Bad Mouthing Disabilitie

@RandPaul Your comments about disability are offensive to say the least: "You know, the thing is is that with all of these programs, there's always somebody who's deserving and everybody in this room knows somebody who is gaming the system," said Paul. "What I tell people is, 'If you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn't be getting a disability check.' You know, over half the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts. Join the club! [the group laughs] Who doesn't get up a little anxious for work every day and their back hurts?! Everybody over 40 has a back pain."
Not every disability is discernible with the naked eye. Chronic pain is disabling. I am one of millions impacted by this. Fungal meningitis which I contracted due to lenient government regulations has complicated my disability.

Learn about disabilities. If you want to represent the country, you need to know who you are representing. Every single one.
