Healthcare, illegal drugs, overdoses and suicides need reckoning

Health care is completely out of control. The price of care is beyond most people. I don’t believe health care costs will get better anytime soon.Walking and eating right helps. I know some people paying more than $1,000 a month for health insurance. If you do not have insurance it could cost you about $165 dollars a month not to have Obama care. So you’re paying
money for refusing Obama care.
With the rise of overdoses and illegal drugs in this country you would think we could do something about all this.What we need in this country is a separate police force and more task forces and more programs to help people get off pain medications and illegal drugs. More education is needed and an awareness that there is a problem here.
Suicides are up too high also and DUI drivers. It’s time to put an end to all this.
