Dear Mayor Bloomberg,



In your statement regarding the Zadroga Bill today you stated ““Today’s bi-partisan vote by the House of Representatives is a significant moment in a fight we have waged for years. Today’s vote acknowledges that the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks were an attack on America, and addressing its health impacts is a national duty. This bill recognizes that the country should be there for the tens of thousands of responders who were there for us on 9/11”



I find it difficult to understand how you could make such a statement at the same time that your administration through the WTC Captive Insurance Corp has denied almost every claim from people ill as a result of 9/11.



The Federal Government gave New York City $1 Billion to aid those ill as a result of 9/11



The WTC Captive Insurance Corp a Registered Not For Profit that has spent over $400 Million in Federal Funds and distributed less than 1% of the funds to satisfy health claims.



They have paid their administrators millions in salaries and have regularly paid attorneys $500 an hour to fight the claims of our sick 9/11 responders.



I do agree with you that the bill recognizes that the country should be there for the tens of thousands of responders who were there for us on 9/11 but my question is why your administration hasn’t been there as well.
