Comedian John Stewart tore into a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee for its low attendance at a hearing to discuss reauthorizing the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

Stewart, who has long been an advocate for first responders who suffer health issues, spoke to the committee Tuesday and began by pointing out the attendance level of the committee members.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As I sit here today, I can’t help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is for the entire process that getting healthcare and benefits for 9/11 first responders has come to,” Stewart said. “Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.”

“Sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak to no one. Shameful. It’s an embarrassment to the country, and it is a stain on this institution,” he said. “Accountability doesn’t appear to be something that occurs in this chamber.”

“I’m sorry if I sound angry and undiplomatic, but I am angry and you should be too,” Stewart said. “Certainly 9/11 first responders shouldn’t have to decide whether to live or to have a place to live.”

    Jon Stewart doesn’t realize his beloved Democrats won’t show up? Seriously?

    Wow, that was great. Jon spoke from the heart and was near tears. Seriously both sides of the aisle need to be embarrassed and ashamed, but tragically will do little or nothing. This is a perfect example of why there should be term limits.
