Sick 9/11 workers demand more federal dollars for health carePosted: Updated:
Emergency workers, volunteers and union workers now sick after helping at the World Trade Center are demanding more federal funding for their health care in the future.
Workers from 9/11 rallied at Ground Zero Wednesday saying the $25 million President Bush promised for health monitoring programs is not enough. They say it will take billions of dollars in health care for those sick and dying from exposure to the toxic air.
Many of the 30,000 people who have become ill are from Westchester and Hudson Valley. Yonkers resident Jimmy Nolan, who is a construction worker, says he has seen his health deteriorate after working at Ground Zero.
