Guinta will be Held Accountable for Vote Against 9/11 Heroes

Rochester, NH—Congressman Frank Guinta thought he could get away with voting against the James Zadroga  9/11 Health and Compensation Act. But this was a brutal vote against our heroic firefighters, police, and others, and he will be held accountable in November for rejecting healthcare for our 9/11 heroes.

This critical legislation allowed our selfless 9/11 First Responders—our firefighters, police, and others—to receive lifetime healthcare benefits to treat their injuries and illnesses resulting from the terrorist attacks. Mr. Guinta said that he voted against the Omnibus and the money for our heroes because, in his own words, "they are merely inducements to vote for more federal bloat and debt."

“Carol Shea-Porter was proud to co-sponsor and help pass the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010. The Zadroga bill in both 2010 and 2015 was a moment when Democrats and Republicans were able to come together and make sure that our 9/11 heroes were put above politics,” said Shea-Porter spokeswoman Naomi Andrews. "Congressman Guinta put his political and ideological interests before our 9/11 heroes. Firefighters, police, and other First Responders now know they cannot trust Frank Guinta to represent them. They also know that Carol voted for that funding, and that she will continue to honor them and their sacrifices."
