Default Cogress makes progress toward destroying ADA

https://rewire.news/article/2017/09/...abilities-act/

From literally putting their*bodies on the line to save the Affordable Care Act*to contending with a presidential*administration that has demonstrated complete disdain for them, people with disabilities are facing unprecedented times. Last week, things went from bad to worse for us: Congress took significant steps in its efforts to destroy the landmark*Americans With Disabilities Act*(ADA)...

We may be third after people of color and lgbt people but mark my words we wont be the last to have our rights trampled by this Nazi administration. Yes I said it. Lets call it exactly what it is. In fact the elderly and poor are being trampled under foot too. Gonna change food stamps to a box of peanut butter and cereal.
No immunizations let people die in the street cause t hey weren't lucky enough to be born w/o inheritance tax to a billionaire.
Yeah make America suffer again. Without a depression. Just, pre revolution, French tactics..Namely I don't care ism. I don't care about you into death ism. Coupled with lets tax you to death. What about that extra window in your house. There's a new tax!


Think I might march if I can find a group to share the cost.
Its time.

While I support the ADA's premise, as with all things with best intentions, people have pushed the limits and abused the law. The proliferation of handicap plates and tags, and the abuse there of, the obvious and bizarre abuses of 'emotional support' companions, perhaps it's time to redefine what a 'disability' really is.

Most facilities open to the public will continue to provide access: without customers, they cease to exists. 'Reasonable Accommodation' for employers has now become 'what I want when I want' by those who declare a disability.

As to your ridiculous claim of 'peanut butter and cereal' in lieu of food stamps, will some be happy with what is included? Probably not, but the reduction in fraud will be considerable. As I posted before, the black market in food stamps (or EBT cards, if you will) will diminish considerably as no one wants to trade a can of beans for the drug du jour.

Your hyperbole and drama is predictable. But that's all it is.

And you do not realize these cherry picked "news" stories were aired specifically to make you think this way.

Why?
They didn't before. It is yes my contention that this administration backed by some wealthy social engineers as well ad an evil rusky oligarch wish to not only do away with gains made by marginal groups but to do away with these people altogether. Be it out of neglect or taking away their livelihood if they are able t o do work.

Do you realize how many grocery stores will go under and more take a hit if this does come about?

You do know about the retirees all over this country and that some towns are predominately elderly now? Also it would be more expensive to ship this stuff than the system we have now. Also consideration for strict diets must be met. There are other things but ill just give you those few to consider.

"Your hyperbole and drama is predictable. But that's all it is."

No it just made me mad my prediction is already coming true after you working people were forced to give your taxes to the top nth of people who never created a job and have plenty guided and piled up and to take it from those in true need. Are there abuses? Yes and those are punished, unlike the Medicare thieves who become governors or the President's appointee taking money from veterans to fly his wife to Denmark for vaca.
Huh. I heard one R senator say he wanted the chief in this matter to look into getting welfare recipients hooked w the labor department so they could reach a goal and improve their lot. Guess he didn't get the memo his president wants to get rid of the labor department too.
You need to either read this bill or listen to the hearings so you really can be informed about it. Better take a swallow of pepto first.

What news stories? I speak from personal experience. While some of the crap that gets blurted online is sad, I take it pretty much with the proverbial grain.

You need to get out more and observe people. It costs you nothing, but it's very educational.

Perhaps you are swayed by 'news stories', cherry picked to make you think a certain way, but many of us don't. Please put away your paintbrush, and start opening your eyes.

I apologize.
I have not seen much abuse since we quit traveling cross country. If you mean people w/o tags parking in handicap spaces.
In sure you understand there are more elderly living longer and more w disabilities living period w today's technology.
