Senator Kerry Urges Passage of Disabilities Treaty

&feature=g-all

An impassioned Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) took to the floor just prior to the vote, challenging arguments that the treaty would encroach on American sovereignty and require significant changes in current law. Instead, Kerry charged, the treaty could be boiled down to four words, “Be more like us.” Kerry, the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was joined in pressing for the approval of convention by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in a rare moment of bipartisanship.
