Vice President Joe Biden
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW

Dear Vice President Biden,
My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history. The main reason I like history is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, have criminal justice reform to help victims of crime get the assistance they need, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is I find your work as former U.S. Senator from Delaware and as Vice President of the United States to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as U.S. Senator from Delaware, I was very proud on how you co-sponsor with Senator Ted Kennedy, Senator Bob Dole, Senator Tom Harkin, Senator Alan K. Simpson, and Senator Richard Lugar on The American With Disabilities Act of 1990 and working with both political parties to pass the ADA of 1990 to help protect people with disabilities from being discriminated in education and public places. I was very proud on you being Vice President of the United States serving with President Barack Obama because both of you make a great team on making America a better place. In your role as Vice President, I liked on how you worked with President Obama on expanding Civil Rights to help protect people with disabilities’ from being discriminated and advocating for people with disabilities’ rights. To improve the economy, I liked on how you helped President Obama push for The American Recovery Act, a stimulus bill to create job-training programs to help train workers including youth to develop job skills. During the healthcare debate in 2010, I was very proud on how you for supporting President Obama on his Affordable Care Act and working with other Congressional lawmakers to push for it to be in law to help people with pre-existing conditions including people who are under age 26 stay on their parent’s health insurance. Another thing that I liked about you in your role as current U.S. Vice President is you continue advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting victims of sexual assault with women’s rights from being weakened, and working with President Obama to push for renewable energy to reduce co2 emissions.
Vice President Biden, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having Autism is difficult for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. The ADA of 1990, your support for people with disabilities’ rights, and your assistance with President Obama to continue helping people with disabilities really inspires me to work hard on Autism and to get a good education from elementary school though my community college where I had accommodations like extra time on exams, have a T.A. or tutor work with me on different subjects, have educational software including a recorder to improve my comprehension along with improve on my note-taking. Also your work on people with disabilities’ rights including President Obama’s support for people with disabilities helped me get an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts at Washtenaw Community College in Spring 2014. Government, criminal justice, some business, and some science are my main focus in my Liberal Arts degree. Your teamwork with President Obama on the American Recovery Act helped me get into a job-training program called The B. Side of Arts at EMU college of business where I had lectures about how business works and had classes where they worked with us on developing job-skills. As the result of the American Recovery Act I developed job-skills and it helped me be prepared to work full-time. The ACA healthcare law helped me stay on my parent’s health insurance until I turn 26 since I’m 25 years old. Without the ACA health care I would have trouble affording health insurance on my own. Your son Beau Biden was a true inspiration to me to be interested in studying about how the criminal justice system works and his support for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on autism.
Vice President Biden, I wanted to send my sympathies to you about losing your son Beau Biden to brain cancer. Your son truly inspired me to be interested in history, work hard on Autism, and have an interest understanding the criminal justice system. Your work as Vice President of the United States on teaming up with President Obama on making great achievements has helped benefit me during Obama Presidency years. You have truly inspired me to continue being interested in learning history, work hard on Autism, and many others. My prayers are for you, President Obama, First Lady Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and your family to do well. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make great achievements, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue your role as Vice President.
Matthew B. Winick
