Government resists altering money for blind people

`The Bush administration on Tuesday asked a federal court to overturn a lower-court ruling requiring the federal government redesign the nation’s paper money to help blind people differentiate between denominations of bills. [..]

In its appeal, the Bush administration disagreed with Robertson’s ruling that blind people were denied “meaningful access” to money by the same-sized bills because portable currency readers exist to help distinguish the bills. The government also said blind people can use credit and debit cards instead of cash.’
