Maybe I Missed The Point

It's been a week since we quoted CommieTommie Harkin saying something stupid, so here he goes.

Harkin says votes against disabilities treaty based on ‘unfounded fears’

The Senate rejected this United Nations (UN) treaty 61-38 and according to Harkin  --  “I just don’t understand this vote. We just can’t be voting on unfounded fears. If that’s what’s going to drive this place, God help us.”

As I opined last week, this is the man who takes scare mongering to another level, especially if it has anything to do with Social Security/Medicare.

And the scientific community is united in that fact

Harkin continued -- “We’ve got in testimonies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and all the documents that came back from the Justice Department said we don’t have to change one law in our country and there’s nothing in the treaty that forces any country to do anything. Zero.”

Then what's the point?

Especially when you consider this treaty was adopted by the UN on December 13, 2006 and was signed by the U.S. on June 30, 2009.
