(Natural News) To hear hysterical Democrats say it, any attempt at health care reform by the GOP is equivalent to “killing Americans.” In their delusional world — which has long since abandoned anything resembling reason or reality — the Obamacare system saved lives and killed no one, while a Republican-run system would be the equivalent of the mass murder of Americans. Seriously, this is the dark rhetoric now being spewed by Democrats whose words achieve nothing other than inspiring psychopathic left-wing killers to gun down Republican congressmen on a baseball field.
Yet the sobering truth is that for as long as the U.S. “sick care” system has been dominated by pharmaceutical interests, it has been killing Americans by the hundreds of thousands per year.
Right now, prescription drugs kill well over 100,000 Americans per year, even when properly prescribed. The more honest number is likely over 200,000 per year once you consider the opioid epidemic, which is now killing more people than all gun-related deaths and shootings combined.
A statistical analysis reveals that prescription drugs are 16,400% more deadly than terrorists, and iatrogenic deaths — deaths caused by doctors, hospitals and drugs — had already reached 783,000 per year over a decade ago (source: “Death by Medicine” PDF), which is the equivalent of multiple jumbo jet airliners dropping out of the sky every single day, filled with hundreds of passengers each.
Somehow, Democrats have decided that none of these deaths count. Nope, all the people who died under Obama’s health care fiasco are forgotten and swept under the rug. It’s only the people who die after the Republicans take over the health care system that will be counted, you see. And so the same Democrats who bent over backwards to argue that Obama’s health care system was the best system in the world — a system that “saved lives” through “treatment” with dangerous prescription medications — will flip the script and argue that the GOP’s health care reforms suddenly transform America’s health care system into a murderous, heartless regime… a “killing fields” of bad medicine that causes the mass death and suffering of as many people as possible as a means to fulfill the dark, evil hearts of Republicans who are seething with hatred, we’re told.
