Donald Trump has not even been sworn in yet, and the liberals’ Trump Derangement Syndrome is already skyrocketing. Their latest round of scaremongering focuses on the repeal of Obamacare. Specifically, if Obamacare is repealed, it will be harder for addicts to get their fix.
Pennsylvania ranks among the highest in the nation in opioid overdose-related deaths and prescribing rates. Nationwide, the study estimates that more than 4 million Americans with serious mental illness or substance use disorders would lose some or all of their insurance coverage.
From Philadelphia to Scranton to Pittsburgh, the opioid epidemic is devastating families throughout Pennsylvania. In fact, we are in the midst of the worst overdose epidemic ever, with the State ranking third in the country for drug related deaths. Mothers, fathers, and children are losing their lives to addiction, but Congress’s plans to repeal the ACA without a replacement would leave them in the cold, without access to the treatment they need.

Philadelphia is suffering through an overdose epidemic, and Obamacare is the law of the land. I fail to see how its repeal would make things worse. It’s not like most junkies read the Philadelphia Inquirer; although they probably use it to catch any spilled heroin.
Personally, I place the financial stability of the American people over the some addict’s mood enhancers.
