People with disabilities are frustrated

that politicians are ignoring issues that will help the economic problem. Over the years, peoople with disabilities were treated differently socially, legally, and politically in the United States. In the United States, we are protected and the United States Government should ensures equal rights within a constitutional tradition for the people with disabilities. Many people with disabilities do WANT to work and they WANT to be independent. However there are "red tape" barriers that preventing people with disabilities to gain indepedence. We do not like being burdens on society however, we do want to see politicians come up with something that makes sense that will help over 100 million of disabled (disabilities of all kinds)registered voters. Reading my fellow blogger's frustrations is one example in her blog Whimpsy's Red Tape. She is one of those people who relies on the government for money that they don't make it easy to get out of the situation. Here are the lists of "major" Political Advocacy Groups for the Disabled while there are hundreds of advocacy groups for the specific disability such as Multiple Sclerosis, Deafness and others.

I want to know which politicians TODAY are supporting people with disabilities. Who are they?

Thanks for visiting my blog. Interestingly enough, I just added this information to my page to talk about one candidate, but I will research others to see what they are doing as well.

I am interested in knowing that about the candidates myself.

The rules and restrictions they place on people on disibility are mind numbingly nonsensical.

I remember calling the SS office with a question. I talked to four different people who gave me four different answers. The best and most honset answer was "I don't know."

Thanks for the shout out.
