Thousands of rescue and recovery workers have been sickend by toxic air at Ground Zero in New York. A billion bucks were set aside to help them.
So far, around 5,000 claims have been denied to 9/11 responders.
Instead, the New York Post has found that the fund's head honcho is paid $350,000 a year -- and gets a $20,000 health insurance package. Many of the people affected by the air problems have no health insurance at all.
$40 million has been spent on overhead for lawyers who's chief job is to challenge claims from responders. They charge $550 an hour for their dis-services. (NYP)
