and apparently so did the Dems since they had the majority it both Chambers! hahahhahUm the President can't defund things unilaterally.....nor does he have control over State budgets, that fund state mental health hospitals.I did’t say he was. I said lefties have destroyed this country. Lefties have defunded mental hospitals since the 1970’s, and their culture war has created millions more with mental issues.There are too many mentally ill misfits. Leftwingers have destroyed this country:
A police report obtained by WTHR shows authorities were called to Hole's home in March last year to detain him after he allegedly voiced suicidal ideas after buying a shotgun 24 hours earlier. In that incident, the report said police, who later took Hole to hospital, had 'seized shotgun from dangerous person'.
FBI Indianapolis Special Agent in Charge Paul Keenan told a reporter for Fox59 that 'the suspect's mother contacted law enforcement to report he might try to commit 'suicide by cop'.'
How do you know this guy was a "lefty"?
Reagan defunded mental hospitals because at the time they believed that the mentally ill could be discharged with a prescription.
I think what you might be referring to is the Mental Health Systems Act of 1980, signed by Carter....which provided some federal grants...the Dem Congress in 1981, passed the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, which repealed most of the Act.
This young man under Indy law could have been been committed, involuntarily...and lost his gun rights...the police, under the leadership of the Dem Mayor did not attempt to do that even after his mother called them
The Republicans backed Reagan.
Mental Health Systems Act of 1980 - Wikipedia
The Mental Health Systems Act of 1980 (MHSA) was United States legislation signed by President Jimmy Carter which provided grants to community mental health centers. In 1981 President Ronald Reagan and the U.S. Congress repealed most of the law. The MHSA was considered landmark legislation in mental health care policy.
What's your point? The Dem Congress passed the bill!
