Posted by Label56 in Blog | Politics

“Dat Legacy” is the series we`ve done exposing scandals from “the only president to have never had a scandal”. You can read previous posts here. Today`s post has to do with the opiod crisis and it`s explosion under 44`s presidency and especially after the implementation of obamacare. It`s become a pretty well known claim that the CIA pushed crack cocaine into black neighborhoods during the Contra war in Nicaragua. It would be interesting to do an investigation into the opiod crisis in white neighborhoods under Obama. As stated in a report released Wednseday by the Council of Economic Advisers, they noted that the increase in opioid-related deaths exploded around the same time as the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. You can read the report on the Whitehouse site here.

The opiod crisis is also draining America`s workforce. As stated hereThere are nearly 6 million job openings in the U.S. and the unemployment rate, at 4.1%, is at a 17-year low. But the share of people working or looking for work still hasn’t recovered from before the recession. Part of the problem: The rise in abuse of prescription painkillers, partially responsible for the 64,000 drug overdose deaths in 2016, has incapacitated thousands of working-age people whom employers would otherwise be eager to hire.”
