Huckabee Rips GOP Senators on 9/11 Health Bill

Friday, 17 Dec 2010 12:15 PM

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