Duckworth: Republican coronavirus package would ‘gut’ Americans With Disabilities Act | TheHill

“Allowing businesses to exclude employees with disabilities from reopening plans is exactly the kind of discrimination the ADA sought to abolish, yet the GOP’s HEALS Act seeks to relegate millions of Americans back to second class status, sending the offensive message that our community can be cast aside if the costs to companies are too high,” Duckworth added.

“No one is asking for special treatment, what we are asking for is to not take away those basic rights the Constitution promised all those centuries ago and this chamber affirmed three decades ago under a Republican president.”
