    So the US Senate rejected a UN power grab.

    My question is that if the UN really just wants to help the disabled, then what is stopping them from doing so even without the US Senate's agreement?

    Perhaps they need more funding.

    We already have laws to help the disabled, protect the disabled, etc... The ONLY thing this 'treaty' with the UN accomplishes is handing power to them that they currently do not have....

    If what the lefties are saying is to be believed, they aren't talking about what's going on in this country, but about implementing better treatment laws in other countries. Maybe even based on US laws.

    So what exactly is stopping them? That's what I want to know.

    The Senate votes on treaties, not the House. It all has to do with creeping world laws, progressive steps, it is setting precedence. It always starts with the simple shit.

    I'm sorry, didn't I read it was the House?

    The treaty would not have effected anything. It wouldn't have given the UN any powers or changed any laws we don't already have.

    Ok, so it WAS the Senate! So how is it the GOP's fault that the treaty was rejected when the Senate Democrats outnumber the Senate Republicans?
