Life Expectancy in the U.S. Drops for First Time Since 1993

This is only going to get worse, as I discussed when the Obamacare Bill was before Congress.

Based on data from 2008, the latest available, life expectancy in the U.S. fell 36.5 days from 2007 to 77.8 years, according to the report released today.

“It’s hard for us to tell exactly what’s driving this,” said Arialdi Minino, a statistician at the health center and one of the report’s authors. The number of older people who died “has been going up consistently, and in this particular year, there was a little more of that than we usually see.”

Look, what's going on is that they have already been monkeying with treatments for those under medicare. If you think they haven't, well there's some fog I liked to sell you in San Francisco.

Once Obamacare starts to really kick in, the decline in life expectancy is going to be dramatic, and it will go way beyond Medicare patients. Health care is going to be a very unprofitable industry in the U.S., except for politically healthcare providers. It will suffocate the industry and result in many early deaths.

The only solution will be to stay healthy.
