Slaughter and Berman Sign on to HR 3101!

Two more Democratic Representatives were added to the HR 3101 cosponsor list yesterday: Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY), and Representative Howard Berman (D-CA). (Slaughter represents Rochester, New York so the residents of that deaf-friendly town should be cheering!) Now the score is Democrats 32, Republicans 0! Why haven't any Republicans signed on yet to HR 3101 too? Surely they are hearing from deaf and hard of hearing constituents in their districts too?

Do Republicans understand the importance of this bill to deaf and hard of hearing people regardless of political party affiliation? Even the late President Ronald Reagan had a hearing aid!
