The further away the mental Health industry, the safer the family, friends and the better the society and the friendlier the village. Small town America should run the mental Health out of town and out of the schools system. Never put a person with a mental Health degree on the school board

I thought all along that psychiatry taught in India was based on a similar theory of instrumental horn playing to charm or memorized a snake. How wrong I must be in the realization that you understand the addiction of alcohol and the (no sciences) of the Mental HeAlth industry in the USA. I note you overlooked the prescription mind drug addition we are suffering from in our country

When you deal with the Pharmaceutical Industry your talking George Bush Sr. The funding of the mental Health Industry was under the Bush Sr presidency with the Educational Act along with the Social Services as funding in each state. The "made to order", false mental health diagnose were shortly thereafter with political tones. Bush Jr polished the crimes and atrocities under his presidency of mind drugging and other programs such as Teen Screen as dictated and directed by the ALEC for the New World Order. The Mental Health Industry is dangerous to the society.

Obama’s Preemption Memo: Limiting Regulatory Preemption of State Common Law Claims
By Matt Melamed, Public Justice Kazan-Wallace Fellow

On May 20, 2009, President Obama reversed one of the most nefarious practices of the Bush administration by issuing a memorandum (Preemption Memo) aimed at curbing federal preemption by regulatory fiat.

(The memorandum is available at .)

With the Preemption Memo, the President made clear his intent to limit federal agencies’ efforts to preempt state law claims merely by declaring that they would conflict with federal regulatory purposes. This position represents a radical shift from that taken by the Bush administration, which aggressively encouraged federal agencies to seek to preempt state tort law in precisely that fashion. For the first time in a long time, consumer advocates have an ally in the executive branch.

The Bush Administration’s Stealth Tort Reform Effort

The Preemption Memo is described more fully below. But its importance can only be understood against the backdrop of the Bush administration’s attempt to utilize federal agencies to implement stealth tort reform. Since 2005, seven federal agencies have issued over 60 proposed or final rules that were accompanied by introductory statements – commonly known as “preambles”– stating that the rule preempts state tort law on the ground that lawsuits involving the regulated matters would conflict with the agencies’ regulatory goals. See, e.g., Press Release, American Association for Justice, FOIAs Reveal How Bush Administration Made Complete Immunity for Negligent Corporations a Top Priority (Oct. 15, 2008), available at .

The most notorious example of this practice is the preamble to a 2006 United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling regulation, which states that the FDA’s approval of a prescription drug’s label “preempts conflicting or contrary State law,” including lawsuits seeking to hold drug manufacturers liable for failing adequately to warn of a drug’s dangers. 71 Fed. Reg. 3922, 3934-35 (2006). This preemption preamble was particularly egregious because it represented a 180-degree reversal of the FDA’s prior views on the matter: before the Bush administration took power, the FDA enthusiastically endorsed tort litigation as complementing the agency’s ability to ensure the safety of prescription drugs.(As discussed below, in Wyeth v. Levine, 129 S. Ct. 1187 (2009),the U.S. Supreme Court held that the 2006 labeling regulation’s preemptive preamble was not entitled to any deference.)

The intention behind this and other Bush-era preemption preambles is clear: by attempting to strip consumers of their rights to sue, the Bush administration was pandering to the business community, which seeks at all costs to immunize itself from tort liability. Indeed, Bush administration officials had an unusually close relationship with the industries they regulated. Again, the 2006 FDA labeling regulation is instructive. As first proposed, the preamble to the labeling regulation specifically stated that the FDA did not intend to preempt state law failure-to-warn claims. See Press Release, American Association for Justice, supra. Less than six months before issuing the final regulation, FDA’s chief counsel met with legal representatives from the largest pharmaceutical companies. Id. After the meeting, the preamble was changed to state that FDA approval of a drug label preempted state common law failure-to-warn claims.
