“uncertainty about future government funding” : ObamaCare Death Spiral, December 2016

It must be noted that I started documenting these ObamaCare/healthcare related shutdowns at the beginning of 2014. In that year I posted the reports biannually (every six months). In 2015 ObamaCare cutbacks ramped up and I posted quarterly (every three months). For the past 12 months of 2016 there have been so many ObamaCare cutbacks that I’ve posted a report every month!

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) more people in the United States die from opioid based drugs than from gunshot! And the majority of those opiod deaths are not from illegal drugs but from prescription drugs!

The pro-vaccination organization known as Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is warning that the next ten years will experience escalating antibiotic resistant pandemics.
