Passive vs Active Mortality

A couple of months ago, we blogged on the fact that, among other failures, ObamaCare hasn't actually saved any lives, and that "public health trends since the implementation of the ACA have worsened."

Bad as that may be (and it is awful), it pretty much describes a status quo as regards pre-O'Care healthcare financing (insurance) and delivery.

But what if it's actually worse than this?

Well, thanks to FoIB Holly R, we learn that it is:

"Mortality Rates Suggests Obamacare Could Be Killing People ... equivalent to an excess 11,000 annual U.S. adult deaths relative to the pre-Obamacare steady state trends"

This despite correcting for the increasing death toll from the opioid crisis (and similar factors). In other words, ObamaCare has a body count:

Now, it's fair to say that we don't know which part of The ObamaTax is responsible for this spike, but I would argue that this is just another reason for its full repeal, not DC rocket surgeon tweaking; the stakes are just too high.

But maybe that's just me.
