Republicans don't want to help the mentally ill. They live in protected environments and don't care if criminals kill each other and innocent bystanders. They won't care until it spills into their neighborhoods. Oops! Just did, didn't it? But, still, nobody wants to help with mental health care. Nope. They want to leave the most unstable out there to prey on the rest of us.
And, what if you're wrong, and crimes involving those kinds of weapons DO decline? Would it then be worth it? Why don't we find out if new mandatory background checks for purchase, and an end to the flood of assault weapons being sold that probably DO go out of this country to supply insurgents and Al Qaeda operatives and cartel drug dealers, etc. could make a difference in the stats? Could you draw a line in the sand if we resumed the ban we had before? Could you compromise there and with high capacity magazines? If you could, I'll get behind you if there are any further intrusions or suggestions we should ban more. A one time only deal.

First, Republicans have been on record as wanting and planning to overturn the ACA under a Romney presidency. It didn't happen, but the intent has been made clear. Overturning the ACA would put millions out of the loop for mental health care of any kind. I may not be satisfied with the degree and scope of the ACA, but it sure beats a blank, and as of this moment, I've not heard from the Republicans any plan that would replace or improve what we have to date. Next, let's return to the wealthy in Congress (both parties) who are oblivous to the predicament of low wage and middle class Americans in need of health care (including mental health services):

Report: Nearly Half Of Congress, 67% Of Senate Are Millionaires
by Frances Martel | 10:14 am, November 20th, 2011

http://www.mediaite.com/online/report-nearly-...

...According to the study, though, 110 Democrats and 140 Republicans in Congress are millionaires.

What’s more, the numbers are conservative, since the top income bracket for their spouses is listed as “$1 million or more,” and the financial disclosure forms don’t include assets like the personal home of a member of Congress......(cont.)

Millionaire Freshmen Make Congress Even Wealthier
By Communications on January 16, 2013

Ninety-four new senators and House members joined the 113th Congress. But if voters felt the last group of lawmakers was out of touch with "real America," the new class may not be better. In fact, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, the median estimated net worth of the incoming freshmen is almost exactly $1 million more than that of the typical American household.(cont.)

Beyond Gun Control: Republicans Routinely Sabotage Mental Health And Police Budgets

Dozens of States Rethink Recent Mental Health Budget Cuts

The reversal is especially jarring in statehouses dominated by conservative Republicans, who aggressively cut welfare programs but now find themselves caught in a crosscurrent of pressures involving gun control, public safety and health care for millions of disadvantaged Americans.

Some republican lawmakers are getting the message and reversing course, but the simple truth is that GOP politicians have led a concerted effort nationwide to cut mental health care funding.

Offended? By you? Not in the least. That'd be like getting upset by the crying baby in the airline seat behind me. Children do what they do and say what they say. It's all babbling, poopy diapers and spit bubbles. That's what I usually get from your Topix post. Nothing to get upset about though. You obviously speak as would millions of other ObamaZombies. I understand that.
Balance? Oh, you mean mixing some stupid liberal nonsense into my eloquent logic & rational thinking? Sorry, can't do that. That would be dishonest.
However, if by balance you mean admitting that Obama did not cause all of our problems by himself? I've done that over & over & over & over & over.(I think I just did it again! Happy now?)
But there's a big difference between somebody who makes a bad mistake and someone who repeats a bad mistake, especially if that second person does it with full knowledge of the first person's error. It's even worse if the second person also doubles-down on the severity of the mistake.
That would be Obama and our debt. That's because we all agree that he did NOT get us there alone, right? Which means that he MUST know about our past mistakes, right?
That is reality. That's how the time proceeds, with the past first, then the present, then the future. We can do nothing about the past, only learn from it. What we can do, we do NOW. That in turn affects our future. Get it? Obama is responsible to know our past and act NOW to guard our future. If he does not, he is foolish like a child, because children know little of the past, nor can they forsee the future.
Or maybe by "balance" you mean add some TRUE brilliance to the conversation? Ok, here goes:
The fact that we are where we are today due to our rising debt is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here". Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
Great stuff, huh? Much better than the crap you post, NTR! I think the above paragraph is some of the best stuff I've posted so far. Don't you? I am a brilliant writer and a f*cking genius! LOL! You agree? They should chisel what I just wrote above the door to the Senate. Or maybe even the White House!
Eloquent? You?

Yawn.

Are you ever nice when you speak, Jax? You always come across as angry and condescending. Something you actually think you are entitled in how to treat others. You can't deny many anonymous people have told you as much in a very short period of time.

They are only "idiotic posts" cause you can't control or refute them. You are nothing but a controlling internet b!tch. How's that working for your cuase? Fix any prolems yet? Or are guns diverting you away from the real issues? Seems like Obama doesn't like you either. He knows how to divert problem people. lmao.
Ya beter get back to your notes and get focused on... hmmmm.. Do you even know what the issue is that is troubling you?
Yeah, I didn't think so..........

So much for your previous registered accounts claims of being a man of integrity & personal accountability. She said to fk off... that's not an invitation to continue harassing & stalking her.

You may all cut & paste my magnificent post above to any forum you please. You can even claim it as your own.
boo hoo... you are so mean... I should not have to actually reply to a post... boo hoo... I hate having to answer a smart post... it makes me itchy...

I must pray:

"Lord Obama, who art in White House, hollow be thy name,
La La land come, thy will be done,
though we shred the Constitution,
Give us this day our daily free sh*t,
and forget our ginormous debt,
As we forget our kids & grandkids.
Lead us not into the temptation to doubt thee,
but deliver us from common sense & logic."

Amen
