My father was a coal miner and I remember at times how hard it was for him to breath... but we don't have to have that in this day in age.. Remember the ones we love!

My dad worked in the coal mine for 35 years. He had black lung disease. It took 13 years for him to win his case for benefits.(6 months before he died!) Changes need to be made!

DonnaandDavid King, I am so sorry to hear about your sister. That is the trouble with the healthy and wealthy people these days. They only care about themselves. The Republican Party is part to blame as they want to cut what paltry health benefits there are available and cut medicare and social security also, not to mention social services. They don't want any kind of health care for just us people. Of course the Insurance Companies want to charge an arm and a leg for premiums and cut all...

Of course the Insurance Companies want to charge an arm and a leg for premiums and cut all benefits too all the while paying CEO's exorbiant salaries. I wish you and your sister luck in qualifying for her benefits.

God bless those guys! Our nation needs coal and we have plenty of it. I'm curious as to why they don't wear masks? Or do they?

My dad , My grandfathers, uncles were coal miners. I don't recall dad ever wearing a mask, but that doesn't mean he didn't and certainly doesn't mean they don't now. I am like you, It seems they could. I just remember seeing only the whites of his eyes so many times. My dad also had black lung. But he started working in a coal mines at 9 years old, making .25cents a day... A lot has changed since then.

Sorry, but I believe the Federal Government should not be involved in this issue. We have too much government in issues that are between the people and industry. People choose to work the mines. Many jobs have risks we are willing to take to pay our bills. Federal government should remain within the limits of the U.S. Constitution. Too much government means loss of freedom.

There is no excuse for this. The US has plenty of money to look after their citizens but they waste it on being the centre of the world. Stop fighting everyone and start looking after people please.

I am signing this as a wife of a coal miner. If the senators, etc. that are in charge of passing or not passing this legislature had to earn a living by coal mining, you bet your sweet ___ it would get passed in a hurry!
