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

    His anger is misguided and wrong. Congress gave plenty of money($7.5 Billion in 2015) and it has been tapped by folks all over the nation wanting free treatment for any illness they can claim. The money was more than enough if it had been used for first responders,but it became a slush fund and doled out to folks in almost every state in the union. But this is how we govern today,by shame. Why be responsible with the tax payers money when you can just go shame congress and get more money added?

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

    Why just free healthcare? Why not just free everything? I mean the corporate billionaires can pay for it all (until they fuck off somewhere else that doesn't milk it that is).Yes socialism is great, until you run out of other people's money.People on the left these days are just race baiting snowflake parasites, thank fuck they don't breed.

    @Reel Fishing The is the genius of the daily show with John Steward as they took serious issue and added humor to make them entertaining to get people interested. But if you watch him in other show like Bill Maher, or when talking about 9/11 first responder he gets very serious.

    Right! I didnt know Jon Stewart had a serious side. Hands down the best speech I have heard in a long long time.

    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.

    Nobody cares on both sides of the spectrum. It's about money, money, money. Government is a joke and it always will be. Instead of blaming each other for the problems "Hey Republicans, you suck because you're greedy!" or "Hey Democrats, you're only benefiting a certain amount of people and not the whole entirety to benefit your agenda!"Instead of blaming each other for the problems, how about you stop dividing the country and come together to solve the problems that would benefit ...

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

    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.
