Jon StewartEfforts to bring health benefits to veterans in full swing Wednesday…he was there to watch President Biden Introduce a bill that guarantees this, and get a shout out from POTUS himself.
The former “Daily Show” host was one of several people in attendance at the White House to watch 46 people sign the PACT Act into law…you could tell he was thrilled to see it reach the finish line after an uphill battle. Prez certainly acknowledged his great work and said the bill wouldn’t be in front of him if it wasn’t for what he’s done.
JS accepted it all humbly and throughout the ceremony… also hugged the vet who was able to attend in person, brushed past politicians in the room, and got pats from pretty much everyone around. This is well deserved.
As we’ve seen over the past few weeks, Jon on the front line Getting U.S. senators to vote for PACT — even if many of them, mostly Republicans, fail terribly at a crucial point in the legislative process… pretty much ruins it all.
There’s been a lot of debate over the wording – including claims that the Dems are trying to play the budget game when it comes to long-term spending types – but Jon always sticks to his point, pointing out the misinformation left and being right in every way.
He spoke directly to reporters several times on Capitol Hill in a very generous manner…even had some shouting matches with trolls he believed were acting maliciously.
Of course, Jon also used social media creatively – and in the end, it paid off. Just to show… this guy knows how to get the job done in Washington when he makes up his mind.
The question is…will he pursue higher goals and possibly run for office? Time will tell…
