Senate Rejects UN Disability Treaty

Today, the U.S. Senate refused to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  Heritage Action released the following statement from CEO Michael A. Needham:

We congratulate the Senators who stood for American sovereignty by refusing to ratify this treaty.  While today’s vote is important, it does not mark the end of the fight.  Bad treaties never die in Washington and Heritage Action will remain vigilant.
