Dear Senator DeMint,
I want to thank you.
Thank you for blocking the Senate from ratifying the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Sure, there’s bipartisan support for it proven by the fact that the U.S. signed the treaty way back in 2009. But why should the Senate waste its time on a document that calls for a better standard of living and greater accessibility for people with disabilities worldwide?
Thank you for helping the hospitality industry’s lobby groups push to extend the deadline for the installation of permanent lifts in every public pool. After all, fighting for fairness and equality for all just takes up too much time when it pertains to something as silly as swimming! Besides, how can the federal government expect these fancy-shmancy hotels to understand what a permanent lift is in just two years?
Thank you for working so hard for that $175,000.00 paycheck you receive from the American people, including those with disabilities.
Thank you for your efforts to weaken the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Thank you for holding back the progress of not only Americans with disabilities but also individuals worldwide. A legacy to truly be proud of!
