Current animal sanctuary worker and former Daily Show host Jon Stewart returned to his old stomping ground Monday night. It was an exciting surprise, but the reason he came back wasn't—he's raising awareness of the fact that Congress is refusing to renew the 2011 Zadroga Act, which provides healthcare to 9/11 First Responders who contracted cancers and pulmonary diseases from their experiences at Ground Zero. It's truly baffling that the government would let this bill expire, unless their plan all along was to force Jon Stewart to come back to public life so he could fight for it.
