    You are saying then that blind people are not disabled? How about someone with Menieré's Disease? Is someone with multiple chemical sensitivity disease disabled? Talk to us about people who have cancer or progressive diseases and tell us which ones should and which ones should not include public accommodations. Explain to us how all disabilities are constant in their limitations and never vary. Tell us how if a person with a disability is going to have a bad day, they know it before they go to the store. Explain to me how the world is just as accessible for people with disabilities and why we have soooo many people in positions of power and authority who are disabled?
    Tom Coburn: Go read the statute. If there's any job in the economy you can perform, you are not eligible for disability. That's pretty clear. So, where'd all those disabled people come from?

    So you don't actually know what the statute says, you're just going off a third parties statement about it on a news show?

    Well, that seems like factual law.....

    Unfortunately Coburn doesn't know his hole from an ass in the ground when he makes that statement. What statutue says that? Coburn doesn't know. Because he is a senator and he was on TV his statement is taken as gospel. In fact, he is wrong.

    Not at all. But I don't make claims of what a Statute is or says if I don't actually know the statute myself or can provide it if requested.
