Bost, who said his mother’s family is populated with many coal miners, said Congress “has got to go with a permanent fix, not just on the health care, but the pensions.” He said stress and worry about whether both will go away for thousands of retired miners has itself led to more health problems.

“They worked around a very dangerous situation, and all they ask for is these benefits that they negotiated,” Bost said.
