Jon Stewart blasts Congress’ selfish sequester fix

I’d written the other day¬†about how Congress passed a “fix” to the sequester to get rid of the long lines at airports – ostensibly because congressmen fly everywhere, all the time, so long lines at the airport affect them directly. Jon Stewart has now weighed in as well.

The problem is that while Congress is helping itself, they’re doing nothing to help, for example, thousands of senior Medicare patients who just lost their chemotherapy because of the sequester cuts.
