Although it isn't the only factor in my choice of presidential candidate, this is a Big one. I fully intend to learn from both sides on what their plans are to support people with disabilities. Showing me how they will be a friend and advocate in the White House for those of us in the special needs community is of critical importance to me.
Here's a link that includes a video and Obama's fact sheet on his plan to empower people with disabilities. I looked for a similar response from his opponent. Although McCain's website has a section "on the issues" I did not see disability issues listed. If you are aware of such a plan, please leave me a comment with a link and I'll be sure to check it out.
