We have yet another first for the ′historic′ Barack Obama presidency! If being the first US president to preside over a downgrading of US bonds, or failing to pass annual federal budgets were not enough for you, try this one out for size. According to a newly completed research study by the CDC′s National Center for Health Services, the life expectancy rate has declined for the first time in America! Not only are those between the ages of 45 through 55 dying younger, but the death rate itself has increased from 724.6/100,000 to 733.1/100,000. Those born in 2015 are now expected to live only 78.8 years as opposed to 78.9 years. In addition to those dying from chronic diseases like diabetes, there has been an increase in accidental deaths and suicides as well.
