Jon Stewart returns to “The Daily Show” to shame Congress for ending 9/11 first responders benefits

No… a bearded Jon Stewart has not taken back “The Daily Show,” but he did join Trevor Noah on Monday evening to discuss something he’s been a huge advocate about.

Last week, Jon Stewart was on Capitol Hill irate because Congress never extended the post 9/11 benefits. In fact, there is still no permanent law to help the more than 33,000 people who are still getting 9/11 related medical care. Oddly enough, most members of the House and Senate are signed on to the bill, yet the bill hasn’t been passed by either chamber of Congress.

“Of course there was no reason not to renew it permanently, but they did not renew it anyway!” Stewart said of what is called the Zadroga Act. “It expired in September. Soon to be out of money, these first responders, many sick with cancers and pulmonary disease, had to travel at their expense to Washington, D.C., hundreds of times to plead for our government to do the right thing.”
