  1. I wish they would break down how many of the deaths were due to legal drug or illegal drug overdose. The panel went on and on about “big pharma”. Without a breakdown of the overdose data, I don’t see how they can make the case that there’s any connection.

  2. The shut down of the churches where people with addiction problems caused a lot of relapses which increased the number of overdoses. You who blame others do not help the recovery cause. Access to treatment is what is needed. It takes over 30 days or longer to get help and the border being open with Fentanyl pouring through is killing many who want help.

  3. We are blaming the wrong folks.
    It is these democratic politicians who are shutting down all that is good in this society and destroying people's lives; using the Covid scam as the vehicle for burning this nation to the ground.
    They are the true enemies of the people.

  4. There are too many crisis of national importance directly related to public health for news programs to continue placing journo’s with no background in health science in front of cameras. Get some knowledgeable health reporters on these stories for the love…

  5. Deaths are up because more people in pain forced to go to the streets to find help and find that those drugs were not what they were told and die of this problem !! You do not take pain meds from people who need them !!! I know !! I am one who needs them !! It is wrong dead wrong !!! Many have committed suicide because they have no option this is finally coming out in the open Government should not control our bodies or our doctors ..fix a problem do not try to be doctors !! This is insane !!!

  6. Do the people have a say in their (mental) healthcare system?

    Any political system dominated by lobbyists means, the people definitely can't tell the difference between democracy and capitalism.

    People without hope can make a hundred thousand happen in a "jif", and two hundred thousand in a jiffy.

    SAD.

  7. What shes saying is, is that this system is completely corrupt from
    both sides and burnes at both ends. There is no middleground to be found anywhere. What next?

  8. I commend The Hill on being the first news outlet I have seen that can actually claim a "center" position. I consider myself a conservative but I like to hear the arguments from the left also, it is just so hard to find logical left leaning arguments these days

  9. I don’t buy it’s the drug companies…. That implies the Doctors have to write for the Rx. Every opioid Rx that is given goes through the DEA website and electronically signed by the doctor. I’m a Surgeon and the DEA knows exactly how many opioids I prescribe. If there is a corrupt Doctor giving out too many opioids they would know and could find out immediately on a daily basis. The ODs are fentanyl from Mexico via China.

    Conflating drug pricing with overdoses is so out of touch. This woman knows nothing about real issues.

  10. Jesus is now ruling as King of God’s Kingdom, and he is shaking the world controlled by Satan NOW. A TIME OF DECISION is now at hand for all of mankind. In this time of the end, the shaking of the nations is forcing people to make a decision. Will they support God’s Kingdom, or will they place their confidence in the governments of this world? This is the choice that all NOW face. Although Jehovah’s people obey the laws of the government of the land in which they live, they remain completely neutral with regard to the politics of this world. (Rom. 13:1-7) Those who obey (John 3:36) Jesus NOW know that the Kingdom of God is the only true solution to mankind’s problems. That Kingdom is no part of this world.—John 18:36, Jesus answered: “My Kingdom is no part of this world. If my Kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my Kingdom is not from this source.” 37 So Pilate said to him: “Well, then, are you a king?” Jesus answered: “You yourself are saying that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is on the side of the truth listens to my voice.”

    What is the Truth? Jesus told us; John 17:17 Sanctify them (‘them’ means those who obey him) by means of the truth; your word is truth. — There can’t be two Truths, or they will conflict with each other. The book of Revelation describes a testing of the loyalty of God’s people (those who chose the Truth) in the last days. That testing will continue to bring intense pressure on those who chose life by obeying Jesus. The political systems of this world will demand our worship and will persecute those who refuse to support them. They will put “under compulsion all people—the small and the great, the rich and the poor, the free and the slaves—that these should be marked on their right hand or on their forehead.” (Rev. 13:16) Slaves in ancient times were branded with a mark to show who owned them. Similarly, all in our day will be expected to have a symbolic mark on their hand or forehead. Their thoughts and actions will show that they belong to and support the political systems.
    The Mark of the beast is in your mind and thoughts, but the mark of God is on your hand, signifying action through obedience to Jesus; Matt. 24:14 “This good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”— This is the Great Work that Jesus was sent to the earth to do (Luke 4:43) and it is continuing today world wide in over 3,000 languages with literature in more than a 1,000 languages (given away freely) by more than 8,600,000 persons. If you want to read the full “I will shake all the nations, and the precious things of all the nations will come in.”—HAG. 2:7, please email me at rich5151@gmx and I will send it to you. PLEASE, think deeply about what you are reading in this post! ALL prophecies given in the Bible have been fulfilled exactly as stated except two, and they will certainly be fulfilled. Armageddon is one of them, and it is coming QUICKLY. The destruction of religion (churches) will soon begin, and when that starts, there is no more hope/opportunity for life.

  11. Spent most of my adult life teaching overseas. When we moved back to the US a couple of years ago, the first thing I noticed was how saturated our media is with pharmaceutical advertising.

    I am not just talking about commercials on TV, radio, streaming services, and ads in the internet. I was taken aback by how many posters I had to walk by at the airport just to get my luggage that were pharmaceutical ads and the billboards as I drive from the airport.
