Video: Pelosi: It’s Cheaper to Treat Teens for Drug Use Than Interdict Drugs at Border

My comments: The conventional wisdom is that prevention is better than cure, a stitch in time saves nine. However, Democrats think that cure is better than prevention. It may be cheaper, but it is not better. But their values are messed up. They only pretend to care about people. Here's the text and an excerpt from http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/65419

(CNSNews.com) - While pointing out that it is the responsibility of the federal government to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said Thursday it is cheaper to treat teens for drug use than it is to interdict drugs being smuggled across the border.

Pelosi: "Okay, so let’s, you know, let’s secure our border for every reason that we have responsibility to do so, but if it’s talk, if our purpose is to solve that problem, we must reduce demand and the best way to do that is through prevention and through treatment on demand."
