The Time is NOW to Support Our 9/11 Heroes

9 Years is Long Enough

September 15th, 2010

West Lawn of U.S. Capitol

10:00 am

Followed by lobbying Congressional offices

9 years ago, this country witnessed the worst terrorist attack in our history. What we also witnessed was brave men & women rushing into harms way to ensure the safety of NYC & our beloved country. These brave souls, uniformed & non-uniformed, were promised help by the federal government, and after 9 years they are still waiting. In July, our bill, H.R. 847, was voted down by a procedure that splintered an already partisan House of Representatives. We are now calling on both sides of the aisle in Congress to vote like Americans and not with their political affiliations.

On September 15th at the U.S. Capitol, we will demand a floor date in September & a regular up & down rules vote on H.R. 847.

Unions, advocates, elected officials and others will be joined by 9/11 responders, volunteers, survivors, widows, and those affected by 9/11 and its aftermath.

Pass H.R. 847, the James Zadroga Health & Compensation Act.

Anything less is unacceptable.

Bus Itinerary; contact Anne Marie Baumann 516 551 0986, ar1cb2@aol.com

Glen Klein 516 655 1478, trublueny@aol.com

Anthony Flammia 631 445 3944, wamflame@aol.com
