One might be race. Another might be his location and the economic class of his patients. Another might be the funding of regulatory agencies and investigator caseloads.
I remember a horrific foster care case in Florida a few years ago where they discovered that caseloads were so bad for social workers, that if it would take them ten years to visit all their cases at twenty a day, no matter how many complaints came in. And the focus of the media attack on that case ended up being the social worker responsible for that foster home on her caseload - not the funding, not the politicians, not the system, not the politics.
Well there is that media bias you liberals always claim doesn't exist......the media was never going to trash an incompetent government funded program
when the government gets involved in ****, it becomes a part of the budget, and sooner or later you run out of other people's money to fund their involvement, and the budget gets cut......
But we still have morons who think there won't be any problems whatsoever funding anything other government intrusion in our lives like affordable health care.
