This is in response to the story titled, “States likely to rethink mental health budgets.” I am very glad about that. Many centers were closed, and the poor people just turned out on the streets. That is a terrible way to treat people.

Rep. Dan Cooper, Republican chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, said, “There just wasn’t enough money to go around.” All politicians make me sick. There would be lots more money if they all took less salary, beginning with the president.
