Trump officials admit diverting 9/11 treatment funds was wrong, but stall returning $4M

“@CMSGov has been made aware of recent reports regarding the unacceptable use of NYC’s 9/11 funds as a means to repay debt, and is taking swift action to correct this issue. …The law requires that we transfer any debt owed to taxpayers to the Treasury for collection, but by no means should New York’s delinquency come at the expense of our 9/11 heroes. I’ve directed my team to work w/ NYC & @USTreasury to find a long-term solution, immediately.” Seema Verma tweeted this message last weekend, reports Michael McAuliff, for the NY Daily News.

This promise must be kept. The money should never have been taken, but should immediately be restored.

When will those sick from their selfless work after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 be treated with common respect?
