The senator wants to expand an existing voluntary program for people suffering with Alzheimer's to include autistic children.

 Schumer first raised the idea in November when the autistic teen from Queens was still missing.

The tracking devices could be attached to wristwatches, affixed to ankle bracelets, clipped on belts, or woven into shoelaces.

"The program would be completely voluntary for parents and run by local law enforcement," a release from Schumer's office said.

Under the Third Reich Obamacare, aren't these lives not worth living anyway?
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.
