So I decided to take this map of US counties experiencing DECREASING life expectancies
And overlay it with this map of Red and Blue states from 2010
I got this
I then did the same thing with this map of red and blue counties as of 2008. I couldn’t find one for 2010.
I got this. The dark blue areas are predominantly Democratic counties experiencing decreasing life expectancies. The dark red areas are the predominantly Republican counties experiencing the same decrease.
The fact that anywhere in the United States is experiencing decreased life expectancy should be a national disgrace. There’s more going on here than clear party lines, but the testimony of these graphs is clear.
