It occurs to me that someone else might be writing my column - more appropriately my obituary,- if Obamacare were in effect now instead of four years hence.
Last Wednesday night I had a heart attack. 911 responded promptly and summoned an ambulance to transport me to the hospital emergency room. I was quickly admitted, had a bunch of costly diagnostic tests and was assigned to a room.
I was given the best, up-to-date care available, including chelation therapy which does a roto-rooter procedure on the blocked artery, clearing it out and buttressing it with a stent to prevent it from closing down.
I was there for three days, carefully monitored, well-treated by the staff, and fed surprisingly good chow. Whatever was called for in my case was done, well and promptly and I shudder to think of what all this excellent care by skilled physicians and RNs providing the best care and medical procedures would cost me if it werent for my insurance coverage part of which included government funded Medicare.
And theres the rub. The Obama acolytes vehemently deny that the health care reform bill Congress shoved down our throats included what Sarah Palin called death panels but she was right. Under the new law hordes of bureaucrats will be monitoring patients and dictating the extent of care that will be provided. And that, in effect means deciding who lives and who doesnt. As Adam Walker Cleaveland put on his website Blatherings.
The truth is that under Obamacare, government will be involved in end-of-life decisions.(continued)

Yeah, my thoughts too. Isn’t chelation a process of inducing a “magnet” type substance that an unwanted substance or metal will bond to so it can be excreted from ones body?
Not necessarily magnets, but chemically I suppose it acts like one. The medication binds to all sorts of things and flushes them out, including heavy metals.
In my case, I was being treated for tin poisoning. We found out later that I didn’t have it, my lab sample had gotten contaminated, but it matched my symptoms at the time so it was believable. The treatment was kind of brutal, like getting chemo. Made me a little paranoid about metals, I NEVER want to go through that again!
"my lab sample had gotten contaminated,"
Not a funny thing, but what did they put the sample in, a K rations can?
Sorry you had to go though such a hassle. Hope you are feeling better now. On a side note, I am concerned about O care because I have M.S. and have been having a relapse for the last few months. How long would the death panels allow payment for treatment for that?
Yes I realize it is not magnets per-se :-) but I thought it was a decent analogy for how it works
