1. Drug overdoses and suicides and healthcare costs

The confusion of living in a Republican Paradise. Those who want to live longer and can afford it, do.

2. I don't think Krugman understands how this works

Trump gets credit for every positive metric on his watch.

Blame for negative results is assigned elsewhere.

5. In his first year, he claimed credit for a drop in global airline fatalities

even though the change was only due to fewer foreign crashes. The stats for the US were unchanged because there hadn't been a crash in the US in years.

3. All rising faster in rural Republican counties too

Which is just more proof of the failed policies of local and State Republicans.

(I am aware these problems are more complex than any one government official can solve- but then Republicans try to blame the problems often associated with poverty on Democrats in cities).

6. Economic anxiety

as in Trump causes economic anxiety for many folks. Things are peachy for folks wealthy enough to own stocks. Doesn't do much for other folks.

7. Seeing the headline of the post,

I assumed it referred to RBG's being cancer free. He's not about to claim credit for that either, of course.
