Life in the Sickest Town in America

Along with neigh­bor­ing coun­ties, Buchanan has one of the high­est per­cent­ages of adult dis­abil­ity recip­i­ents in the nation, accord­ing to a 2014 analy­sis by the Urban Institute’s Stephan Lind­ner. Nearly 20 per­cent of the area’s adult res­i­dents received gov­ern­ment SSDI ben­e­fits in 2011.

The sub­tweet is apophatic in the beat-around-the-bush man­ner. It’s a pri­vate whis­per shrouded in “I didn’t say any­thing” inno­cence. But the super­tweet is direct in its apopha­sis, like the politician’s insult.
