Foxx Votes Against Zadroga Bill

The U.S. House passed the final compromise version of the 9/11 first responders health-care bill 206-60. Many Republican members didn't even show up for the vote, including Patrick McHenry and Walter Jones, but Congresswoman Virginia Foxx was for sure on hand to cast her usual "no" vote.

Foxx, to 9/11 first responders dealing with some of the rarest and nastiest cancers: "You have my permission to die, bee-yotches."

How good to see that smarter representatives prevailed, It was signed into law by the President.
