Tuesday, 21 Dec 2010 05:23 PM

Count former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani among the Republicans who are riled at their brethren in Congress for holding up legislation to provide health benefits to first responders to 9/11. Giuliani, who was mayor that fateful day in 2001, says Congress must act now to help the heroes, The Hill reports.

Rudy Giuliani, 9/11, first responders, GOP"This should not be seen as a Democratic or Republican issue. It shouldn't even been seen as a fiscal issue. It's a matter of morality, of obligation," Giuliani tells New York's Fox TV affiliate.

"I tried to see if it can get done before they got to the tax bill. I thought the strategy of holding things up was a good one, but I don't think this is one of the things you should be holding up. Now that that's been passed, this should just happen.”
