Help Those With Disabilities

The federal government exists to serve the AMERICAN people. It’s time we stopped worrying about giving breaks to illegal aliens and started helping our own people. COVID made one thing clear: our country, our state, and even our county are all grossly underfunded and ill-equipped when it comes to supporting members in the intellectually and developmentally disabled communities (IDD communities).

When Cap gets to Washington, he will:
  • Fight for programs that educate and train individuals to assist those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
  • Draft legislation equipping individuals in the IDD communities with the tools they need to succeed in the workforce and in society in general.
  • Work to ensure that families with members of the IDD communities receive proper resources and training to be able to effectively support their loved ones.
As your Congressman, Robert will fight to make sure the dollars from American taxpayers are going back to Americans, especially those who need our help. Right now, party puppets won't bring this issue to the forefront of their agendas because it doesn't gain as much attention in the media as other things; however, since Day 1, Cap made it clear that he's not in this for the recognition, he's in this fight to make the lives of every American better. This is an important issue and one close to Robert's heart and he will make it a priority to represent these Americans who need our help!

Disabilities in the US (by the numbers):
  • In the United States, as of 2017, there were 7.38 million individuals with either an intellectual or a developmental disability (IDD).1
  • According to the 2017 ICI report, there were 28,910 individuals in the IDD community living in a state-operated setting. Of that, 63% lived in facilities that housed 16 or more people.2
  • Mobility disabilities affect nearly 15% of adults in the United States (1 in 7 adults). According to the Director of the Center for Disease Control National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (CDC NCBDDD), Dr. Coleen Boyle, "[a]t some point in their lives, most people will either have a disability or know someone who has one".3
