In a minute .....

 

Why is life expectancy only age 57 for South Dakota Native Americans? That's 24 years less than the state's white residents.

 

A big reason, according to a recent NY Times article, is substandard health care as administered by the Trump administration.

  

The Times article stated that since 2016 Indian Health Service, the Trump administration has declined to pay medical bills for more than 500,000 patients, leaving them with over $2 billion in debt. Despite such severe problems, Congress has refused to overhaul the way Native Americans get health care.

  

The tribes are trying to reclaim control of their own hospitals but the funding is hard to come by, lacking the casino income of reservations in other states. Alaska's Indians have a good model to follow but they have better access to grant money.

  

Speaking of casinos, the Associated Press reported in May 2019 that two Trump-linked firms received $30,000 each to lobby against approval of a new casino in Massachusetts planned by the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

 

The lobbyists represent casinos in Rhode Island, which don't want competition.

All spending comes through Pelosi, per the Constitution.

Your bitching about the wrong person.

 

You guys are impeaching the President for giving Congressional approved money to Ukraine fast enough.
You would have impeached the hell out of him if he refused to pay the Indians

 

Think about it
