Sen. Marco Rubio should be ashamed of his No vote on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty.
This treaty is the same as the disabilities act that was established during the George H.W. Bush administration. Already ratified by 125 countries, it would hold foreign nations to the same high standard of treatment that the United States already maintains for people with disabilities. And it would safeguard American citizens when they’re abroad.
Evidently, Sen. Rubio has no compassion or empathy and certainly doesn’t display even a semblance of a profile in courage.
