It was Pres. Reagan that forced them out on to the streets around 1985.
Time to start hospitalizing them again. IMO
Bull Crap. Reagan wanted to reform the hospitals, not close them. The Democrat controlled congress forced closure on him. The move to close them started by a 60 Minutes episode by Geraldo Rivera on the Willowbrook mental hospital called "Willowbrook: the Last Great Disgrace". This started a big movement by liberals and the ACLU to shut all of these hospitals down. When Reagan was governor of California, the liberals held the budget over his head in exchange to close them down. Reagan's proposal was to just reform the system. It was liberals who shut them down.
Dear Mr. Jack Hydrazine,
Get your facts straight.
Reagan was President some 15 years AFTER the liberoids of the 1960’s pushed through de-institutionalization including Supreme Court findings that the mentally ill did not need to take medication until they are imminently dangerous.
You can thank left-wing progressives for the fact that mentally ill people like Adam Lanza are able to carry out their disturbed malevolence.
Not only did President Reagan have nothing to do with this, he was nearly assassinated by one such mentally ill young man.
Wow... You would think before posting such an outrageous libtard lie you would actually at minimum check your premise...at that thing called the Internet.....
... Unless you are a troll...
