A Vote for Hillary is A Vote to End the Heroin Epidemic.
The craziest election in the history of the United States of America is about to take place and the biggest issue on my mind is the heroin epidemic. I have not seen any press regarding which candidate is best suited to end the heroin epidemic. I have seen nothing on TV during either debate about the candidate’s stance on the heroin epidemic or about people who need help with heroin addiction. So that’s what this article is all about, what candidate is best suited to help fight addiction.
Only One Candidate Talks about The Heroin Epidemic On Their Website.
Take a quick look at Hillary Clinton’s website and you find you are only 1 click away from finding her position on the heroin epidemic. In 2015 Hillary said,
“We’re not just now ‘discovering’ this problem. But we should be saying enough is enough. It’s time we recognize as a nation that for too long, we have had a quiet epidemic on our hands. Plain and simple, drug and alcohol addiction is a disease, not a moral failing—and we must treat it as such.”
Hillary Will Give $7.5 Billion Dollars to Help with Heroin Addiction.
One entire page of her website is devoted to the topic of addiction. She recognizes that 23 million people in America suffer from the disease of addiction and that only 1 in 10 get treatment. In today’s world we know that a large percentage of those 23 million will die at the hands of the heroin epidemic. Hillary then elaborates with a plan to launch a $7.5 billion dollar program for federal and state partnerships that give local leaders the power and means to help with heroin addiction in their communities. $7.5 Billion! Not Million! Billion! That is unbelievable, you know how much money I think it would take to end the Heroin Epidemic? About $7.5 Billion.
Clinton Will Give First Responders Naloxone Battle Heroin.
As if the money wasn’t enough to raise your hopes that Hillary will end the heroin epidemic, that’s just the first part of her plan. She wants to give first responders naloxone, the drug that blocks or reverses the effects heroin. Then she will crack down on doctors for prescribing the opiates the started the epidemic. Get people in jail the help with heroin addiction that the need and more. Plus to top it all off, she we keep the affordable care act (Obama Care) in place, because it mandates access for help with heroin addiction treatment. Why is this not on the news. This is a plan that will work. What is Trumps plan to fight the heroin epidemic?
Trump Has Zero Plans To Help Fight Heroin.
Donald Trump has nothing on his website about the heroin epidemic, nothing about how to help with heroin addiction, nothing about addiction or substance abuse. If you do a Google search and you search long and hard you can find out that he says yes to medical Marijuana and that his brother died of alcoholism. His brother died of this disease, yet he has no plan to fight alcoholism or to end the heroin epidemic.
So, if you are a person in recovery, if you need help with heroin addiction or no someone who is in the grips of the heroin epidemic there is only one thing you should be saying on November 8th.
I’m with her.
