  1. Admissions into state hospitals is not a random process in general.
    Some admissions are of people who suffer from behaviors diagnosed as a danger to them selves or a danger to others as a result of any number of behaviors complicated by substance abuse, mental illness, and inability to care for themselves.
    State hospital stays were usually 14 days certifications and then the patients were admitted to an appropriate facility of care, continued medical treatment plans. Today this may be a different matter.

  2. As a senior citizen who depends on social security and a small pension to live on, I am extremely worried about the things I have been hearing about stopping it and Medicare. I spent 50 years of my life working and paying into social security and now it feels like they want to take my money away. It’s not fair.

    • Concerns such as this are unwarranted. No one from any party is considering stopping SSA or Medicare. There are however, proposals meant to keep the system solvent. Of course if the country goes bust everything is in jeopardy.

      • You got to worry about the National Debt. Part of that Debt is owed to the Social Security Trust Fund as US Treasury Security. The Government is basically broke and has to borrow money every year. In 2020, there will be no more Social Security Trust Fund surplus and Social Security will have to cash in some of the Treasury Security Notes. The US Government is broke and would have to borrow even more to pay back some of the Social Security Trust Fund.

        Now if the US can’t borrow any more money, then the Social Security Trust Fund would be in trouble.

        The Democrats want to bankrupt the US Government with all these entitlement programs like the ACA and Medicaid expansion.

        Imagine how much Debt we would be in now if Bill Clinton didn’t limit welfare to 7 years.

        We need to lower the US Debt and protect Social Security. Then in 2034 when Social Security becomes insolvent, the US Government can borrow money to fix Social Security. Right now the US Government is going to become bankrupt before 2034.

        • You must understand history and civilization .We The People is the United States democracy between IRS and Social Security.We The People was brought from primitive civilization to Industrial civilization based on culture and diversity by the nature of God.When the Farmers created the Constitution ..The Notice of Public Concerns is _We the People of United States and Soveriognty Nations must stand fast and negotiate.What we have among the system is ours as well as employers indiginfying what that employer can produce for each employee.What’s the basic..insurance coverahe,payroll deductions, IRA rollovers, retirement , matching the medicare employee /employer contractual agreement as long as that employee remain employed.Please reviee history dating back from 1200-1500-1800-1900-2000-2016

      • Who is going to buy the Treasury Notes when the Social Security Trust Fund sell the notes. The Government can’t buy it back because it is broke and got to borrow money every year.

        When China and the other countries sell their US Treasury Security Notes before the Trust Fund does, the Trust Fund would be holding a worthless piece of paper.

        China has already dumped a bunch of US Treasury Security. If China dumped a bunch more, then no one would buy it and the other countries might start dumping theirs too. China is starting to invest their pension in the stock market instead of Government Bonds. We are investing our Social Security pension money into the broke Us Government who has to borrow money every year to stay afloat.

        The US Government is planning on cutting Social Security so they don’t have to pay back the money.

    • Dear Sir,Any individual who have created a tax rin comparisonecord to the Commission office of IRS and any equalivent agency of the government is entitled to receive there money whether is worker’s compensation,disability or su[pplemenatal assistance better known as SSI or susuvivorship is somehat different than money individual work for and it also carries different statues,rules and regulations.Please go to http://www.ssa.gov and read diferent format about the programs.There are many programs that individuals qualify for.

      • Yes ,The actionable response to social security clamaints is the due process of state regulations.If your state states processing time is 24 months then that’s two years of process and adjudication to retain a decision. All clamaints should be approved because the essential element is that producing evidence that is confirmed and it’s clear and convicing that meets the rules of listing between SubPt.A{adults} and SubPt.{B] children. The finally factor is that lawmakers and doctors experience the challenge through congress to legislate new medical conditions to those listing. The Board of Medical Doctors of Professionalism is the main course of SubPT.A /B ..and to the red book and blue book. If there is nay doubt that a clamaint condition doen’st meet the listing of impairments then it’s not adjudicated between neither book. The Board of Medical Profession must act on it.

  3. If we all write to our Congress Man, and express these concerns we are more likely to be with in hearing range than with the last Presidential Administration.
    We might want to give them some ideas on how they can replace the citizens monies that were ” barrowed” by a past President and never replaced our monies.

    As readily as Mr. Obama was able to pay Iraq $42 Million, they can just a quickly put our contributions back into our Social Security Account shall we say ?

  4. Very concerned about the on going “rumblings” within presidential elect Trump campaign staff re: privatizing Medicare & Social Security. Hopefully, this is not true
    but will be waiting to see and/or hear something more concrete as to how this will work. Will have to wait & see??

    • Hello Ernie. If you are having difficulties with your personal my Social Security account, please call 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. After you hear “Briefly tell me why you are calling,” say “Help Desk” for help with a my Social Security account. Sometimes, it might be best to visit your local Social Security office for further assistance.

  5. I opine that the last thing most of us think about between the holidays is social security. This is another waste of taxpayers dollars. Good grief, can’t you make better use of your time?

  6. Better use of time is to make the government system stand up and not out.That includes better healthcare,and making sure that the social security forum keeps its profile as being one of the largest independent government within the states and nations.It keeps its profile when people can beneft from employment and benfits.That’s how the government works-everyone should have DOT..if you know what that that mean-Today the elderly is beginning to become just as powerful as the younger and middle age generation because of changing rise of inflation to live.They remain to keep their DOT or employment status pass 72 some citizens and they money become tax free and they become more eligible for different programs. So don’t let small things worry you nor Truimp being President because he must make the ball bounce as equal opportunity ……

  7. Trumph as President is like any other man.That is to do his job as One Nation Under God abided by the Constitution.Who is the President in your state that must report to the National United States President. Well,I’ll tell you…Governor is your state president that report to main president based on the needs of state and federal budgets that covers all resources and programs..even to making a request of changes. So don’t criticize Trumph-because its an action of agreeing.Please take a legislative course so whom ever post comments to better understand the democfracy between Republican,Democrats,Governors,Vice-President and State Representatives.They all have to connect the dots .So Trumiph is the pRES. FOR the better or worse.I look at it like this…they scorn OBAMA..and he probably saying I made it to the Finish line,so move on but I guarantee you he is one smart man and will probably remain a part of the White House him and his Lovely Wife ..Michelle.It’s new year approach…..2017 and healthcare is the main agemda..because don’t nobody want to die and we want to have the best of care to live as long as we can without sublte pain until God have thrown the last or final word…Yes there are privatization in all medicare and Medicaid cases for all people. That’s much as I can say…We cover as if you go to the store and buy a garmet or OTC .so don’t worry.Every plan is done by experience educators.Have Faith and Beleive

  8. If the government is not able to take care of the taxpayers money, let the taxpayers take care of their own needs by stopping the taxes taken out of their hard earned money. The government has many intelligent people working for them, they need to use their common sense and make the system work.

  9. I would like to know how taking away a person’s disability status when they be come eligible for social security due to age is helping the disabled. Do you realize you are taking away benefits from us when you do that (ie. housing, employer insurance to name a few). This is even though you say our status did not change, we have nothing to show that in writing

  10. If social security goes private. They better open up a lot of homeless shelters. If social security leaves it to the people to manage there retirement then they’ll need even more homeless shelters
