Gregg Abbott blames Mass Shootings on Mental Health. So, why not Aid in Helping it?
The scape goat is obvious and blatantly clear...
The literal hometown idiot… Days after an 18-year-old kid massacred 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas governor Gregg Abbott continued his push against the mass shootings occurring due to a lack of focus on mental health. He also deflects the fact that it may be a thing of easy gun access in America as well.
“We as a state - we as a society - need to do a better job with mental health. Anybody who shoots somebody else has a mental health challenge. Period. We as a government need to find a way to target that mental health challenge and do something about it.”
Gregg Abbott said.
The problem with the whole facade being put on by Abbott is that he previously cut nearly $211 Million from the Health and Services Commission. This commission’s main responsibility is overseeing mental health services in the state of Texas. Abbott has diverted the funds to send National Guard to the Texas-Mexico border, currently known as Operation Lone Star.
The prevalence of mental illness in Texas ranks the state 4th. It is also the last of all 50 states in access to mental health care, according to the State of Mental Health in American report. So Gregg Abbott… How in the world does it make sense you continuously drag concern to mental health, even with a track record of never caring abt the topic? Abbott continues - yes, even now - to attribute the issue to mental health and specifically not to gun access or violence.
“You can expect a robust discussion, and my hope is laws passed, that I will sign, addressing health care in this state. There is an array of healthcare issues that we face as a state in general but there are an array of healthcare issues that relate to those who commit gun crimes in particular. Those need to be addressed,” Abbott said. “... If there’s anybody here who thinks we have perfect health care in this country or in this world - they’re wrong. If there’s anybody who thinks we can’t do more to address mental health care - they’re wrong. We can and we’re going to.”
Greg Abbott said.
