Senseless senators discriminate against disabled :(

Despite Dole appearance, Senate fails to ratify disabilities treaty.

"Supporters of the measure – which included Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona – argued ratification wouldn't impact rights in the U.S. but would help promote the rights of the disabled overseas.

"This treaty is about the behavior of other countries and their willingness to raise their treatment of people with disabilities to our level. It's that simple," said Sen. John Kerry, D-Massachusetts, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. "This isn't a treaty about changing America. It's a treaty to change the world to be more like America."

Our kid is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and so are we (as we get older and deafer).  I guess some senators don't care about protecting my Israeli brother and his kids.  :(
