WATCH: Jon Stewart says Congress 'should be ashamed' over inaction on helping 9/11 first responders
Jon Stewart, the former host of "The Daily Show," appeared before a House committee in Washington, D.C., to again advocate for health benefits for 9/11 first responders. At the start of his 10-minute statement, Stewart said Tuesday's hearing was an "incredible metaphor." "Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress." Stewart said the lack of urgency to help these responders was a "stain" on Congress. "Your indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity: time," he said. "It's the one thing they're running out of."

WATCH: NYPD veteran on 69th round of chemo makes plea to Congress for 9/11 victims fund

465 Views 145 Comments

In a simple, but passionate testimony, veteran and retired NYPD detective Luis Alvarez urged lawmakers to reauthorize funding for victims of the 9/11 attacks. “This fund is not a ticket to paradise,” said Alvarez, who was scheduled to begin his 69th round of chemotherapy the next day. “It is there to provide for our families when we can’t. Nothing more." The fund provides money to any person who suffered physical harm or the families or those who were killed in the Sept. 11 attacks or the subsequent debris removal efforts. Alvarez told the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties that, “You all said you would never forget. Well, I’m here to make sure that you don’t.” If the fund is not renewed, it will expire in 2020 and could run out of money before then.
