NC 43rd in USA re: Per-Capita Annual Mental Health Spending

.....I'd say that the Republicans had met their 'quota' re: defunding mental health care in NC.....but will they be satisfied w/ that? Don't count on it. As the NYT today indicates, the Dems and Republicans are hung up (or more correctly stated, the Republicans insist) on the defunding of Planned Parenthood, where millions of women have received billions of birth control pills to prohibit millions of pregnancies over the past 40 years. I know: I was of those women. I called Congressman Shuler's office today and his aide indicated that he voted 'for' the other sticking point which is the Clean Air environmental issues (seems like the western NC environmentalists are better organized that the women).....and he voted against the continued funding of Planned Parenthood. (head banging time)....
