N.Y. congressman explodes in furious tirade

WASHINGTON Anthony Wiener was outraged that Republicans had voted down a bill to provide healthcare to /*9/11*/ responders.

Wiener made that anger clear.

The house rejected the bill Thursday that would have provided up to $7.4 billion in aid to people sickened by /*World Trade Center*/ dust.

The subsequent outburst has since become an Internet sensation and fodder for cable news networks.
