I am joining the disability march because I believe that by virtue of being born, everyone deserves a healthy and happy life with equal protections under the law. I believe that the ADA is one of the most important pieces of legislation our country. I believe that we need to have a health care system that will give everyone access to affordable health insurance, regardless of employment status, pre-existing conditions, payment caps, etc.
