Extend 1NC 1 – Status Quo Solves – Affordable Care Act solves disability oppression in the medical model – that’s our Sebelius evidence – prefer it, our evidence is from last week and cites passage of “Obamacare”, a recent political event that their evidence doesn’t account for – prefer our author – she is the President of the Health and Human Services for the USFG, means she knows the inner workings of recent legislation Status-quo solves their national consciousness internal links– universal accessibility for the disabled is already politicized and raised awareness
CAS, 2010(Center for an Accessible Society, “The American’s with Disabilities Act”, March, http://www.accessiblesociety.org/topics/ada/index.html) Ten years after the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, this landmark federal law has proved a remarkable success, defying the gloom and doom predictions of many members of Congress that the law, designed to open up American society to its 54 million citizens with disabilities, would bankrupt the economy. At the same time however, the law has not fully delivered on its keys promises to eliminate discrimination against people with disabilities in the workplace and in public accommodations. The ADA has profoundly changed how society views and accommodates its citizens with disabilities. Universal design -- the practice of designing products, buildings and public spaces and programs to be usable by the greatest number of people -- has helped create a society where curb cuts, ramps, lifts on buses, and other access designs are increasingly common. In the process, we have discovered that an accessible society is good for everyone, not just people with disabilities. Curb cuts designed for wheelchair users are also used by people with baby carriages, delivery people, and people on skateboards and roller blades. With the Baby Boom generation poised to enter the population of seniors, the number of Americans needing access and universal design will grow enormously. The ADA has created a more inclusive climate where companies, institutions, and organizations are reaching out far more often to people with disabilities. Colleges and universities, for example, now accommodate more people with disabilities than they did before ADA, even though they have been obligated by law for nearly 25 years to make their campus and classrooms accessible.
