//////////GOP Opposition Defeats Treaty Protecting Rights of Disabled
Treaty modeled after Americans for Disabilities Act fails to get two-thirds majority in Senate vote
The disabled are amoung the 47% that the Republicans dont care about.........
The 61-38 vote failed to reach a two-thirds majority needed to ratify The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. All 38 votes rejecting the measure are from Republicans.
But the treaty has Republican supporters, including former Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole, who made an appearance before the vote to urge lawmakers to ratify the treaty. Politico reports:
Dole, who was in wheelchair, came to the floor shortly before senators began to vote. Accompanied by his wife, former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, he listened as Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) made a final push for the treaty. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) walked over to greet Dole, smiling and patting Dole’s back.
In a touching moment, Rep. Jim Langevin (D-R.I.), who also uses a wheelchair and has publicly urged the Senate to ratify the treaty, joined Dole at one point, holding hands with him as they talked and listened to Kerry.
Why do the Republicans hate the disabled people?
There are 191 countries in the world.
The United States gives money to 158 of them.
We give money to Venezuela, Egypt, Libya and our Benedict Arnold Ally, Pakistan, just to name a few.
We even give money to our good buddies the Chinese even though they hold over $1 trillion of our federal debt.
Isn't that lovely?
Our national debt is over $16 trillion; we need to stop sending money that we don't have all over the world.
" While the effectiveness of foreign aid remains up for debate, the United States recently has continued to pump around $50 billion in aid to other countries each year.
In terms of the absolute value of aid given, the United States is the world's top donor by far.
So where is all that money going?
