Democrat Success: Life Expectancy Longer in Communist North Korea Than in Baltimore

A recent report on the Democrat-run city of Baltimore finds that residents would have a longer life if they lived in the starving, Hermit Kingdom of North Korea! Nice going Democrats. You kill your residents faster than an insane communist dictator!

Of course, the Washington Post article doesn’t mention the word Democrat even a single time, but the premise is stark.

For another illustration, let’s look at a hypothetical case of two babies born on the same day this year in Baltimore. One is born in Roland Park, a wealthy neighborhood in the north of the city. The other is born just three miles away in Downtown/Seton Hill, one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.

The Roland Park baby will most likely live to the age of 84, well above the U.S. average of 79. The Seton Hill baby, on the other hand, can expect to die 19 years earlier at the age of 65. That’s 14 years below the U.S. average. The average child born this year in Seton Hill will be dead before she can even begin to collect Social Security.

The only thing more astonishing than this 19-year gap in life expectancy is the short distance you have to travel in Baltimore to get from one extreme to another.

…Another way of looking at it is to compare life expectancies in Baltimore to various countries. If Roland Park’s life expectancy is similar to Japan’s, then Downtown/Seton Hill would be closest to Yemen. Roland Park would be the 4th longest-living country in the world, while Seton Hill would be the 230th. Fifteen Baltimore neighborhoods have lower life expectancies than North Korea. Eight are doing worse than Syria.

Again, it is shocking news, certainly, but the real news is that these low life expectancies are the fault of Democrat policies.

You can bet if Republicans led Baltimore, this article would have that pointed out in its first paragraph.
