The Democrat party has struggled with a bad case of “rampant hypocrisy” for several decades now.
But the passing of the GOP’s American Health Care Act has brought out the worst in them.
Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Bernie Sanders have claimed that the Republican’s repeal of Obamacare will end up “killing” U.S. citizens en masse.
However, the unfortunate truth they’re overlooking is that Obamacare is already “killing” Americans — for the first time in two decades, life expectancy in the United States has declined.
Data from the National Center for Health Statistics showed a drop for men from 76.5 years in 2014 to 76.3 in 2015, and from 81.3 to 81.2 for women.
The preliminary figures show rises in several causes of death, especially heart disease, dementia and accidental infant deaths.
Life expectancy last fell during the peak of the HIV/Aids crisis in 1993.
“This is unusual,” lead author Jiaquan Xu, an epidemiologist at the NCHS, told AFP news agency. “2015 is kind of different from every year. It looks like much more death than we have seen in the last few years.”
