Obama’s America: U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High

The suicide rate in the US is now at a 30-year high. Small wonder with a Marxist like Barack Obama in power for the last eight years. No one can get a job, people can’t own their own homes anymore, taxes are skyrocketing, healthcare is impossible to get and it goes on and on. In fact, all segments of American society have seen their ranks committing more and more suicide, except for… the elderly. And I’m sure Obama or Clinton will help off them if they get the chance. The rate climbed radically for women and for middle class Americans. That ought to tell you a lot. Welcome to Obama’s ‘changed’ America.


From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Suicide in the United States has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, a federal data analysis has found, with increases in every age group except older adults. The rise was particularly steep for women. It was also substantial among middle-aged Americans, sending a signal of deep anguish from a group whose suicide rates had been stable or falling since the 1950s.

The suicide rate for middle-aged women, ages 45 to 64, jumped by 63 percent over the period of the study, while it rose by 43 percent for men in that age range, the sharpest increase for males of any age. The overall suicide rate rose by 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, which released the study on Friday.

The increases were so widespread that they lifted the nation’s suicide rate to 13 per 100,000 people, the highest since 1986. The rate rose by 2 percent a year starting in 2006, double the annual rise in the earlier period of the study. In all, 42,773 people died from suicide in 2014, compared with 29,199 in 1999.

And this doesn’t even cover veterans returning home. Many of whom are homeless or without anyone to help them. Their suicide rates are almost an epidemic. “It’s really stunning to see such a large increase in suicide rates affecting virtually every age group,” said Katherine Hempstead, senior adviser for health care at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, who has identified a link between suicides in middle age and rising rates of distress about jobs and personal finances. People simply can’t take it anymore and if Hillary gets into the White House, we’re done. “This is part of the larger emerging pattern of evidence of the links between poverty, hopelessness and health,” said Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard and the author of “Our Kids,” an investigation of new class divisions in America. But they still can’t understand the cause for all this. It’s Progressivism and the cure is conservatism. We need to return to Reagan’s policies and a leader such as Ted Cruz. Choose wisely this November, lives depend on it.
