Senator John McWeasal McCain who nonstop postures as the man who stands up for those who have fought for the United States of America has been conspicuously absent in the fight to provide medical benefits to the brave police and firemen who answered the call of duty on 9/11. In fact, when approached by T.J. Gilmate who risked life on that memorable day, the brave Senator from Arizona walked away. McWeasal was being asked to support the Zadroga 9/11 Responder Bill which would handle medical costs for those who became ill by dashing into gas and fumes in order to save lives. Senator McWeasal has opposed rights for gay and lesbian soldiers even though thousands have been killed or wounded risking their lives in battle. Who the hell is this supposed “hero” of the Vietnam War? He influences many senators and by coming out to support rights for gays and lesbians he would have shown courage in the face of losing a few votes.
Gays and Lesbians finally received their right to be who they are in the military. Senator McWeasal did not help them. Now, the question is whether Senator McWeasal will stand UP for the brave men and women who became ill in the service of their nation on 9/11?
