Need A Bill Passed? Just Call Jon Stewart

If you really want a bill to get passed in Congress, it apparently helps to have Jon Stewart on your side.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have both pledged Congress will reauthorize a bill that provides health care to 9/11 first responders before the end of the year.
For weeks, Stewart and first responders have been passionately and very publicly demanding Congress move on the bill after some portions expired this year. Funding for the bill is expected to run out next summer. (Video via The Huffington Post)
