Today and yesterday I came across these two articles on disabilities and our government. The first one is about former Senator Robert Dole and his tireless work to get congress to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. While it fell five votes short in 2012, he’s hopefull they’ll finally get it done. The article is “The One Issue 91-Year Old Bob Dole is Still Fighting” by Arlette Saenz over at Yahoo via ABC News.
If this next article is any indication, maybe there is hope. The article is entitled “Congress Weighing Tax-Free Disability Savings Accounts” by Michelle Diament at Disability Scoop. So maybe there is a chance.
