Because these two worked day after day to get this think through, after suffering loss.
They worked like dogs to get this passed. They did their best.
But, this leg was not brought by diabetics. It did not have ADA support, directly.
I’m not sure it does much of anything to helps us, once it went through the meat grinder of the legislative process. It has a sunset clause, after which it is unlikley to even exist.
It does take swings at the system, though. That is a big deal. That is difficult to do. So, maybe it is one step in a process to produce something better.
It has always raised the question, for me, why we are unable to do anything for ourselves. Why aren’t diabetics ever able to build legislation? Why are we unable to file in court like other illness groups? We have only been classified as legally recognized disability for ten years. We all know that the kinks have not yet been worked out. Why are we so lame? What is the practical benefit of disability status if we don’t build off fof that? We make me mad.
