    A bill to create community behavioral health centers, super interesting. Do you know if anything came out of the proposal? This would not only offer support to people who can't afford health care, but it could also potentially obstruct death.

    I lived in Los Angeles when the state dismantled the public health care system. Since then L.A. has seen flu pandemic, increase of untreated mental health and increase in homelessness. This is what happens when public health issues are not attended to. History has revealed cutting basic public health, allowing large segments of our population to remane in poverty and not meeting the basic needs of Americans aggravates theses issues. Now after decades of neglect our society is in dire need of support. As was evident in Chile, when neoliberal economics was introduced, public support was eliminated. After Chile kicked out Milton Freeman and the Chicago Boys the country had to reinstate all the social programs, increase worker pay, rebuild public health clinics and reinstate unemployment insurance to mention a few. To restore the country to its pre-neoliberal status chile had to undo every thing the neoliberals did. We are now faced with similar situation. Now it will cost the US more to rebuild our public health system than it would to maintain it.
