Republicans stick it to Victims of Asbestos related illnesses, Cancer.

The cruel inhumane resistance to compensating victims of asbestos related illnesses by Republicans reached new heights with this:
ASBESTOS VICTIMS’ CLAIMS DATA: Voting 221 for and 199 against, the House on Nov. 13 passed a bill (HR 982) to require public disclosure on the Internet of information about claims filed by victims of asbestos-related illness such as lung cancer … including details on claimants but not their names or Social Security numbers.
While at the same time, believe it or not…:
Refused to amend HR 982 so that it also imposes disclosure requirements on companies that are defendants in asbestos litigation … defendants would have to publicly state the locations of their asbestos-laden products.
Remember these Wisconsin Republicans: Ryan, Sensenbrenner, Petri, Duffy, Ribble
