    YES! he is completely right, he was yelling at the GOP for filibustering a bill that would provide the hero's that where the first responders to the 9/11 attacks medicare for being affected by the toxins. He is showing frustration that has been building for a long time. He was a rockstar.



  2. 2

    he is amazing!



  3. 3

    This man is my new hero!

    Shame on all the Republicans and Democrats who voted against this bill. And the Republican's excuse that they made it too hard with a 2/3 majority. Our country was ATTACKED! The head of the EPA said the air was safe and first responders did what needed to be done…it should have been a given that everyone would vote for it. Disgusting to put partisan politics ahead of 9/11 responders.

    We need more like Weiner!



  4. 4

    He is always amazing!



  5. 5

    Republicans voted NO on a bill that would provide 9/11 heroes with health care. I would get pissed too.



  6. 6

    What a hot bitch! That was amazing - dude's wife was probably waiting for him in nothing but a g-string when he got home….

    Tjakkaaaaa!!
    What a fool.



  8. 8

    GOOD FOR HIM !!!!!!

    STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN ALWAYS



  9. 9

    Good for him, and shame on those who voted against it in a fit of bipartisanship.



  10. 10

    Weiner Dude is one of Congress's biggest morons. He is the laughing stock of Washington DC. Typical liberal idiot.



  11. 11

    It's not just republicans that voted no. The democrats have the majority, so some of them must have voted no as well.



  12. 12

    Once again your not telling the whole story. This bill was full of non 9/11 healthcare items, such as abortion funding, etc. Weiner is a jackass



  13. 13

    Once again your not telling the whole story. This bill was full of non 9/11 healthcare items, such as abortion funding, etc. Weiner is a jackass and he knows it. He was just playing this up for the local news to look like a hero. The democrats control congress and don't need any republican votes to pass crap, so he should be ashamed of hs democratic colleagues.



  14. 14

    Fuck yes!!!!!!!! Get em' buddy! About damn time someone standed up to our fucking greedy ass government!!



  15. 15

    Just watched it again and it still gives me goosebumps. You're right about it being like a scene from a movie. An amazing fucking scene. But its even more amazing bc its fucking real! Fucking amazingly real!!



  16. 16

    id vote for him. Hes got balls and makes sense.



  17. 17

    he scares me…



  18. 18

    This was an "act" for political reasons. Would be nice if you guys would take time to find out both sides. The Dems loaded the bill with pork, just like they loaded the health care bill with other nonrelated items. (Did u know that the health care bill included a government takeover of student financial aid by the obama admin?What does that have to do with health care?). Of course the repubs support aid for 911 families; it's the the other unrelated stuff the dems stuck in that they want out. Americans open your eyes and learn both sides!



  19. 19

    PEErez, you are such an ass!! do you know anything about whats in that bill?? they (meaning democrats) have put pervisions in there that have NOTHING TO DO with healtcare for 911 workers which is why the republicans are filibustering!! stuff for funding abortions and whatnot. i don't blame the republicans for wanting to stop it, its wasting OUR tax money! ugh, i can't wait til november to get some of these unethical money grubbers out of office.



  20. 20

    ym ms . E-mail me this week?



  21. 21

    What a great last name for a politician!



  22. 22

    This guy is a loud mouthed pompous jerk! I bet he spits when he talks.



  23. 23

    More like a scene straight out of a 3rd world country. Anthony Whiner was just playing it up. Typical attention whore tactics of the left wing. Why didn't he bitch at his fellow Dems who didn't support the bill? Also, the Dems have been in power since 2006. If they wanted to pass this shit then they could've done what they did with healthcare and rammed it thru. Fuck Tony Whiner.



  24. 24

    The US needs this kind of passion. You go!!!!



  25. 25

    the fact that anyone would block a bill that would provide funding to those that responded to 9/11 attacks is a damn shame…this man should not be a representative, let alone apart of the judicial process. great job mr. weiner, its your passion that makes me feel like some our diplomacy is working.



  26. 26

    omg! GOD BLESS HIM!!!!!! WOW! He is amazing!!!! Now these are the kinds of people we should have in out government!!! GO DEMOCRATS!!! GO DEMOCRATS!!!! He is completely right!!



  27. 27

    Finally, a bigger douche than Mario. Read the fucking thing before you declare him a hero. He is one of the reasons this country is so screwed up



  28. 28

    I gues this guy's parents never taught him that just yelling loud does not make your opinions right. I can't imagine how awful it would to be married to a guy like this.

  29. @v@ says – reply to this


    29

    I understand his feelings, his being from New York. It should be about doing the right thing. That said, he could have penned a speech so moving, pointed and statesmanlike that he could have had a Churchill moment, appealing to their intellect AND their conscience and heartstrings. Sometimes the message gets lost in the anger. This will do, though.



  30. 30

    Brilliant!



  31. 31

    WASHINGTON — A bill that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to people sickened by World Trade Center dust fell short in the House on Thursday, raising the possibility that the bulk of compensation for the ill will come from a legal settlement hammered out in the federal courts.
    The bill would have provided free health care and compensation payments to 9/11 rescue and recovery workers who fell ill after working in the trade center ruins.
    It failed to win the needed two-thirds majority, 255-159. The vote was largely along party lines, with 12 Republicans joining Democrats supporting the measure.

    My hat is off to Mr. Weiner. It is about time people exposed the Republicans for the hateful people they really are. They are not about helping the middle class or people in need, only the rich and the corporations. The same corporations who have out sourced our jobs to other countries. Then they tell the mindless sheep it's the illegal immigrants who are to blame for no jobs, and of course the uninformed, racist lemmings believe it all. SHAMEFUL! Wake up before it's too late, if it isn't already.



  32. 32

    Re: Destroza1 – Destroza1 has the most intelligent post concerning this subject. We should all know that bills covertly hold within them other issues that need to be voted upon. The content of the whole bill needs to be considered, not just one outstanding aspect.



  33. 33

    Whoa!! Did I just see a democrat with a backbone?! Awesome!!!!



  34. 34

    Re: Wenchtits – The point is, somebody finally had the balls to call these politicians out on their bullshit! Whether your views are in line or in opposition to Wiener, you got to respect the man for acting out of passion and not opportunity.



  35. 35

    Good for him- this is the kind of passion I want to expect from our political leaders. At least he's passionate about what he believes in and wants to do something about it.



  36. 36

    This senator is a hero for not only his state, the country but also for the democrats. We need more PASSION and people not being afraid to stand up for what's right. He did not flip out, I don't understand why his passion is flipping out. The "gentleman" has earned my applause!



  37. 37

    wow. Amazing! Thank god for people like him who will stand up for what is right.

    And yet the government gives free healthcare, welfare, housing, schooling, and police protection to the illegal immigrants…..amazing.



  40. 40

    Bless him! Republicans voted NO on a bill that would provide 9/11 heroes with health care. I would get pissed too.



  41. 41

    do not believe some of the distorted lies certain people are posting here about the bill. you can go to opencongress.org and read about the bill. it is called the-
    James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act.



  42. 42

    I only wish all elected officials were this passionate, for standing up for us little people.



  43. 43

    they waited 9 years in hopes all the first responders would be dead by then,this is your government people, they do not care about you. btw 911 WAS AN INSIDE JOB!



  44. 44

    I'm a Democrat, but there's more to this story than Perez reports. There were other items tied to this bill (i.e. immigration reform)- it wasn't just about 9/11 funding. There will be another vote on this in September, and hopefully both parties can cut the CRAP and make this a vote on one subject that NO ONE disbutes- funding healthcare for the heroes of 9/11.



  45. 45

    I hope whoever the "gentleman" is drops dead in the next moment or so.



  46. 46

    Re: Destroza1 – #12 Once again, you're (as in you are = you're) a fucking illiterate idiot. If you're going to make a point, do so with grammatical correctness and a brain which you obviously haven't nurtured.



  47. 47

    The Democrats DO NOT NEED the Republicans to pass anything. The people on this site are morons. You comment and unfortunately probably vote and don't have a clue. It was full of pork. Pull the crap out, make it about 911 and it will pass. WE ARE BROKE AS A NATION YOU IDIOTS!!!!!!! They need to stop adding the extras like money is no object.



  48. 48

    Somebody forgot to take his Adderall that morning.



  49. 49

    No idea what he was screaming about but I'm totally turned on now.



  50. 50

    Re: URnot1stdumbass – No, you're the fucking idiot. There are not enough votes in the senate to pass anything without one or two GOP votes. If you could count and if you had half a fucking brain and if you knew anything about how our government worked, you'd realize that.

    And this particular bell needed 3/4 voting which meant a lot of GOPers would have had to vote for it. They wouldn't because they don't want to give Democrats any type of success, which means they don't want to give US anything either. They make $175,000 a year to say no to everything that might possibly move this country forward.



  51. 51

    Re: Mushu Baby – That's horrible. This country is a mess.



  52. 52

    It was all a show, this idiot had all the votes he needed before his axademy award performance. Its amazing to me how few of your fans Perez pick up a paper or even read the news. This is whats wrong with this country a bunch of dumbasses voting for the cool guy, the guy with zero resume and look where we are. Weiner HAD THE VOTES. It was an act.



  53. 53

    Re: KDIZZLL – Annnnd pink unicorns visit you at night, great…please tell me you dont vote. Yikes.



  54. 54

    I am from NY and Weiner is a moron. You idiots Cheering him on and MARIO of course, DO NOT KNOW THE FULL STORY. 1st, like a few posters said, a bunch of pork was added on. 2nd, AND MOST IMPORTANT, AFTER THE PORK CRAP WAS ADDED ON, he CALLED FOR A ROLE VOTE. That requires a 3/4 APPROVAL, as opposed to just a regular vote which needed like a majority. Which the democrats have. Peter King,NY a republican co wrote this bill, WITH OTHERS THEN WEINER. Weiner had NOTHING TO DO WITH WRITING THIS BILL. Adding on, I don't know. The Question is, WHY DID THE DEMOCRATS CALL FOR A ROLE VOTE? WHY DID THE DEMOCRATS WANT THIS BILL VOTED DOWN???????



  55. 55

    Why is there even politics on this blog? Perez doesn't understand them, half the people here have no clue what's going on. Just dumb.

    The Republicans want the same care for the 9/11 responders. They just hate the other part of the bill that the Democrats wrapped around the medical care allowance. Weiner is getting upset beause the Republicans want the bill stripped down to just health care, not the other BS in the bill. Way to slant it, Mario. Go post more Lady Gaga pics, or something.



  56. 56

    Re: talgrem – they should be funding abortions. less basterd children in the world, less children born into horrible lives and less children gettin thrown in garbage bins when there born



  57. 57

    Re: byte me – no you're country is so screwed up because of the high incidence of right wing, bigot, nut jobs who only care about themselves.



  58. 58

    Re: justtfax – Agreed, its like discussing politics with 8th graders.



  59. 59

    GOOD FOR HIM!!! This was an incredibly worthy cause; both his passion and his anger were well deserved. For those saying otherwise, I say find me a bill in this or any other congress that doesn't get bogged down with some unnecessary nonsense–IT CAN'T BE DONE! What the Republicans did here was to refuse AMERICAN HEROES that risked their life and their health for their country and neighbors, and who now need our help. The Republicans that did this are utterly shameful and hopefully middle-America won't forget that come November.



  60. 60

    Good for him!!



  61. 61

    This idiot is a representative of the American People and his behavior is inexcusable. The US Consitution has procedures for resolving disagreements and his yelling and screaming like a spoiled child is unacceptable. This is just one example of why the demoncats will be voted out in November.



  62. 62

    Alas, if he and the Obamessiah only cared this much about stopping the ones who attacked us on 9/11.



  63. 63

    Wonder if he gets this riled up over them trying to build a 13-story mosque at Ground Zero?



  64. 64

    hero! disgusting they sit around in their suits and defend illegal mexicans that kill innocent people that interfere with their drug transactions, while heroes are suffering and cant even count on reliable health care. And we give free healthcare to people who dont even have jobs



  65. 65

    Now that's some C-Span that won't put you to sleep!



  66. 66

    God! I hate Republicans.

    All of them are morons who make up "facts" that they heard from Limpballs and Blech!

    Lemmings.



  67. 67

    Re: Michmasterflex – YES! the government should fund abortions. WE ALL KNOW WHAT RACES GET THE MOST ABORTIONS!



  68. 68

    Is it just me or does this idiot remind you of Barney Fife with roid rage?



  69. 69

    GOOD FOR HIM! He's just like Alan Grayson from Florida - fiery and RIGHT! I'm tired of republicans dragging us back to the stone age and grinding all help, progress, and common sense to a halt. TIME TO STEP OVER THE TRASH!



  70. 70

    More of our government needs to have passion like this. Good for him it's about time someone tells these idiots to shut up, sit down, listen, and finally get their jobs done right!!!



  71. 71

    Pathetic jew!



  72. 72

    Re: Hate Low Class People – Spoken like a typical member of the GOP I see. I was just curious how many right wing assholes are still on this site, and I see there are a few hold outs.



  73. 73

    This is funny but I've seen worse in the British and Canadian Parliament (or whatever they call it). I just moved to Canada from the States and I am always surprised how they scream at each other here in Canada. Even the Prime Minister gets involved.

    But this guy is passionate about the issue.



  74. 74

    Re: justtfax – Typical bullshit spin you always give.



  75. 75

    I say this with great pride " I love Weiner "



  76. 76

    let's first find out WHY the Republicans voted no. Could it be the bill did more damage than good? Weiner is passionate about money that he's missing out on! Those Dems are so twisted and corrupt, you can't trust anything they do!



  77. 77

    YOU GO!! THATS RIGHT FIGHT! ALL OF YOU SIT AN COMMENT BUT MAYBE YOU FORGET THAT DAY WHEN THOSE PLANES CAME DOWN THOSE PPL WHO CAME RISKED THERE LIVES. CANT EVEN WORK NOW. WE CAN GIVE THEM SUM HEALTH CARE. BUT TERRORISTS WHO COME HERE GET BETTER HEALTH CARE. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THAT AN OUR GOVERMENT. WE CANT PROVIDE CARE FOR PPL WHO RISK THERE LIVES THAT DAY. WE KEEP THINKING ABOUT THE BOTTOM DOLLAR WHILE ((AMERICAN)) PPL SUFFER.



  78. 78

    I've never been prouder of a Democrat or to be a Democrat! There are rallies around the country protesting the treatment of a bunch of wetback illegals infringing on America yet not one rally protesting the Republicans refusal to provide care to REAL LEGAL AMERICANS that risked their lives and are losing their lives due to health problems from trying to help Americans after 9/11? Where are all these bleeding hearts that care so much about a bunch of Mexicans yet they don't give a shit about people that are LEGAL citizens of this country?



  79. 79

    Re: hmmmph36 – … isn't American Idol on or Dancing with the Stars? go back to watching your television PROGRAMMING you brainwashed idiot.



  80. 80

    He just through a temper tantrum for show. He knows damn good and well that the Democrats are in control of congress and if they really wanted to pass this they could. The Republicans do not have enough members to stop anything. There was not enough support on the Democrats side to pass this. Not to mention it has all kinds of stuff in this bill that had nothing to do with the 911 responders. If this had been a bill just for the responders only it would have pass by all of Democrats and Republican with a 100 per cent vote. Stop shoving a bunch of crap in a bill and vote for just the what the bill is names, instead of trying to sneak other garbage in it and you would see a lot of stuff pass that should. Weiner is just that a big fat Weiner……



  81. 81

    oooh his wife is lucky..what a brave and noble man



  82. 82

    Being a new yorker, and having a family member who survived the world trade center attacks, I could not be prouder for this man for standing up for those who bravely fought to save the lives of others with selflessness and courage. Sure the man partook in sensational politics, but atleast he is defending our hero's and not the interests of politicians. And calling him a liberal left winger for righting for LEGAL residents of the united states who risked their lives to save others doesn't help your argument at all -_-



  83. 83

    I never heard of this guy before, but he *rocks*.



  84. 84

    Yeah boy, go Brooklyn on their asses!



  85. 85

    Holy crap. YES. I don't know if that was the proper venue to behave like that, but he's absolutely correct. The Republican Party has gone so far up its own ass, worried more about its own interests and lobbyists instead of the good of the American people, that they're almost unrecognizable at this point. I believe in a lot of typically Republican views, but seeing the way the party is behaving nowadays has caused me to lose faith in their ability to properly govern.



  86. 86

    this is exactly why nothing gets done in washington, all the politicians are a bunch of babies that can't have a real discussion. both parties have flaws, so having the parties attack each other about them is not going to do any good



  87. 87

    Re: John In Ely – funny. you could say the exact same about democrats. how about we just all agree on 'politicians', since it doesn't seem that party membership has an affect on if they are corrupt or not



  88. 88

    This is how politicians should be. Instead of acting like sheep who flock to the largest dollar sign, they should be standing up for what they believe in and fighting for our rights.



  89. 89

    FAT BOY PEREZ NEEDS A BITCH SLAP UPSIDE THE HEAD EXACTLY IN THAT MANNER!!!!!!!!!!!!! DOUCHE BAG NEVER LISTENS AND WRITES UP SHIT IN THIS PSEUDO BLOG RATHER THAN TELL THE TRUTH BY ACTUALLY DOING RESEARCH. WUT A MORON.



  90. 90

    You gotta love the Almighty United States of America, the country that is "the best in the world" yet they don't give two shits about the men and women who were the first responders to 911. Pathetic.



  91. 91

    He's an idiot. The Democrats do not need any Republican votes to get it passed. They could have easily passed it on their own. So obviously the Dems voted no too. This was just a political game for that angry wiener.

    The Republicans kept telling them to bring it on the house floor and he wouldn't. Do your homework and see who was woking on that bill. The man he was screaming at who is a republican helped write the bill.

    The Dems are always pulling some bull shit now.



  92. 92


  93. 93

    Alan Grayson/Anthony Weiner for democratic ticket in 2016. What passion, bravo! More of that in our government please, some balls! Yes yes yes.



  94. 94

    It was a theatrical performance intended to produce a certain result. The trick is to appear to support a popular measure that no one could possibly oppose, but at the same time to pass a very unpopular measure that is slyly attached to the bill, which is not mentioned at all, and usually somebody somewhere is going to make money from this secondary measure, or gain some other advantage. The reputation of Congress (if there is any left) should not be degraded by cheesy maneuvers.



  95. 95

    I don't want to get into what is wrong and what is right in my thinking. I just want to say that I am, I think, a republican (economically yes, for a LOT of reasons, but in a lot of other ways NO, not excluding their view on Christianity, which is repulsive, god loves ALL his children, gay straight or otherwise, and homosexuality is NOT a lifestyle choice, any more than heterosexuality is) but at least he got passionate and stood up for his voters. Well, maybe he was just standing for a lobbyist group, but he stood UP. And BTW, I loved Ronald Reagan.



  96. 96

    Oh my LORD- Dramatic, much? Please, Mr. Weiner. Your "anger" over this bill not passing is ridiculous. Where is your fire, your anger and disgust at the CRAP that is crammed in that bill along with necessary medical care for the 9/11 first responders? Are you more pissed about a bill, laden with perhaps some of YOUR pork, not passing, or are you truly pissed that the 9/11 responders wont get additional assistance? If you are so angry and willing to do what you can to help, why not present legislation that has no riders/pork/crap hidden in the bill? And to the rest of you blind idiots, do your due diligence and look up this bill. READ IT. See for yourself what was in it. I personally would do what I could for the responders, but not at the expense of cheapening the effort by cramming the bill full of pork. Again, the Dems have the majority and this bill could have passed without any help from the Republicans. I applaud the Dems that read through the bill and saw it for what it was{ - a valiant effort to do right that was marred by garbage.
    Mr. Weiner - How is that "cracker jack" leftist whining organization working out for YOU now?



  97. 97

    Re: Wenchtits – okay, you need 2/3 votes to pass this bill, democrats only have a 58% majority.



  98. 98

    Re: lilnino – fuck yeah!



  99. 99

    Re: catsmeow – fuck yeah!



  100. 100

    I WOULD LOVE FOR THIS MAN TO SLAM THAT PASSION INTO ME…AGAINST A PILLAR…a la Sharon Stone in "SLIVER"
