Jon Stewart returns to 'The Daily Show' to shame Congress over healthcare for 9/11 responders

Jon Stewart returned for a special episode of "The Daily Show" Monday night dedicated to one of his most passionate causes, healthcare for 9/11 first responders. 

In 2010, Stewart successfully helped shame Congress into passing the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act by bringing a panel of first responders onto his Comedy Central program. The legislation, named after a New York police officer who worked at ground zero following 9/11 and later died of a respiratory disease, covered medical expenses for emergency workers thought to be sickened by their exposure to toxic substances during the recovery efforts.
