Anthony Weiner Goes Awesomely Insane Over 9/11 Bill Vote-Down (Video)
Earlier today we mentioned that a bill that would have given up to $7.4 billion in aid to people sickened by toxins resulting from the World Trade Center attacks failed to win the necessary two-thirds majority to pass (the final tally was 255 for, 159 against). Republicans ended up defeating the bill due to "procedural concerns." New York's Anthony Weiner was not happy at this "cowardly view," and told everyone so, winning friends all over New York and making Congress seem pretty damn exciting.
Wow. The "gentleman," by the way, is allegedly New York Rep. Peter King.
