2008 Presidential Candidate Positions on Disability-related Issues

This side-by-side comparison of the candidates' positions on disability-related issues is based on information found on the candidates' Web sites, the candidates' Senatorial Web sites and supplemented by other sources. OLRS neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for office. Information provided on this page is strictly for educational purposes only.

The McCain/Palin camp has reiterated their support for children with special needs since Governor Palin's awareness has been raised with the birth of her son Trig. However, as always, the programs only focus on children and do not extend past the age of 21. They are then left with minimal support until the age of 65 when government programs become available once again.
