Reid: Republicans Putting CEOs Ahead Of 9/11 Heroes Speaks Volumes About Their Priorities

Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today after Senate Republicans blocked passage of a bill to provide adequate health care to first responders who developed illnesses responding to 9/11:
“Republicans denied adequate health care to the heroes who developed illnesses from rushing into burning buildings on 9/11. Yet they will stop at nothing to give tax breaks to millionaires and CEOs, even though they will explode our deficit and fail to create jobs. That tells you everything you need to know about their priorities.”
