ON CAPITOL HILL: Jon Stewart, a longtime advocate for 9/11 responders, scolded Congress for failing to ensure that a victims' compensation fund set up after the 9/11 attacks never runs out of money. Stewart angrily called out lawmakers for failing to attend a hearing on a bill to ensure the fund can pay benefits for the next 70 years. He pointed to rows of empty seats at a House Judiciary Committee hearing room, saying the sparse attendance by lawmakers was "an embarrassment to the country and a stain on this institution."

Not a supporter of this person but he did the RIGHT thing here... how un-American not to support this bill.

Time for term limits in the house and senate

What is John Stewart on? The dude is aging at 10 times the normal rate. You need to come to the light John...your life of craziness isnโ€™t conducive to health!
