 how about a source for the GRAPH.  Also, this idea that your care access to care will diminish based on your age is not accurate.

Well, we are talking about mental health here right? Something needs to be done about this. And by that I mean too many people are walking into the docs office saying they are depressed and getting prescriptions for drugs that turn them into zombies. This is a very common trend with folks in their 20s-30s and those same folks (not all but a lot) like to take these pills, drink, and get behind the wheel of a car. Or you can nix the drinking and it's still just as bad behind the wheel. Before anyone argues, almost everyone in my family has been on some sort of anti-depressant, my mother throughout most of my childhood. If the main side effect of these drugs is "suicidal thoughts" it needs to be evaluated whether the patient truly needs the drugs and if the risks will outweigh the benefits.

Now, the drug companies have a lot to gain from this, which is why they are constantly advertising all of these depression drugs. There needs to be a major decrease of the amount of anti-depressants that are being handed out to people. Life is rough but there can't be that many depressed people.

You mention a SUIT sitting behind a desk at the white house, what about the suits sitting behind desks right now making a ridiculous amount of money off of America's drug dependency? Either way there's a suit involved, the color of the suit is irrelevant, I want to know what that suit has to gain and how many suits are getting a piece of the pie as well.

you read SLOWER and provide a link

BTW...reading your post for the third time, it's horribly written.  You realize that insurance companies already determine cost over benefit in determining what medications and services they will cover?

Here's your source for the graph since it seems you are one of the few people to have not seen it. It also comes complete with the entire article.
