Opponents of the U.N. disabilities treaty say it could change U.S. law. We're Keeping them Honest.
Like the same thing is not happening right now with the internet treaty. LOL. Hey...Anderson talk to folks who have a International law degree. Politicians don't even read these things. Yes even the sponsors. Also if this will not change anything in the US, why does it need to be done? Do you really think that we can tell another country to follow this treaty?
This story is so sad. Once again this shows how broken our system is. It shows how our leaders are bought and paid for by big money lobbyist even when the argument is ridiculous! Once again the American people loose esp the disabled here and around the world. I hope that those that voted against this treaty will be voted out in their next election!
If this treaty is not enforceable in the U.S. why are "we" even screwing around with it? Obvious it can't be all that great if we can choose to ignore it.We got BIG problems here in our own country NOW. The Congress really needs to get working on OUR problems..Our economy is circling the drain, and they chatter much ado about nothing ,we will even choose to enforce.
The statement keeps being made that this act will in no way have any affect on the United States. My questions are:
1. Does this act give the United Nations (UN) authority over foreign families? 2. What will the effect be on how children are cared for and raised? 3. How is the act going to be enforced? 4. Who will fund its implementation?
5. The UN has not been successful in securing even the most fundamental human rights acts, what makes this one different?
