    The USA needs to stop trying to legislate the world. You actually think you can pass a bill at the UN that will force the Sudanese to provide wheelchair access to every business? The UN can't even get Congo rebels (and they're all rebels at one point or another) to stop overthrowing their govts. What's next? You want a law that says disabled people in North Korea get health care, subsidized housing, food stamps and a check every month equal to California's disabled, Good luck with that. Total waste of time and money.

    Correct me if I am wrong; but this says that the bill originated at the United Nations not in the United States.

    @buckeyedeal That is correct. This should not be a news story of "Republicans voted against it" if in fact it hadn't come to a vogte in the USA however. At that point it become a USA issue. Right?

    Totally agree. Why does America think it needs to fix the world. I say we should clean up our own back yard before we clean up someone elses.

    @jessejaymes yea, like today I heard they want to make it so kids of illegals can go to college for half price tuition, not sure I understand why though.

    I see Sen Santorum is still using his disabled daughter as political ammo. Well, I guess being on World Net Daily's payroll will require him to do some pretty bizarre things in public (not to be confused with "Santorum," which is generally produced in private). Fortunately, he doesn't have a political future to screw up.

    @ST_Louie_Sue Sen Santorum exploits his sick child in order to criticize a treaty on rights of the disabled and I'm the bad guy? Maybe you should breather into a paper bag for a few minutes.

    Wish I could vote you up more than once!! You nailed it exactly!! People like this think if we get rid of babies and disabled it will leave a bigger piece of the pie for themselves!!

    @Ashstop What a load. Republican leaders only care about "life" when it's an unborn fetus, or when it's convieniant for them to care. I.E. It will help their political career.

    Rick Santorum was the only presidential candidate with the common sense to tell us all that our main problem in America is our culture and our broken families. The left hates any mention of morals or responsibility so this is why they hate Santorum so much. The UN is one of the most corrupt entities in this world and for them to dictate to any nation is a pure joke. They were actually buying Oil form Saddam Hussein when we were suppose to be imposing sanctions on him. They are yet one more control group such as the likes of unions, Obama, etc.

    RickSantorum wants to tuen the US into a theocracy.(you know, like Iran, Saudi Arabia...you know all those fun places...) how moral are those places?!?

    reality is fun!

    I dislike Santorum because he demonstrates a very strong irrational tendency. Religious zealots in leadership roles frighten me. The left is just as moral and responsible as anyone else. Religion is not a prerequisite for a moral compass. The UN exists for the benefit of all nations, not only to support the US in everything it does. You want it all your way or no way at all.

    @woodtick57 Hogwash, Santorum does not want to turn America into a theocracy. Do you like scaring the ignorant people? Are you working for Obama? Obama is the one to fear. He is absolutely turning America Socialist.

    Actuallu they spoke as they it would lead to euthanasia of the disabled. Also how would any U.N. treaty be enforced in the U.N. nations, it would not be except here in America. It would also lead to U.N. control of America and a one world government, is that what you really want? I certainly hope not.
  • #8

    I often agree with you and mostly when I don't I just let it be but you are wrong here. We cannot enforce, nor can such a law be financed. It's a straw dog. There is no point in trying to pass laws that third world countries where the majority of the population is grateful for a tin roof, that we ourselves have. This is nothing more than grandstanding.

    First of all, your utter hatred of the GOP has blinded you again. As other posters and the article said...we already have ADA (Americans with Disablilities Act) which provides numerous provisions for disabled people. Second, I guess you weren;t around in 1995 when Al Gore (Democrat Vice President at the time) attended the UN conference on "Global Depopulation". It is falsely believed the conference was to find ways to curb population growth, but the term "depopulation" means one thing...GETTING RID OF PEOPLE AALREADY HERE. Get the UN out of the US before we become UNAmerican.

    @captchaos69 This bill got a majority of democratic vote and a minority of GOP votes. The tea bag wing of the GOP voted against it. It was supported by prominent republicans like Bob Dole, Dick Thornberg and Dick Lugar. Hardly an example of my so-called hatred of the GOP, just my hatred of the tea bag wing.

    @jessejaymes Regardless we should stand for the disabled as the majority of democrats did and as 126 other countries have.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but American's with Disabilities already is the law of the land here. What possible use would it be to sign a such a treaty? Signing it would only serves to let the most corrupt organization in the world into our country's business and lead us further down the road to losing our soverienty..

    @Neo_NtheMatrix - very Christ like of you to throw disabled people under the bus. Also a majority of disabled are vets, so very patriotic of you to try to disregard them.

    I am no fan of the UN. But I voted yes because what would the cost be? Nothing. It would be the gesture that would count. The vote down just showed the GOP once again as the mean spirited and nasty political party the rest of the world has come to see them as.

    On it's face, it looks like Ice Cream Sundae for dessert. Anything coming from the UN has to be viewed with circumspect - the growing need to control sovereign nations by a bunch of thugs and despots. We already have a comprehensive American Disabilities Act....Sen. Santorum is right!
  • #74

    So let get this straight. Rick Santorum joins a racist white nationalist website that claims Obama is Kenyan born Muslim homosexual. That's where they are taking their advice on how to vote for this treaty? A treaty that DOESN'T CHANGE US LAW AT ALL. So Republicans should we kill all disabled? Throw them in the streets and die? Is that your solution? Because there was no other reason to vote against this bill other than you are a bigot.

    All 38 Republican senators who voted against this treaty deserve to lose their seats. Republicans aren't far right wing. They are insane and driving the USA into the mental institution.

    This is one of the saddest things I've ever seen.

    I agree wholeheartedly, it is a blatant disgrace and makes me feel embarrassed and ashamed as an American and fellow human being...only good I can see is that the sinking boat called the GOP is doomed, what a bunch of idiots, too blind to see the writing on the wall, go figure... keep up the good work, the majority has already voted in support for where we wish the direction of our country to go, next election won't even be close if they keep up this idiocy of attempted governing in our modern world...btw, in no way am I supporting a "one world government", but last I checked, we are all human beings (frail in that we are alone as a species, maybe we should have been nicer to the Neanderthals), the same all over, living on one planet (our mother Earth, if we don't destroy her too that is) together and until we figure this out, I fear we too are doomed, just like the GOP...

    "In all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration." It takes a truth twisting, mind twisted politician to interpret that statement as evidence of the intent to euthanize disabled children. I didn't know much about Rick Santorum before, but I do now.

    I dont trust anything the U.N. does. I wish they would relocate. Then again I feel about new york the way I feel about the U.N., so it's in another country already I guess.

    @ded I used to have a solid opinion about new york and new yorkers. Pushy, arrogant, self-absorbed and I know what they think of us hicks, me and my kin in flyover country. After 9/11 that changed, but it has been reverting back.

    Santorium lost what credibility he had when he accepted a job with a website that advocates for secession so they can have a whites only nation.

    Actually I would vote for Hilary before I would vote for Santorum and I can't stand Hilary. But I would like to know what this job with a white supremacist secessionist website is all about?

    @Keyjo Of course Santorium is a loon. He's worse than that. He's a religious zealot. But that doesn't change the fact it's a waste of time and money for our congress to be voting on bills that are UN bills. We have no business trying to legislate the world.

    I wouldn't agree with the UN on a FREE AIR FOR EVERYONE treaty. The Universal Nemesis is nothing more than a hotbed for spies and scumbags that needs to leave our soil. We can use the vacant building as an enclosure for a landfill and be better off.

    The entire concept of the Universal Nemesis is socialist, piss-ant countries who can't organize their own homeland actually having a vote on the actions of World Powers is stupid. Having a cesspool like Iran monitor our elections is a travesty.

    WE don't need the UN, nor does Israel, the UK, Germany, Japan or China to name a few; granting the power of leadership to countries like Namibia, Qatar, Nigeria and Bangladesh is a joke.

    Nothing the UN says is good will be good for us..... UN treaty? Universal No!

    If the UN wants to adopt the ADA, then that is fine. But we who originally passed and enacted that law don't need a bunch of blowhards from the UN telling us how to enforce our laws. Good job GOP for shooting this down. The UN (for which we fund the majority of anyways) can stay the Hell out of our business.
