Obama, McCain Statements on Disability Issues

In honor of the ADA's anniversary, Barack Obama and John McCain issued statements supportive of disability rights this weekend. Both express support for the ADA Amendments Act, and Obama's expresses support for the Community Choice Act, while McCain's more vaguely expresses support for "legislation that would build on the principles of the Money Follows the Person Initiative, while also keeping my commitment to a responsible budget." For some doubts about McCain's support for disability rights, see this post on GoBecky. And it's certainy true that Obama has the best, most well thought-out position statement on disability rights of any candidate I can recall.
