That 38 Republican Senators blocked the ratification of the U.N. Disabities Treaty did not go unnoticed by Jon Stewart.
"Please tell me this is rock bottom," said the Daily Show host.
The treaty would have encouraged--not forced--signatory nations to come into compliance with international disability standards, which are modeled after the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). That's right, we are already in compliance with the treaty, which was non-binding anyway.
"But I can be open-minded," said Stewart, "what are your bullsh*t reasons for voting against this?"
