    Ms. Labrea,

    8 years of Obama handing out welfare like candy had it consequences.

    Like I said, perhaps the schools that the middle class attended in their formative years failed to accentuate things that actually help negotiate life, like financial competence.

    Mr. KK

    35+ years of Reagan's corporate welfare spree had much more substantial consequences than social welfare.

    Major depression is on the rise among Americans from all age groups, but is rising fastest among teens and young adults, new health insurance data shows.

    Depression rates also vary a lot state by state, with Rhode Island having the highest rate of depression at 6.4 percent. Hawaii has the lowest rate — 2.1 percent.

    The findings cover people with commercial health insurance — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — so they’re not fully representative. But most people in the U.S. are covered by a commercial health plan.

    Any idea why depression is on the rise?
    i dont think depression is on the rise at all.... depression is the same as it has always been.

    Now it is just more normal. Depression isnt something people are trying to hide anymore. I think people are now using depression as an excuse to act out and behave badly.... and get away with it.

    Doesnt explain the 8 years under Bush does it.

    Or perhaps youre suggesting that Obama's influence on the economy is retroactive?

    Ms. Labrea,

    The labor participation rate was statistically the same under President Bush as it was under President Clinton.

    Perhaps you should do your homework before making such ridiculous statements.

    There will always be a segment of the population that is incompetent/weak, just like there will always be a 1%. Not sure what it has to do with the great depression. The real question is whether or not we want to grow said segment through poor education and public subsidies.
