I have never read any direct links between the workers and cancers. I have been told countless times that there is one.

I know lots of guys who were there working, I don't know a one that is sick.

and, what is it that they are requesting?

Let me also say that I have long regarded firefighters as the true American hero's. Day in and day out. I have TOTAL respect for them. More than I do for any other segment of society.

I need more info to have an opinion but how can anyone have a strong opinion without knowing the details? Or am I the only one that missed it??? Could be.

Sounds like a political football????????
You might want to check out Health effects arising from the September 11 attacks - Wikipedia which lists lung issues and cancer, along with further links to the original studies.

Over 55,000 individuals enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Registry, separated by rescue and/or recovery workers and non-rescue and/or recovery workers, were observed from 2003 or 2004 to December 31, 2008. The findings showed the overall incidence of all cancers among rescue and/or recovery workers was not significantly elevated, compared to non-rescue and/or recovery workers.

"To date, 75 recovery workers at ground zero have been diagnosed with blood cell cancers that a half-dozen top doctors and epidemiologists have confirmed as having been likely caused by that exposure."

Seems to back my contention that there is not much of a link cancer to 911.

We have 75 maybes.

This is a bill to continue funding healthcare costs for 9/11 first responders. This is to CONTINUE something we've already been doing. How the hell does congress get away with stonewalling this bill? Shame on every single fucking one of them.

"Your indifference costs these people their most valuable commodity. Time."
Same way they have been getting away with not payuing Veterans who were splashed with Agent Orange in VietNam. People don't give a shit so neither do they.
