It seems that the other day, when Congress actually had a chance to do something good, they fucked it up yet again. The Americans with Disabilities Act is the U.S. law on which the UN treaty was proposed. An act that was put in place by Bush Sr., and now, because of the UN treaty, was supposed to become the rule in other countries. Let me say this again.................the UN treaty was MODELED ON AMERICAN LAW SIGNED INTO EFFECT BY A GOP PRESIDENT. In no way would it have done ANYTHING to people here in the US, because like I said, the Americans With Disabilities Act is ALREADY law here in the US. The UN treaty would have just exported it to other countries, where they would model their plan on WHAT THE US ALREADY DOES!!!!!! So....................why does the GOP hate the disabled? Did they vote against it just because Obama was going to sign it? Bob Dole (a GOP presidential candidate) showed up to help the bill get passed, yet it didn't. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/05/us/despite-doles-wish-gop-rejects-disabilities-treaty.html?_r=0 By the way...............know who led the charge in getting this treaty to not be passed? Rick Santorum.
