Jon Stewart called on lawmakers to back up their words with actions on the 9/11 victims' compensation fund and help American heroes who are still suffering today.

Stewart made the comments in an interview Tuesday on "Shepard Smith Reporting," telling host Shepard Smith 9/11 first responders and victims should be viewed as a priority beyond tweets and well-wishes.

"That drove me nuts," the comedian said after being asked by Smith about the empty seats he saw on the Hill. "They kept saying it's a 'sub-subcommittee'. There's still people on the sub-subcommittee that aren't here.

"Either 9/11 was a priority or it wasn't. But, your deeds have to at some point match your tweets and your words. Today it didn't.
