  • Mr. Chris Lee Screwed New York Firefighters

    I am writing this note to let you know that New York Congressman Chris Lee left 9-11-01 rescuers on the floor above. Mr Lee was the only member from New York to VOTE NO on HR847 the health bill for responders. Mr. Lee promised 9/11/01 first responders that he would co-sponsor this bill, then last minute he backed out. Please pass this onto your members. Many members of the FDNY are get sick and dying.This Bill HR847 would have help to pay the growing doctor and hospital bills rolling in. Please call Mr. Lee and let him know he let us down.

    ALL GAVE SOME BUT SOME GAVE ALL
    NEVER FORGET 9-11-01

        According the records, Lee is one of 115 co-sponsors of HR847. He voted in favor of recommitting the bill for further amendments. The fact that he was not in favor of the form of the bill that passed is, by itself, not damning.

        What additional amendment was he trying to get into the bill he co-sponsored before it passed?

            Not according to the clerk of the house's website. Which version is supposed to be believed? He is unquestionably a co-sponsor of the bill. The only question is what changes he was still trying to make in the bill before it passed. Do you know what those changes might have been?

              Wow, i was so hoping this thread was going to be something different based on the title.

              Didn't we have this discussion already about HR847? Didn't we decide that it was a bad move on all parties to put it forth in the way in which they did?

                BAD for who???? the bill passed with NO ADDED AMENDMENTS. It's sad to think lee spun this. he did sponser the bill the 1st time and voted no. then it came up again and he tried to delay the vote. this bill as stands will help people who are sick from 9/11/01. some people have forgotten the 1st responders.
                I am disappointed by the actions of congressman lee of NEW YORK! again i repeat , congessman lee from NEW YORK. the vary same New York that suffered in 2001 and continues to suffer today. why did this 1st term member of congress ask to "recommit" on the vote in attempt to kill HR 847? lee has refused over and over again to work with the 9/11 community. call and ask him, email him to see what bs answer you get this time and we will compare the answers. there is none but politics. every congressman went for this bill from New York both republican and democrats.

                  Nobody is talking about any "spin." We're talking about procedural facts on record. Based on the congressional reocrd, Lee appears to have strongly supported the bill overall -- he's a co-sponsor, after all. It appears that he had reservations about the form of the bill that ultimatley passed. He didn't "block" the bill, he was still trying to revise specific parts of the bill.

                  How do we know that the version of the bill that he wanted wouldn't have been better than the one that passed? If you're going to claim that he "screwed" anyone you really ought to be able to answer that question.

                      In other words, you can't answer the question. You don't even know what revisions Lee was proposing but, despite the fact that he's a co-sponsor of the bill, you're still trying to blackball him over it.

                      Sorry, but your (lack) of an argument to support your position voids your credibility on this one.

                        Where is the funding for this bill coming from? We're broke. Any great thing we want to do must be funded with $ coming out of some other program (cut BS stuff) or by borrowing from the Chicoms.

                          Lee Explains His ‘No’ Vote On Zadroga
                          Republican Rep. Chris Lee was the only member of the New York congressional delegation to vote “no” on the Zadroga bill that passed the House earlier today.

                          (His fellow GOPer, Long Island Rep. Peter King, was a sponsor of the bill and voted “yes” after taking it on the chin from Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner when members of his conference refused to provide sufficient support to reach the majority’s two-thirds requirement back in July).

                          Lee issued the following statement to explain his decision:

                          “The men and women who ran into the towers on 9/11 and who spent countless hours aiding the recovery at Ground Zero are true American heroes. I’m an original cosponsor of the 9/11 health bill and believe we should support our first responders who sacrificed so much on 9/11 and in the time that followed.”

                          “In a $3.5 trillion budget, there were a number of ways that Speaker Pelosi could have chosen to pay for health care for these heroes without the bill’s massive, job-killing tax hikes that will send U.S. jobs overseas.”

                          “I offered an alternative plan to remove these job-killing tax hikes and finance the bill with spending cuts. It is unwise and unnecessary to pit 9/11 heroes against 15 million out-of-work Americans, and we could have and should have protected both in this bill.”


                          The James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act" is a bill that is funded by closing tax loopholes on foreign companies that do business in the United States and NO NOT CURRENTLY PAY UNITED STATES TAXES . No U.S. worker will loose their job over this bill as many members of the republican party have stated. No US taxpayer funded monies will be used to pay for "The James Zadroga Health & Compensation Act". It is very clear that Mr. Lee did not read HR 847 before moving to have it killed in the House of Representatives. He instead chose to vote for HR 847 in a partisan fashion. The second time HR 847 was voted on in late September, needy 1st responders watched as 1 more democrat and 5 more Republicans voted their conscience and changed their vote from no in late July to yes the second time around. HR 847 passed with the bi-partisan support of 17 republican members of congress. Mr. Lee was not 1 of these republican members during either vote. Both parties failed the 1st responders during the many years and the many chances this bill had to move out of the house and on the desk of the president. However Mr. Lee of NEW YORK played partisan politics over the 1st responders. The time to argue about the value or worth of the lives of 9/11 1st responders is not now. Now is the time to pass this bill and give dying 9/11 1st responders the medical help they deserve. Bottom-line is this, Mr. Lee was the only member of the NY delegation to vote no for HR 847. Mr. Lee's actions left members of the FDNY on the floor above to burn. We hope these actions are not repeated in theUS Senate.
                          Have a good day

                            I do have a question. I'm confused about the intent of this bill. Maybe you could clear it up. I don't want this to turn into a rant, or a diatribe, or and argument. I just need some clarification.

                            As far as I know the official 'First Responders' that answered the call for help are covered by their insurance provided by their professional departments. FNDY, NYPD, The Port Authority, ect.

                            The question i have is this. Who is this bill intended to help? The people that showed up outside of the official mutual aid? I just don't understand how individual 'First Responders' aren't covered by their responding agencies? Shouldn't the individual responders be taking the issue up with the departments/agencies they are associated with, rather than the government?

                            Please help me understand, as I truly want to know the intent of this bill.
