Presidential Candidates May Confront Disability Issues at Town Hall Debate
For the first time in memory, a blind person may actually get a chance to ask a question at tonight's Town Hall Presidential Debate. Only about 18 questions will be asked of Gov. Romney and President Obama, but isn't it about time they answer one question of interest to disabled Americans, their families and friends?
My very cynical comrades claim there's no way a blind man will be allowed to participate in such a crucial national debate. They may be correct, but if we are denied the right to ask one question, we must conclude that both candidates view the disabled as a marginalized community, unworthy of airtime. Stay tuned folks!
Power to the Peeps!
