    Jon Stewart might be the comedian, but Congress is the joke.

    Jon Stewart is a perfect example of a person who has a voice using it for the betterment of others. Much respect for a good and decent man.

    I don't care what political party you go for. This man is 100% American fighting for Americans.

    This was fantastic. The next Super Bowl halftime show should just be Jon Stewart humiliating Congress for 30 minutes.

    Government officials should be fired and replaced if they continuously fail to show up to their jobs as ANY other citizen would.
    I agree with Jon Stewart here. He’s not 100% correct, he’s 1000% correct. 9/11 first responders are heroes and the nation owes them the world.

    The 2.8K down votes are all Congress, lobbyists, or health insurance workers

    We need term limits for Congress and the Senate.

    When a non-partisan issue, that is supported by more than 90% of the American public, can't be resolved in 18 years: the system is truly broken.

    First responders: Extraordinary people who did what they did because they care about people MORE than their job. and Politicians: People who are afraid to do anything because they care more about their job than our people.

    imagine if these people didn't have an advocate as articulate and moving as Jon Stewart. Imagine all the other people who don't.

    I think congress forgets too easily that a plane was headed for the Capitol on 9/11 and they were in session...

    They should all have free healthcare for the rest of their lives.
    This shouldn't even be a discussion.

    Isn't this what most Veterans go through as well?
    For the rest of your lives you'll spend fighting to live.
    Just wrong
    What has happened to America?

    Respect is earned, not bought. Jon Stewart has earned it 100x over—what a man.
