Tea Partiers are predictably berserk over this decision on Bush's part given today's date. We would remind them that Tea Party Republicans had a major role in reducing funds available for embassy security and that 2012 was not the only year that saw an attack on Americans on September 11. As New York Senator, Hillary Clinton fought hard for the families of those lost in the attacks on the twin towers as well as for health care for first responders who suffered devastating illnesses from working for many months on "the pile" which burned into mid-February 2002.Upcoming TV Airings:LIVE Today at 7pm (ET) on C-SPAN.org

(New York-WABC, December 18, 2006) (WABC) -- Senator Hillary Clinton is putting new pressure on the White House to address health concerns of ground zero workers.Senator Clinton says the program that monitors and treats 9/11 first responders and workers could run out of money by this summer.
She wants President Bush to put more money into the program when he presents his next budget.
"We are worried that the medical treatment that has begun, finally, after years of effort and many obstacles along the way will run out of money starting this summer," Clinton said, "so that the people who are finally being treated for the many symptoms of their chronic conditions due to 9/11 exposures will once again be left out in the cold."
Jeb Bush, a voice of reason in a party trembling on the brink of implosion, offered his rationale for choosing our girl for this high honor.
