‘Last Week Tonight With John Oliver’ Takes On Mental Health

John Oliver explains that repairing America’s system of dealing with the mentally ill is by no means an easy task, as it involves several different services throughout the country including Medicaid, a mixed bag of federal agencies that administer more than a hundred different programs, and each state’s social-service agencies.

It’s pretty sad that after tragedies such as mass shooting in Oregon last week, politicians pay lip service to the problems with mental-health services, but John Oliver was able to take the entire system down in just over 10 minutes.

It’s clear he’s incensed on the issue; it would be nice if finger-pointing politicians felt the same way.
