Reader comment on: 9/11 Health Bill

I would rather help a larger number of people to ensure that nobody who is truly deserving gets shortchanged, then make the requirements stringent to the point where deserving victims who sacrificed their health during the days after 9/11 have to battle through onerous red tape to see a doctor. The arguments presented here remind me of how the right gets up in arms about voter fraud. Perhaps a handful of people actually commit voter fraud, but by the remedy to fix this problem presents far greater problems than the issue itself.
And why do people care how long a bill is anyway? Have you seen the formatting of a bill - there are five words to a page!
