Speaking the other night from his hometown of Wilmington, Del., the president-elect pledged to work for every American.  “We must make the promise of the country real for everybody — no matter their race, their ethnicity, their faith, their identity or their disability,” Biden said.

As a candidate, Biden issued a wide-ranging disability plan that called for “full equality.” He committed to backing an increase in Supplemental Security Income benefits, fully funding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, phasing out subminimum wage and adding support for direct care providers as well as family caregivers.
