    Average Life Expectancy in the US Has Declined for a Second Year -- and Trump Is Not

    http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/4...get&id=0&data=

    Pollution, lack of access to health care, climate change disasters for which the government refuses to help; lack of money,lack of jobs and lack of affordable housing.

    And The Swamp Master and Deep State Wannabe Trumper could care less.
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.

    You missed the important reason. Immigration from third world countries...bringing in the poorest, dumbest, sickest people on the planet to live here at our expense.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Trum stopped immigration, remember? Lowered the numbers.

    Read the article...if you can. If not, let me know and I'll talk you through it.

    According to the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans can now expect to live 78.6 years on average -- a decline of 0.1 years for 2016 over the figures from 2015, which also represented a drop.That might not sound like a lot, but any decrease in life expectancy is a rare occurrence in a developed nation. In this case, it's the direct result of the opioid crisis that continues to ravage large swathes of the country.
    To put it in perspective, the last time there was a decline in life expectancy in the US was in 1993 at the height of the AIDS crisis -- and the last time there were two years of decline was 1962-63 as a result of a major flu epidemic.
    Worse, 2017 is on track to produce yet another decline in life expectancy, according to the National Center for Health Statistics' Bob Anderson. "We have data for almost half of 2017 at this point. It's still quite provisional, but it suggests that we're in for another increase" in drug-related deaths, Anderson told CNN. "If we're not careful, we could end up with declining life expectancy for three years in a row, which we haven't seen since the Spanish flu 100 years ago."
    Actually, seven of the top 10 leading causes of death in the US -- including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and influenza -- declined in 2016. But that was more than offset by a rise in deaths from Alzheimer's disease, suicide and "unintentional injuries" -- a category that includes drug overdose deaths.
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.

    Third World immigrants are a tiny part of the American population.

    This is a lie. Of course, you already know that, don't you?

    Right. We have imported about 50 million people from just about every country. Why?
