As a counseling psychologist and chief of vocational rehabilitation and counseling for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, I counseled many white, service-connected veterans for more than 33 years — and never once heard anyone from this population suggest they were entitled to anything. Granted, some white people may feel entitled by birthright, but tell that to the white majority that makes up the largest percentage, by race, on the poverty index and homeless population in California and New York.

The public has no understanding of mental illness in this country. How can we keep our wits about us when members of Congress are losing theirs?
