  •  Managed Care LOVES Greyhound Therapy (10+ / 0-)

    Managed Care HATES the mentally ill.

    I hate managed care.

    Managed care fucks up absolutely everything and causes a condition that is rampant in this country particularly with regards to mental health: ANYTHING BUT THE RIGHT THING.

    That's what happens in mental health in the 21st Century.

    That clearly reflects the larger ANYTHING BUT THE RIGHT THING reality that IS our "government" or "That roadblock in DC where nothing occurs".

    Did I mention how much I hate managed care?

    •  Republicans hate the mentally ill too (7+ / 0-)

      The mentally ill are poor and cannot contribute to their re-elections.

      The mentally ill are poor and on SSDI - repubs hate that.

      The mentally ill cant buy things and are useless eaters weighing down the system that they don't want to exist anyway.


    •  They can be billed for that. (5+ / 0-)

      In college, I took a course in the Social Dynamics of Poverty. One of the things the professor said was that few Southern states shipped their poor out to Northern States (or at least didn't get their fingerprints on the practice) because they could be billed by the antipoverty agencies in the receiving states.

      I can't imagine that they don't do the same for the mentally ill.

      The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
