Jim Ward on Alito and Disability Rights

See this piece, which begins:

It may be hard to believe, but one area of Judge Samuel A. Alito’s record remains unexamined by most major media: his views on the rights of Americans with disabilities.

A close look at Judge Alito’s opinions and writings makes it clear that he would like to reverse the historic gains of people with disabilities. He has relied repeatedly on a cramped vision of congressional authority to protect the rights of all citizens, and he has routinely ignored the factual record of discrimination and abuse of people with disabilities.
