Montana Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester are working to get a full waiver of Medicare liens that have been placed on pending settlements for Libby asbestos victims.

The senators sent a letter on Oct. 2 to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, asking the agency to bypass the red tape so Libby residents sickened by asbestos exposure from the defunct W.R. Grace & Co. vermiculite mine can finally get compensated for their asbestos disease.

            Say all you want about the lawyers...but I know for a fact WITHOUT the lawyers working on these cases for over 10 years, WITHOUT any guranteed compensation, the victims would have received NOTHING
