3. This will only get much worse.

Due to a number of factors (feel free to add to my list):
1. Deaths due to increasing crime caused by rising poverty and emotional stress.
2. More heart related deaths along with suicides due to a more divided and economically stressed society.
3. Reduced support for healthcare in general, and particularly for women, children and the poor.
4. Rising healthcare costs and insurance premium increases, resulting in less preventative care.
5. Increases in job-related deaths due to deregulation of workplace safety rules.
6. Increases in pollution-related deaths due to deregulation of the EPA.
7. More deaths due to natural disasters cause by defunding of emergency support systems (see Puerto Rico).
8. More drug-related deaths due to defunding of our already inadequate prevention and recovery systems now in place.

And, the voices of most of those dying will not be heard.
