Huge cause for Concern

I would like to preface this by stating that this new bill hasn’t been voted on yet. It’s something that needs to spoken about more. 

Few days ago we spoke about this on The Satirically Challenged Show this new bill will ultimately effect public areas if it goes through. The bill is in the process to be voted on by U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, DC. 

I wonder if those in office understand that the ADA isn’t something that you can just weaken without consequences for many people who depend on having access to accessibile areas. 

The ADA makes provides laws that require accessibile entrances to restaurants, hospitals and hotels. This new bill would weaken the laws that are meant to provide access to those with disabilities. 

Will those in office be held accountable if the ADA is in weakened state? 

This change would ultimately show that United States is willing to go back to the dark ages. The one thing that we can do is call our local officials about this since the ADA shouldn’t be weakened. 

This was first brought to our attention for The Human Rights Watch article which helped to inspire this article since this topic needs to brought up more especially on mainstream media. This isn’t something we should let slip away. U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on it soon. 

This is something that we shouldn’t remain silent about especially with knowing the consequences of this new bill if it goes through. 

This is something that more organizations should be discussed on mainstream media. We can still lend your voice to this latest bill that still has to be voted on.
