    can. Harry Reid has seen to that. They don't want to spend the money helping people, and now they won't.

      There are enough Republicans saying things about Mental Healthcare that this might just be the vehicle they can ride to show that they are willing to revert the rescinding of Carter's healthcare initiatives in the '80's that can be directly attributed to at least five shootings and other violent acts since then.

      This is the sort of change that our country needs to allow those who need help or care for those who need help to get their needs met.  Kudos on this to the Senators.
