The New York Post has been doing some investigative journalism on the Ground Zero workers respiratory compensation settlement (more on expense filings).

All of the claims from the “heroic first responders” are false. They are not heroes, they are thieves. About $1,600,000 per life lost was paid by Ken Feinberg in behalf of our government. The generous amounts were based upon a sense of fairness and to avoid the economic devastation of rapacious law suits. Why then would government fight its “heores”? Because the claims do not make sense. The air at ground zero was constantly refreshed every few minutes by normal breezes. No sensors reporting to the EPA ever had positive readings for excess toxins. There was testimony of high readings noted by somebody, but the details were murky.

Charging of interest on loans is no problem. That Senators Schumer and Gillibrand supported the moronic suits is a real problem. They are incompetent!
