Joe Biden ran claiming to be America’s father, but now that he is in office, we have lost more people to opioid overdoses than ever.

“In 1999, there were just under 20,000 fatal overdoses. Now, overdose deaths are five times higher—over 100,000 in the 12 months ending May 2021, according to the CDC’s most recent, tragically delayed, data,” The Hill recently reported.

The D.C. paper went on to note that despite Biden’s claims, “things have not improved.”

According to Bloomberg:

The U.S. reached the grim milestone of 100,000 drug overdose deaths annually, a sign that the opioid crisis deepened at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

An estimated 100,306 Americans died from an overdose in the 12 months ended in April, a period that included months of lockdowns and business restrictions across the country, according to provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. The toll is up 29% from the previous year.

About three-quarters of the total were overdoses from opioids, which rose 35%, killing 207 Americans a day on average during the period. That’s 54 more on a daily basis than a year earlier, CDC data show.

All this is getting worse in the Biden era, not better.

Biden is utterly failing on this, along with everything else.
