The ACB's lawsuit against the U.S. Department of the Treasury to make 
them make money accessible was already flawed to say the least. 
According to the United States Constitution, the power to design money 
has been delegated to Congress, and the Department of the Treasury is 
only responsible for carrying out the orders of Congress. Therefore, the 
best way to make money accessible would have been for any and all 
so-called advocacy organizations to lobby Congress and get a bill passed 
and signed by the President of the United States that would redesign our 
money in an accessible way. Do I think the ACB's lawsuit was a publicity 
stunt? Absolutely, as if they wanted us to have accessible money for 
sure, they would have gone through the proper channels and we would have 
had it by now. Instead, where are we? No closer to truly accessible 
currency than we were when this whole sleighride begen nearly 10 years 
ago. Thank you, ACB and NFB for being such advocates for the needs of 
blind and visually impaired citizens of the United States. Without your 
petty bickering and your "We're not them" attitudes, the world would 
certainly be a better and more friendly place for all of us.
