9/11 Commission recommendations

15 cents per Tax Payer for a New 9/11 Commission

How many tax dollars would it take for a new 9/11 Commission?
Tax pennies, is more like it.

In 2005 there were about 100,000,000 Americans who paid taxes.

If each Tax Payer paid 15 cents, that would be $15 million,
about as much as the Zelikow-Kean-Hamilton Commission eventually got.

Initially the 9/11 Commission got $3 million, about 3 cents per tax payer, or even
zero per tax payer, if the money was "printed" by the Federal Reserve.

Pelosi touts progress on 9/11 bill

By ERICA WERNER, Associated Press Writer1 hour, 24 minutes ago

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi used the Democrats' weekly radio address Saturday to tout her party's passage of legislation to implement major recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

The House passed the bill Friday on a 371-40 vote, a day after the Senate passed it 85-8. The White House said the president would sign it.

The legislation would shift money to high-risk states and cities, expand screening of air and sea cargo and put money into a new program to ensure that security officials at every level can communicate with each other.

9/11 Families Demand GOP Stop Blocking Commission Recommendations

Painfully aware of the avalanche of irrelevant amendments that Republicans have put forth in an attempt to stall or derail the 9/11 Commission recommendations from getting a Senate vote, families of those who died on September 11 have sent a harshly-worded letter to Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), demanding that the GOP put national security before politics.
