#1 There is a reason this development will be announced in Atlanta, but you knew that already.

#2 Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would announce the action during a speech in Atlanta

#3 Yes, throngs of crazed, cheering, clapping 'do'in nothing else today' attendees, and a totally compliant local PD comprised of 'my people'. What's not to like. Please, just keep it all in Fulton County.

#4 Done right, this could have a net positive effect, even on cost, but of course it won't be done right.

#5 So when pot is legalized/decriminalized are potheads considered addicts or just a shamanistic/holistic medical population?

#7 Just wondering - about two years ago it seemed that every other day the Administration was floating up one nanny state / leftwing policy proposal after another, a stretch that went on for a few weeks, then kind of tapered off. Some of these policies were shot down like the shit they were but others became law / policy.

Looks like the same pattern's emerging again (trans fat ban, 'sweeping' HHS rules).

#8 Not to worry, most major insurance companies like the one I work for already have mental health coverage. Clinical information submitted by the providers must meet medical criteria or it gets denied. And all the major insurers have been getting more and more tight with the inpatient hospitalizations as well as outpatient coverage. I am a psychiatric RN.

#9 Psych RN? More money and biz for you, I'd think. Got a grandniece talking about psych as her area when she grads with her ADN down in Texas (already has acceptance lined up from TWU or Texas Tech for the BSN continuation). How's the job market for new grads? She has all but one class as an A, which I understand is quite an achievement for RN school.

#11 OK, so is HHS making thinking like a conservative, a libertarian, or questioning authority into a mental illness? All the better to start off the gulags ...
