Fine idea, but how come we don't fix all the other handicap-access problems that the ADA was built to fix, first?
In Oregon, they have adopted a "separate but equal" doctrine for at least one ADA-critical application, that being handicapped access to boating the pristine waters of Waldo Lake, one of Oregon's biggest lakes.
Last year, my boater-acess political org, Willboat, argued before the State Marine Board that restricting access to the lake for motor-boaters was a violation of the ADA. The Board agreed with us that removing motor-boater access to the lake would likely be seen as an ADA violation, but they defended their closure by saying that there were other lakes that handicapped boaters requiring motors could use.
Pardon me, but wasn't "separate but equal" as a doctrine to alleviate discrimination ruled unconstitutional by the SCOTUS about 50 years ago?
The entire problem with the ADA is that it is allowed to be watered down or have exceptions made to it by the very Government which is supposed to have been so enthusiastic about the idea of handicapped-access in the first place. There is large cost in ADA compliance, as CATO's article points out. Thereby, there is a large opportunity for political graft.
Either enforce the ADA or remove it from the books.
