The opioid crisis is being driven by a corrupt, inept, and downright criminal administration that has been at the heart of it all, a report released today by the Institute for Policy Studies finds.
“Obama’s opioid war is about as American as the American flag,” said the report, “with a president who has embraced and enabled the very culture of the opioid epidemic.”
The report is based on research by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a non-partisan think tank that advocates for the interests of working families, seniors, and young people.
It also cites a series of articles by the Washington Post, the New York Times, and other outlets, as well as a series by ProPublica and the Los Angeles Times.
The report argues that President Donald Trump, a longtime critic of the Obama Justice Department, was instrumental in getting the administration to allow insurers to write the opioid prescription drug, OxyContin, for free under the Affordable Care Act.
Under the Obama-era law, which was passed in 2010, insurers could not charge higher prices to people who had used OxyContin for more than 12 months.
This meant that people with pre-existing conditions could get the drug at much lower prices.
But by allowing insurers to profit from people using the drug, Obama administration officials believed that the administration could incentivize them to write a high-priced drug, the report argues.
This led to an explosion in opioid abuse and overdoses in the United States.
According to the report: The opioid epidemic has been driven by the government’s decision to give free OxyContin to millions of people in the insurance industry, which then paid the insurance companies to write more OxyContin prescriptions for them.
This is what drove the opioid overdose death rate.
The administration also used this policy to increase the use of opioids for chronic pain in communities of color.
The result was the creation of an industry of pain pill manufacturers that, through inflated prices, are fueling the opioid abuse epidemic.
The opiate epidemic is fueled by a government that, according to the study, has created a corrupt and incompetent government in Washington that has allowed the drug industry to thrive in a way that no other industry can.
“We’ve been living with the Obama opioid crisis for more years than most people,” said Bill Piper, a professor at Georgetown University’s Center for Health Policy Studies.
“But it never happened to the same extent as it did under the Obama regime.”
The opioid crisis is a serious threat to the nation, and one that the Obama White House, which has made the opioid addiction epidemic the central focus of its presidency, has failed to address, the institute found.
“The opioid epidemic is not about saving lives,” said Piper.
“It’s about creating profit for the pharmaceutical industry.
The problem is, this profit is flowing to the insurance and prescription drug industries, and that’s the only way to stop this epidemic.”
Opioid addiction has devastated the lives of people and families.
It has made them addicted to opiates, leading to a wide range of problems, from suicide to homelessness, addiction to the development of addiction-related mental illness and other illnesses, and addiction to other drugs and conditions.
Opioids have also led to the death of millions of Americans and hundreds of thousands of others around the world, including thousands of people who were born with the condition.
The opioid addiction crisis has created an entire generation of people struggling with opioid use disorders, including many of those who were not even born with a medical condition.
It is not just people in pain, but also those who are in the middle of their lives.
According the report’s authors, the opioid problem is only getting worse.
“This is not an epidemic that we’ve seen before,” said Tom Angell, chairman of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, which is working to rein in spending on prescription drugs.
“Every single day, there are more deaths caused by opioids.”
The opioid problem in the U.S. has been on the rise for decades, the Institute found, largely due to the Obama Administration’s failure to curb the opioid industry and its expansion into other sectors of the economy.
This has led to massive increases in drug abuse and overdose, with the opioid death rate growing at a rate of nearly 500 percent over the past decade.
The number of Americans dying from opioid overdoses has also increased.
The Institute found that more than 5,500 people died from opioid-related deaths in 2016, a number that jumped to more than 11,600 in 2017.
It was also up by nearly 10,300 in 2018.
This trend continued in 2019, with a surge of 1,200 people dying from opioids in the same year.
The death toll from the opioid opioid epidemic in the country as a whole is expected to reach nearly 8 million by 2025.
“When you look at the opioid issue and look at how many people have died, it is staggering,” said Angell.
“These numbers are staggering.”
A 2016 Pew Research Center survey found that 61 percent of Americans believe that
