    U.S. life expectancy varies by more than 20 years from county to county

    After all, their party is doing just what they wanted:

    Getting rid of healthcare

    Stop the messaging on healthy eating

    Slashing funding for education

    Tax cuts for corporations and billionaires

    This is what the GOP base wanted. They have "won". Tell us they won't start complaining about what they "won".

    It seems it always comes down to the deep south:
    Most dropouts
    Unemployed
    Uneducated
    Shorter life expectancy

    They keep voting Republican and winning. Whatever it is they think they won, please don't give it to me. I want to live.

    Clear out the illegals, and the numbers go back to normal.

    What part of this is confusing to you?


    YOu ship jobs over seas, you cause economic hardship to the people.


    YOu give jobs to immigrants instead of Americans, you cause hardship to the people.


    People voted for change in Trade and Immigration, because the status quo policies are literally killing them.


    And your response is to call them names.

    You don't think South Dakota is a liberal state do you?

    Besides, look at all that pale blue. Where is most of it?

    Hey, genius, did you read your own link? Per the study you cited, the two years in which life expectancy dropped where 2013 and 2014, when the Democrats had the White house and the majority in the Senate.

    Are you really so stupid as to blame Trump for something that occurred under Obama?

    Swing and miss there pal!

    Oglala Dakota County, SD, marked on your map, is the poorest county in the United States. They have voted Democrat since 1956.

    It's no wonder they have the shortest lifespan.
