Try comparing 2009 to 2015. Here is a larger version of the chart:



How do overdoses due to "synthetic opioids" aka fentanyl along with heroin, cocaine and meth have anything to do with the ACA? You do notice those are the only categories spiking in your graph.

Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid and in your graph although is rising does not have a parabolic shape.

So can you please explain the link between the spike in deaths by illegal drugs and Obama Care? I'm not seeing the link. Did Obama Care somehow make it easier to get illicit drugs?

The links have


Not going to pay to open the FT article but I'm guessing there is no link to the ACA made there.

What I do see in your links are Doctors getting paid by drug companies to prescribed drugs. I'm not seeing how the ACA is linked to that, other than more people having health care.

If we were to be honest, shouldn't we take away the monitary incentive for doctors to prescribe drugs instead of taking away health care from our citizens?

Please explain how the deaths of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tom Petty and Prince are linked to Obama Care?

If over prescription is happening why aren't we going after the Doctors who are doing so?

Note the conspicuous absence of marijuana from that chart.


And why the spike in cock, meth and H? Is it because they had been cut with Fentanyl and not properly categorized?

cock


Toothless women smoke cock to get Rock but what I meant to say is coke. Bob was right, that sure does peeve you.

Ok, here is a serious question, why do you blame Obama Care and not the doctors? It's the doctors who have been over prescribing oxycontin since the drugs first apperence. Shit, even Rush Limbaugh was addicted well before Obama care. So why don't you put the blame we're it's deserved? Is that an honest enough question.

Yes, more people have health care. Which means more people are able to have access to a prescription to Oxy. So your solution is to cut access to health care because some abuse the system?

The blame is on the drug companies. The doctors got sold a bill of goods as did the public. Some doctors were greedy bastards making out like bandits, but the vast majority were sincerely following what the drug company said was safe and effective treatment.


You are preaching to the choir. Though I think you let the doctos off a bit too easy. With all that training they can't see what is going on? That they we're being feed a bunch of shit?

curious2 says
BTW, don't let Bob distract you with fake numbers


Don't worry I won't. I get the issues with Obama care. Where is the evidence that deaths from fentanyl are happening to people on Obama Care or Medicaid expansion?

What you are asking is that I take your word for it. Remember you started here with a graph and the assertion that the spike in fentanyl ODs was because of Obama Care. Or is that not what you were alluding to? Irregardless ;-) that's what I took you to say.

Fentanyl is an opioid.


I know and it is the main cause of synthetic opioid deaths, which are not from prescribed fentanyl. My dog had a fentanyl patch and he didn't OD, like Bob said it's hard to OD from a patch. I'm guessing nearly all fentanyl death are from Illicit fentanyl, prove me wrong.

Why is 538 still saying +3.

What do you say we make a $100 bet. If it's 3 I win, if it's 5 you win, and 4 is a wash.

You're sure it's not 3 right ?

Yes positive it’s NOT 3. I’ll bet $1,000 it’s not 3.

Bet confirmed?


marcus says
Are you going to delete this is it is 3 ? Just wondering, becasue you are a republican. It seems kind of like something you might do.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not betting that is is three, but I will do the bet I said for $100. 3 I win, 5 you win, 4 neither of us win.

In a letter delivered to Barack Obama and George W. Bush and posted online Tuesday, Jones called for the former presidents to tour the country and help repair civil discourse amid political and social turmoil, which he said was emblematic in the government shutdown and fierce rhetoric over immigration.

“Recent news reports and events occurring around the country are widely creating civil unrest among the American citizens. The extreme divide between our Democrats and Republican parties needs to be rectified,” Jones wrote.

He continued: “The country needs the two of you to show the American people that our political parties can get along even if opinions differ. We are a great nation with a history of great leaders. The people need to hear from you. America needs your help.”

FACT, the president can't pass a budget unless it's been voted on and passed FIRST in the House and Senate.


So why the hold up by McConnell yesterday. When will the president realize he is President of a democracy not a dictatorship?

Devin Nunes—pathetic Donald Trump sycophant and yawningly corrupt California Republican congressman (in that order)—has been caught on tape telling GOP donors that keeping control of the House must be done for the express purpose of shielding the president from potential criminal prosecution.

His thesis is that the war on drugs resembles the Vietnam War in its futility and its collateral damage to Mexicans, more than 250,000 of whom have died and another 40,000 have disappeared, according to the Financial Times, in the past dozen years from violence associated with rivalrous cartels and law-enforcement measures. Those endless photos of confiscated sacks of drugs do resemble old photos of dead Vietcong -- body counts of replaceable bodies. El Chapo, 61, will die in a U.S. “supermax” prison, and his incarceration -- he has been in custody since 2016 -- will make no difference regarding drug flows.
