9/11 Worker Health Care could have been funded if Fossella wanted

Mayor Bloomberg recently released the 2007 New York City Card, which gives lawmakers in DC an idea of the needs of the city in terms of financial funding. On that list of just 6 items is;

- 9 /11 Worker Health: The City is requesting $150 million in annual federal funding to ensure health treatment and monitoring for all individuals affected by the catastrophic 9/11 terrorist attacks.

While NY Senators and members of Congress fight to get this healthcare funding, we could have been funding a large portion of this cost by simply moving funding away from misguided Abstinence Only education funding that Rep. Vito Fossella has supported in the past to 9/11 worker health care needs.

Mr. Bloomberg, we know you have Fossella's ear if you want it. Why not ask him to stop pandering to the religious conservatives from DC and start worrying about the needs of our own New Yorkers.
