It's an extremely complicated issue. What would you suggest?<quoted text>
So why does medical insurance, Medicare, and Obamacare continue to pay for mental health services?
Are you suggesting we shoot all the psychiatrists?
Sounds like Realtime has some real anger here.
The Republicans want to cut medicaid and medicare; but rightwingers like Carol continue to say "Obama must do something about the mentally ill"; ok, what? Lock up everyone who acts a little odd? Who will pay for this wholesale warehousing of people?
We already do this through the criminal justice system; we have more people in prison than any other country.
Psychiatrists prescribe drugs; these drugs often make the person worse; no one knows what to do.
