ObamaCare’s Unexpected Savings

ObamaCare which I now call ObamaKill may have gotten a reprieve.

Who knew that Obama had a “back door,” an unexpected saving that I’m sure wasn’t predicted. It appears that some people aren’t planning on ever using ObamaKill and are opting out early.

I’m not talking about what Congress, the Unions, and other high profile Liberals are doing. I’m talking “hari kari.”

According to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there has been a stunning increase in the suicide rate among middle-aged Americans. Suicide has become a growing public health concern in the U.S. The analysis looked at data compiled over a little more than a decade, a period ending in 2010 that included the financial crisis and the great recession.

In 2010, there were more suicides in the U.S., 38,000-plus, than there were fatal motor vehicle accidents.   In what might be the only statistic where whites are worse off under Obama, one of the biggest spikes is among the middle-aged, a 28 percent rise overall, with a 40 percent jump among white Americans. Suicide among men in their 50s increased by more than 48 percent.

Guns remained the leading method used in all suicides, followed by poisoning, overdoses and suffocation.   Dr. Thomas Frieden, the director of the CDC says he’s not sure what the culprit is. That’s because the culprit is not a what, but a “who.”

Financial stress is the major culprit, and Obama has certainly given the nation the necessary triggers there.
