9/11 Responders Push for Zadroga Act Extension

June 12, 2015  | 

Dozens of Sept. 11 first responders were on Capitol Hill Thursday in an effort to get the Zadroga Act extended, reports WLNY.

Retired FDNY firefighter Ray Pfeifer, of Hicksville, was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cancer and the disease has spread to his bones. He continues to fight and credits the 9/11 James Zadroga Act for helping him to do so. The law provides 9/11 first responders who are sick with federal aid for their health care needs. Pfeifer says he would not be able to afford necessary treatments if the act were to expire.

Some of Pfeifer's fellow first responders testified in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. They called for the law's extension, and painted a dire view of the future if Congress allows the legislation to expire in September 2016.

Extension??? Hell give it to them. Everyone of these people should be taken care of by the Feds. We give welfare checks, food stamps, Charlie cards, cell phones, eduction and unemployment checks to anyone even Illegals (Undocumented workers). Money goes to foreign countries that hate us by the billions and use our tax dollars to kill us. They need an extension? NO! We need better politicians.
