“As  I sit here today, I can’t help but think, what an incredible metaphor  this room is for the entire process that getting health care and  benefits for 9/11 first responders has come to,” Stewart said during a  House Judiciary Committee hearing on reauthorizing the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.
