Jon Stewart returned last night to the Daily Show. He was there to ask for support in getting the Zadroga Act passed, which would provide funding for first responders who were injured on 9/11. Although the bill was scheduled to be included in the Transportation Bill, it was pulled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The bill has 67 senators and 270 Representatives pledged to support it, but Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan continue to block it. It has to be added to the Omnibus bill by Friday, or all funding will be cut.
