Tell Congress Do Not Repeal The Americans With Disabilities Act Of 1990

The ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 is a naked attempt by the GOP-controlled 115th Congress to repeal the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This would put an onerous burden on Americans with disabilities to have equal access to all public accommodations as had been spelled out in the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many business owners still refuse to follow the law claiming financial burden. That's fine and dandy, but it's no justifiable reason for noncompliance. If there's a heavy burden, then have Congress set up a tax-credit system for incentivizing business owners to make the necessary accommodations to allow disabled consumers to fully access their goods or services.

Tell your members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate that their vote to pass will mean your vote to remove them from office in November's midterm election (GOP) or the primaries (Democrats). Calling for the right to discriminate based on disability to be enshrined in law is just wrong. There's no reasonable justification for doing so. Take that message with you to the polls.
