Day 6 — My odyssey to find reasons to vote for Hillary Clinton rather than against Donald Trump.
After 9/11, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency assured the public that the air at Ground Zero was safe to breathe. (We all know that wasn’t true.)
Within 48 hours of the towers falling, Hillary introduced a bill—signed into law—that helped first responders get the benefits they earned easier and faster. Then she pressured the EPA to launch a new task force and led congressional hearings until the EPA admitted the air hadn’t been safe and include that fact in the possible health issues facing first responders.
As someone who was in downtown NY on 9/11, and for many days after, it didn’t take a genius to know that air wasn’t safe. Weirdly, it took a junior NY Senator to fix it.
