Republican politicians are trying to fool the American public right into thinking they're doing something regarding the opioid epidemic. They're just making it even worse. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, go over. Inform us just what you think in the remark section listed below.

" The U.S.A.'s addiction crisis is the defining public wellness obstacle of our time. In 2015, greater than 52,000 Americans passed away of drug overdoses, the bulk pertaining to opioids– far more compared to died from vehicle crashes. Greater than 20 million Americans cope with substance usage conditions, leading to immeasurable suffering for people as well as families as well as costing our country an astonishing $442 billion in healthcare prices, lost productivity and also criminal justice costs.

Unfortunately, the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) passed by your house would certainly be a major action backward in resolving the addiction epidemic in America, as well as the Us senate is on the very same hazardous course.

Wherever I traveled as cosmetic surgeon basic, from Corrosion Belt cities to remote Alaskan angling villages, I saw the toll of addiction on people and families who fought with treatment lacks and the loss of enjoyed ones to opioid overdoses. These tales compelled me to introduce the Turn the Trend Rx effort to boost opioid prescribing and also to release the first Cosmetic surgeon General's Report on Alcohol, Medications, as well as Health and wellness in 2016." *.

      What about the Crack Cocaine and Meth Addictions?

      Alcohol? more than 80k people from alcohol related deaths in the US each year.
      way more statistically than during prohibition.

      Jimmy Ok, I agree Afghanistan and opium is shaddy as hell, but you can’t expect the average voter to follow politics that closely. They see drugs in their communities. They see Mexico, once the top destination for American tourists, in the middle of a decade long gang war over the right to get drugs into the U.S. They vote for the guy who promised a wall between their communities and those suppliers. They don’t really care who supplies the suppliers.

    Most drug addicts are of the dark variety. So I guess that’s a positive. Just saying. 🙂

      +quax  “Opioids”. Not drugs like heroin and meth..     You doin`t know what you are talking about.   Opioids are a white drug.   Loop “opiopids”.   Google it.

      You’re just bitter because you know Melanoma Trump is way out of your league. Besides, she still has all her teeth and she’s not related to you, so she’s probably not your type.

    they seem to be ok with 23,000,000 million Americans losing their health care, so why would they give a crap about those with drug addiction?

    • Posted by Dumdumdumdum Dum, at Reply

      They don’t but have to seem like they care. Some of their voters have kids addicted to opioids. Where I live it’s definitely getting a hold of the white kids. High schoolers. My town mostly voted for Trump.smh It’s sad seeing young kids selling their body for drugs.

      @Jamie – In their minute minds, as long as “Black” people and other non-pale people suffer then it is all worth it. The cost of white supremacy/racial terrorism often leaves many “whites” with an empty bag and a growing hole in their pockets. When some realize that they cut off their noses to spite their faces, they become angry, disillusioned and shift blame to Black people and others for their plight. And the cycle continues.

    No, but LEFT WINGERS are trying to Kill Republicans, as we all just witnessed at the baseball practice the other day.

      NickTheGreatAndPowerful and more proof that leftists are murdering thugs that want to KILL PEOPLE who don’t agree with them.. TYT has already inspired several people to go out and murder people, looks like YOU may soon be joining them. Thanks for making my point.

      hey johnny boy. ever heard of gabrielle giffords and ryan leo and robert kennedy. Think before you say some really hypocritically stupid that right wingers don’t do the same because i just named 3 and there are plenty more . 10 to 1 republicans commit more political violence compared to liberals.

    • Posted by Johnny the Boy, at Reply


      Gabrielle Giffords, of course, she was shot and wounded by Jarrod Lee Laughner in an attack that killed 6 people. Left wing media immediately painted him as a right winger because Giffords was a liberal. Those who bothered to look at Laughner life found that friends of him described him as anything but a right winger, one said he was a liberal. So it cannot be ascribed that he leaned one way or another, but that he was very disturbed,

      Ryan Leo? Do you mean Congressman Leo Ryan, who was killed by Jim Jones People’s Temple members in Guyanna back in 1979? As in almost 40 years ago? Maybe you want to paint them as right wingers, when a huge percentage were blacks? And pretend that something that happened 40 years ago is representative as a threat in 2017?

      Robert Kennedy? Now we’re going back almost 50 years, Kennedy was shot by Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan who hated Kennedy for his pro-Israel stance. Not exactly a compelling example to foster an idea of a ‘right wing’ zealot and a threat in 2017!

      Do better next time.

    Natural selection for the win.

    • Posted by Snoop Eastwood, at Reply

      yeah thats why liberals get abortions, natural selection.

    • Posted by bigbaddawg101, at Reply

      @Snoop Eastwood, you sound like there’s some sort of massive epidemic of people getting abortions. It’s doesn’t happen as often as conservatives would have you think. A majority of Planned Parenthood centers don’t even do abortions. But I supposed reading and comprehension isn’t one of your strong points.

    • Posted by SciGuy, at Reply

      It also produced conservatards.

    On a side note, if you happen to be on any kind of narcotics, such as pain pills, you will now have to go to your doctor, pay for the visit, for every prescription you receive.
    That’s a doctor’s visit every month for many ppl on limited income, who may need these medications to function.
    Imagine having to pay for a doctor’s visit 12 times a year, even if it’s just a copay. That’s not mentioning the travel costs.
    They are punishing the patients, and letting the pharma corps and dirty doctors escape culpability.
    FYI, many of these ppl that are addicted are in that shape strictly because of POS doctors, who are essentially “legalized dope dealers”.
    This could very well push average ppl into the streets, and result in more and more heroin addicts.
    Not everyone who takes these medications are users, some need them just to simply function in general.
    Coupled with the cuts, this could be a disaster. It WILL be a disaster.
