Yep the left loves to remind us that Reagan closed the mental hospitals. They just don’t like to remind us that it was them who wanted him to do it.
The left may have wanted it, but Reagan had possession of the veto pen, didn’t he? I’m a strong lover of RR, but this as well as the amnesty were 2 very foolish things he did as president. None of them is perfect, and RR was probably the best we have had in decades, but he, wasn’t perfect either.
I believe it was teddy kennedy who beat the drum the loudest for closing the mental hospitals. I think some research on this is in order
