This policy change on its face makes no sense. It is a reprise of the deinstitutionalization fiasco of the 60s and 70s. So follow the money. This is Obamacare in action. Facilities for the seriously mentally ill, with 24/7 supervision, are very expensive. "community homes," which will quickly become unsafe and unsanitary garbage dumps, not nearly as much.
This is the Obama philosophy: Save the money, let them loose, and if they die, they die. It does not account for those who survive long enough to be readmitted to psych hospitals, only to go around the track one more time.

You got that right. This is the result of ObamaCare on its face. Look for more and more groups of citizens to be thrown over the side for a measure of “cost cutting”.
The fools that re-elected him from the taker class will be the first ones under the millstone.
