Drop in life expectancy

This does not surprise me. In part, our inadequate health care system is to blame. We are our own worse enemies.

Kellyanne Conjob is working on the opioid crisis. She fired, however, all the professionals on the drug czar's staff.

President Donald Trump’s war on opioids is beginning to look more like a war on his drug policy office.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has taken control of the opioids agenda, quietly freezing out drug policy professionals and relying instead on political staff to address a lethal crisis claiming about 175 lives a day. The main response so far has been to call for a border wall and to promise a "just say no” campaign.

Control of mostly red state, Trump-supporting population. Their base is dying, and they want to build a wall.
