Seriously though, I don't know how this treaty is supposed to benefit the US. It can't be as simple as spreading American standards around the world. If it is, what's in it for the countries that are agreeing to adopt our standards?
Maybe they have a bunch of do-gooders at the UN that love disabled people. I don't know. Maybe they just like disabled people. Maybe they get a nice grant for every disabled program they have. Maybe they aren't god-forsaken hell holes and want to help disabled people and think the ADA was a good little model.
The US Chamber of Commerce probably sees it as a way to even up business resources spent on disabled person's accommodations.
