Ted Kennedy and mental health care

Posted Aug 26 2009 10:19pm
As flawed as he was, the real, true hope for mental health parity came, and went, with the late Massachusetts Sen. Edward "Ted" Kennedy.

Though Congress passed mental health parity into law, it's useless legislation for the millions of Americans who don't have health insurance. Many of those have a mental illness that prevents them from having a job with a stable income, and a house with running water.

The only hope rests with the Obama administration, and if it can carry the torch - and emphasize the importance of having health care for all - from the man who once famously declared that the "dream shall never die."
