A short story: Obamacare versus healthcare!

Obamacare versus healthcare! 

The year was 1915. Harry Dorfman just arrived from Warsaw; uneducated, penniless and unable to read or write any english at all.

He found a place to live in a lower east-side tenement and took the only job he could find, driving a team of horses over the newly-built Brooklyn bridge to the farms in this outer borough. Each morning he would deliver a wagon-load of milk that was destined for the ever expanding Jewish population on Delancy street.

So many times we heard the family-told story of the "highway-robbers" who met the ire of that "Polish Milkman", and that "they never stole one container of his milk!"

Sure, he "drank too much" (vodka, not the milk!!) sure he just "loved those women", but his son became a doctor, one of his daughters became Charles Goren's executive assistant ( the founder of the modern card game "bridge") and his other daughter ran the family candy-store.

Harry Dorfman was my grandfather.

He was 98 when he died. Not a sick day in his entire life.
This poor, uneducated, illiterate Polish immigrant left a legacy of doctors, lawyers, dentists, teachers, scientists, and probably his most crowning achievement, housewives. He loved to eat.

Living "with family" into his 90's, he deserved and received our respect and admiration.

Harry Dorfman was my grandfather. 

I was his first-born grandson and I miss him very much. He never did learn how to read or write my name in English. But, I really did love that character.

In the November 12th issue of the National Review, it was reported that British doctors have been asked to designate one percent of their patients who will likely die this year and offer them immediate "end of life " treatment in order to save their National Health Service $840 million dollars a year!

Norman Lamb, Minister of State for Care Services, is asking physicians in England's goveremt-run healthcare system, to look for "indications of fragility and deterioration" and that end of life treatment should be "as comfortable and dignified as we can possibly make it.". How considerate of him!

Obamacare secrets revealed!

Hidden in the 2800 pages of our own " Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are two committees:

1- "The Independent Payment Advisory Board" controls all payments to doctors, hospitals, research centers and medical schools and,

2- " The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force" determines exactly which types of treatment every doctor may perform and which patients may receive them!

These two committees :

1- are made up of government appointees,

2- meet in private,

3- have no congressional oversight,

4- do not have to publish any preliminary recommendations, and

5- are not required to hold any public hearings!!

Who would YOU like to be in charge of your treatment during the last few years of your life?

Minister Norman Lamb, Barack Obama, Secretary Cathleen Sebalious , or Grandpa Harry?

On November 6th, I am afraid the choice was made for you. !!

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help ."

Ronald Reagan, Aug. 2, 1986
