“It’s not a bitch,” Stewart said. “America’s heroes, who fought in our wars, were sweating outside their homes…fighting all kinds of diseases, while these damn mothers are sitting in air conditioning, cut off from every one of them.

I am used to all this. But I am not used to cruelty.”

He continued: “[Republicans] They haven’t seen a war that they wouldn’t sign up for, and they haven’t met a veteran that they wouldn’t want to spoil. Now they say, “Well, it’ll be done, maybe after we get back from our summer vacation, maybe during the lame duck.” Because they are at the time of the senate…. Senate times are ridiculous. These bastards live up to 200 years. They are turtles. They live forever and they never lose their job and they never lose their benefits and they never lose all those things. Good, [veterans] They are not on senate time, they are on human time… It’s an embarrassment to the Senate, the country, the founders, and everything they claim to hold dear. And if this is America first, then America is damned.”
