With Health-Care Bill, GOP Forgets That People With Disabilities Vote
Robyn Powell writes in the online publication Rewire:
“Fifty-seven million individuals in the United States—about one in five in this country—have some form of disability. The numbers alone demonstrate that disability affects many families. It transcends gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and political affiliation. Most people in this country either know someone living with a disability or themselves are disabled.
This should worry the House Republicans who just voted in favor of the American Health Care Act (also known as Trumpcare), a bill that could put the lives of millions of Americans, including myself, in grave danger.”
