Re: we need to have this discussion as well! Probably too many big campaign donors for it to happen though!

In response to UserName99's comment:
The only problem with this analysis is that conservatives will undoubtedly block the increased mental health funding necessary to address the issue as vehemently as they fight against reasonable gun regulation.
Double the blood on your hands.
How about the massive unregulated use of these SSRI drugs by Big Pharma, which has been in bed with the Obama Administration since selling out for billions in loot under ObamaCare in 2009?
Those who have suicidal side effects from these drugs are 'collateral damage'. Dont expect the crooked Obama 'regulators" to pressure their cronies at Big Pharma.
Big Pharma now is practically a government entity...
On Friday House Republicans released more documents that expose the collusion between the health-care industry and the White House that produced ObamaCare, and what a story of crony capitalism it is. If the trove of emails proves anything, it’s that the Tea Party isn’t angry enough.
The business refrain in those days was that if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu. But it turns out Big Pharma was also serving as head chef, maître d’hotel and dishwasher. Though some parts of the story have been reported before, the emails make clear that ObamaCare might never have passed without the drug companies. Thank you, Pfizer.
According to the trove of e-mails that the WSJ published today, there appears to be a direct quid pro quo payoff to the drug companies for some badly-needed PR efforts on behalf of the administration, in exchange for limiting the amount that Congress would seize from drug companies.
Within the US, pharmaceutical firms which sense an opportunity to regularly sell drugs to the government at arbitrarily high prices support the nationalisation of the healthcare sector thus highlighting the fact that socialism and crony-capitalism go hand in hand. Today, the most expensive drugs are those that enjoy government protection and are listed as prescription drugs. It is common for the price of these drugs to dramatically fall by as much as ninety percent when they are recategorized as over-the-counter drugs and face competition in the marketplace
