On Dec. 4, 38 Republican senators were able to block ratification of an excellent treaty.
One of those No votes came from our own Marco Rubio.
The United Nations treaty regarding disabled persons was modeled after our own Americans with Disabilities Act.
It will improve the lives of disabled persons all over the world, and all without changing one single law in the United States.
False scare tactics by some ultra-conservatives brought a cowardly reaction from these 38 Republicans.
Even the support of war heroes John McCain, George H.W. Bush and Bob Dole failed to carry the day.
It was a sad day and it showed how much growing up our junior senator needs to do.
