Former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee, a likely candidate for president again in 2012, is angry at GOP senators for holding up the Zadroga bill, which would give millions of dollars of medical assistance to 9/11 first responders. "It should be passed," Huckabee said on Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show," The Hill reports. "Every Republican should vote for this bill."

huckabee, 9/11, health, billSenate Republicans have delayed passage of the bill due to concern over how to pay for it. Democrats are to blame too for making the bill "part of a political battle," he says. "If it needs two [senators to pass], there ought to be 25, 35, 45 Republicans voting for it."

Huckabee says he will make a formal decision on whether to launch a 2012 presidential bid “later rather than sooner."
