Thanks, Obama: American Life Expectancy Drops For First Time In Decades

He doubled the trillions-of-dollars debt, oversaw the the most tepid economy since the Great Depression, allowed ISIS to spread across the globe, and deeply divided Americans against Americans.

Now we find out that during the Age of Obama, U.S. life expectancy has fallen for the first time in decades. 

Via an NPR report :

“This is a big deal,” says Philip Morgan, a demographer at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill who was not involved in the new analysis.

“There’s not a better indicator of well-being than life expectancy,” he says. “The fact that it’s leveling off in the U.S. is a striking finding.

…Most notably, the overall death rate for Americans increased because mortality from heart disease and stroke increased after declining for years. Deaths were also up from Alzheimer’s disease, respiratory disease, kidney disease and diabetes. More Americans also died from unintentional injuries and suicide. In all, the decline was driven by increases in deaths from eight of the top 10 leading causes of death in the U.S.”

What an achievement! Eight out of the top 10 leading causes of death have increased under Obama. The economy, jobs, etc., go down while death and crime rates go up, and Obamacare takes over our healthcare system.

Lovely.

The last time life-expectancy rates dropped in America was during the 1990’s when AIDS and a particularly bad flu season hit, leaving us to wonder what the medical procedure is for surviving the ills of eight years of Barack Obama?
