS,

  • SHOULD BE OFFSET BY CUTTING

  • SPENDING LESS LESS VALUABLE.

  • WE NEED TO AT THE VERY LEAST

  • HAVE THIS DEBATE.

  • I WILL BE OFFERING UP AN

  • AMENDMENT IF THIS BILL SHOULD

  • COME TO THE FLOOR BUT UNTIL THEN

  • I WILL OBJECT.

  • >> Bret: JON STEWART, YOUR

  • REACTION TO THAT >> IS

  • ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS AND YOU

  • PARDON ME IF I'M NOT IMPRESSED

  • IN ANY WAY BY RAND PAUL'S FISCAL

  • RESPONSIBILITY VIRTUE SIGNALING.

  • RAND PAUL PRESENTED TISSUE PAPER

  • AVOIDANCE OF THE $1.5 TRILLION

  • TAX CUT THAT ADDED ON PARTS OF

  • BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO OUR

  • DEFICIT AND NOW HE STANDS UP AT

  • THE LAST MINUTE AFTER 15 YEARS

  • OF BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS FROM

  • THE 9/11 COMMUNITY TO SAY THAT

  • IT'S ALL OVER NOW, NOW WE ARE

  • GOING TO BALANCE THE BUDGET ON

  • THE BACKS OF THE 9/11

  • FIRST RESPONDER COMMUNITY.

  • BRET, THIS IS ABOUT WHAT KIND OF

  • SOCIETY WE HAVE.

  • AT SOME POINT, WE HAVE TO STAND

  • UP FOR THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

  • ALWAYS STOOD UP FOR US.

  • AND AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME,

  • MAYBE CANNOT STAND UP FOR

  • THEMSELVES DUE TO THEIR

  • ILLNESSES AND THEIR INJURIES,

  • AND WHAT RAND PAUL DID TODAY IN

  • THE SENATE WAS OUTRAGEOUS.

  • HE IS A GUY THAT PUT US IN

  • HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS

  • OF DEBT.

  • IT WAS THE 51ST VOTE ON THAT

  • CUT, AND NOW HE'S GOING TO TELL

  • US THAT A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR

  • OVER TEN YEARS IS JUST TOO MUCH

  • FOR US TO HANDLE?

  • YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOMETHING THEY

  • HAVE NO TROUBLE PUTTING ON THE

  • CREDIT CARD, BUT SOMEHOW WHEN IT

  • COMES TO THE 9/11

  • FIRST RESPONDER COMMUNITY, THE

  • COPS, THE FIREFIGHTERS, THE

  • CONSTRUCTION WORKERS, THE

  • VOLUNTEERS, THE SURVIVORS, ALL

  • OF A SUDDEN, WITH GOT TO GO

  • THROUGH THIS.

  • THIS PROGRAM HAS ALREADY BEEN

  • RUNNING FOR FIVE YEARS.

  • NO FRAUD, IT WAS TESTIFIED WHEN

  • WE WENT IN FRONT OF CONGRESS.

  • THE SPECIAL PAYMASTER TESTIFIED,

  • NO FRAUD, NO WASTE, NO ABUSE.

  • MIKE LEE, WE MET IN HIS OFFICE

  • FIVE YEARS AGO.

  • HE LOOKED US IN THE EYE, HE

  • LOOKED RAY PFEIFFER IN THE EYE,

  • WHO UNFORTUNATELY IS NO LONGER

  • WITH US, AND SAID HE WAS GOING

  • TO LOOK INTO IT.

  • HE IS THE REASON THAT WE HAD TO

  • GO BACK AGAIN FOR THIS NEW ONE

  • AND NOW HE WANTS TO PUT ANOTHER

  • CAP ON IT THAT'S GOING TO MAKE

  • JOHN FEAL AND ALL HIS OTHER

  • TENACIOUS YET ILL

  • FIRST RESPONDERS DRAG THEMSELVES

  • BACK TO WASHINGTON TO PUT THEIR

  • HATS IN THEIR HANDS AND BEG FOR

  • SOMETHING THAT THIS COUNTRY

  • SHOULD HAVE DONE 14 YEARS AGO.

  • IT'S AN ABOMINATION.

  • >> Bret: WE ASKED BOTH

  • SENATORS FOR A STATEMENT.

  • SENATOR PAUL'S OFFICE SENT A

  • STATEMENT SAYING "SENATOR PAUL

  • IS NOT BLOCKING ANYTHING.

  • HE'S SIMPLY SEEKING TO PAY FOR

  • IT AS WITH ANY BELT,

  • SENATOR PAUL ALWAYS BELIEVES IT

  • NEEDS TO BE PAID FOR.

  • SENATOR PAUL IS SIMPLY OFFERING

  • AN AMENDMENT TO PAY FOR THIS

  • LEGISLATION."

  • AFTER ALL THAT YOU'VE SAID HERE,

  • AND ATTENDING THE FUNERAL OF

  • YOUR COLLEAGUE LUIS ALVAREZ,

  • JOHN FEAL, THAT'S NOT WHERE YOU

  • ARE.

  • >> NO, LISTEN, SENATOR PAUL AND

  • SENATOR LEE ARE OPPORTUNISTS,

  • THEY ARE BOTTOM FEEDERS IN ANY

  • STATEMENT THAT THEY COME OUT

  • WITH DOESN'T HOLD WATER WITH ME.

  • YOU CAN'T CHERRY PICK AND CHOOSE

  • WHEN YOU WANT TO BE A

  • CONSERVATIVE FISCAL HAWK.

  • IF THAT'S JUST INSULTING TO OUR

  • INTELLIGENCE AND SHAME ON THEM.

  • THEY LACK HUMANITY, THEY LACK

  • LEADERSHIP, AND THEY JUST DO

  • THIS BECAUSE -- LISTEN,

  • TED CRUZ, RAND PAUL, MIKE LEE,

  • EVEN THEIR OWN COLLEAGUES DON'T

  • LIKE THEM.

  • WE DON'T LIKE THEM.

  • WHEN WE GET THIS BILL PASSED, WE

  • BEAT THEM AGAIN AND WE ARE GOING

  • TO WALK OUT AND WE'RE GOING TO

  • HOLD OUR CHINS UP HIGH AND OUR

  • CHESTS OUT AND WE'RE GOING TO

  • SAY WE BEAT RAND PAUL AND

  • MIKE LEE.

  • WE MET MIKE LEE A COUPLE MONTHS

  • AGO, HIS STAFF.

  • THEY PROMISED, THEY SWORE UP AND

  • DOWN BUT THEY WERE NOT GOING TO

  • GET IN THE WAY OF THIS.

  • MIKE LEE, YOU'RE A LIAR.

  • >> THE OTHER THING TOO, BRET, TO

  • A MEMBER, WHAT POINT THIS IS

  • EITHER NECESSARY OR IT'S NOT.

  • EVERYONE AGREES THAT IT'S

  • NECESSARY.

  • WE ARE EITHER DOING THIS --

  • THERE'S EITHER A NEED OR IT'S

  • NOT.

  • IF YOUR BUDGETARY PRIORITIES ARE

  • EITHER MOVED BY A MORAL COMPASS

  • WHERE THEY ARE NOT.

  • AND THIS IS AN OUTRAGEOUS PLACE

  • FOR THEM TO TAKE A STAND AND

  • BECAUSE, ONCE AGAIN, PAIN AND

  • HEARTACHE AND SUFFERING WITHIN A

  • COMMUNITY THAT HAS FELT SO MUCH

  • OF THAT OVER THESE PAST FEW

  • YEARS AND IS GOING TO BE

  • SUFFERING MORE.

  • >> BRET, WHAT PEOPLE SEE AS A

  • MAJOR DEFEAT TODAY IS A MINOR

  • SETBACK AND IT'S JUST GOING TO

  • PROPEL US TO A BIGGER WIN AND WE

  • ARE CONFIDENT THAT AFTER MEETING

  • WITH MITCH McCONNELL, THAT

  • HE'S KEPT HIS WORD AND HE'S

  • WORKING DILIGENTLY TO GET THIS

  • BILL ON THE FLOOR FOR A STRAIGHT

  • UP-AND-DOWN VOTE.

  • THAT'S WHAT WE ALWAYS WANTED.

  • THE UNANIMOUS CONSENT WAS EASY,

  • BUT WE WANT A STRAIGHT

  • UP-AND-DOWN VOTE BECAUSE WE

  • DIDN'T GET IT IN 2010, WE DIDN'T

  • GET IT IN 2015 AND WE WANT TO

  • WALK OUT WATCHING THE FRUITION

  • OF OUR WORK COME TO AN END.

  • >> IT'S THE SAME SONG AND DANCE

  • THEY'VE GIVEN US FOR 14 YEARS

  • NOW.

  • THIS PROGRAM HAS PROVEN ITSELF.

  • IT HAS SHOWN ITSELF TO BE

  • FAITHFUL TO THE STATUTE.

  • IT HAS SHOWN ITSELF TO BE FAIR

  • TO THE CLAIMANT AND SHOWN ITSELF

  • TO BE RESPECTABLE TO THE

  • TAXPAYERS, AND THAT'S ALL WE CAN

  • ASK OF A PROGRAM, BUT MOST

  • IMPORTANTLY, IT BRINGS JUST A

  • MOMENT'S PEACE TO A COMMUNITY

  • THAT HAS SUFFERED AND CONTINUES

  • TO SUFFER.

  • >> Bret: JON STEWART AND JOHN
