In a mean-spirited way, the GOP refused to vote for a bill that was mostly symbolic relating to disabled people all over the world. This is nothing new for them.
The bill was supported by former Sen. Bob Dole, one of their own. It would not have changed any laws in the U.S., nor would it have cost us any money. These are the kind of mean-spirited people President Barack Obama has to try to compromise with about policies that can have a major effect on people’s real lives.
I hope Obama is paying attention. We all know Obama will cave in at the drop of a hat. However, now is not the time to concede any ground to these people; it will only embolden them to continue their destructive ways. There was an election; they lost. Let’s act like we won for a change.
