Trump Signs 9/11 Victim Compensation Bill

by Christopher Paslay

President Trumps signs yet another piece of bipartisan legislation, continuing to find common ground among a divided Congress. 

President Trump, the most admired man in America other than Barack Obama, continues to be one of the most productive presidents in modern American history.  This morning he signed a bill that provides relief to victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  As reported by the Daily Caller:  

H.R.1327, or the “Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act,” provides full funding for the 9/11 victim compensation fund through 2092. The compensation fund provides for medical care and losses experienced by victims and first responders stemming from the deadly attacks, and is estimated to cost over $10 billion over the next ten years.

The president signed the bipartisan legislation during a special event in the Rose Garden, featuring the families of the bill’s namesakes, including their children, widows, parents, and siblings.

“Today, we come together as one nation to support our Sept. 11 heroes,” Trump said. “They answered terror with the emotional strength of true American warriors.”

President Trump’s ability to work with Congress and get things done is quite impressive, despite the fact the American press fails to adequately cover most of his achievements.  

According to the Pew Research Center, “Between its inception in January 2017 and its final day on Jan. 3, the GOP-led 115th Congress enacted 442 public laws, the most since the 110th Congress (2007-09).” And most notably, almost 70 percent of these bills were bipartisan, the most in 20 years.
