Jon Stewart's latest impassioned plea to help 9/11 first responders sickened by the attack is giving the issue new urgency in Washington. Dozens of police, firefighters and others joined Stewart at an emotional Capitol Hill hearing Tuesday where the former "Daily Show" host blasted Congress for allowing a fund that was set up to pay for their health care run short of money.
