3:03 am
over the next week. everybody involved in the story will be able to use a figure of c. sofia bulgaria and coming up sick of all things so obvious it was a georgian government wants to ban decades of the country's history some say it's only trying to draw public attention away from the problems of today. fears republicans will try to repeal president barack obama's health care law have risen following the u.s. midterm elections democrats lost control over the house of representatives and will now struggle to implement a reform whether congress meets in two thousand and eleven arches lauren lyster has been talking to a nine eleven hero for whom a new health care system is the only hope to stay alive. new york for. the big apple it's the city that never sleeps and just beyond the urban chaos. neither does kenneth george from one of the most. deer in his
3:04 am
closet and you can see why here's a quote here kenneth is a sick man and despite appearances the photos with us politicians in plaques from the president recognizing him as a hero in the aftermath of nine eleven act around zero here's a letter from the president obama he still can't afford his health care rather than medications i'm eating probably. you know it's expensive his insurance fall short which means every month you have to pick and choose what ailments he treats this is what i do a lot of times i stick with the course here to help me breathe at night and i skip some of the other medications my sleeping pills to help me sleep even without sleeping pills he hasn't slept well since nine eleven a city employee working on highways he was drafted into the search and rescue team in the aftermath of the attack on the twin towers basically picking up human remains and searching to see what it was or why the aftermath for him has been forced early retirement in a fixed pension basically a kick you know and

a cut in health care which puts him in a deadly dilemma forced to make possibly life or death decisions because of the chronic diseases he suffers arising from his work at ground zero i really got a foot in the grave because of the heart and lung disease that i did was get punished for the sake of doing my job down there the kind of case is unique in that he was a nine eleven first responder grim statistics show he is not alone in the united states now ranks forty ninth in the world in overall life expectancy this is a drop from twenty fourth back in one thousand nine hundred nine it put that behind countries such as south korea bosnia as well as bigger opinion yet the prime reason for the decline researchers say it's america's deteriorating health care system with a growing number of people who are uninsured or underinsured so how well the course is about people just like kenneth i think that insurance companies make decisions that are not necessarily towards. the betterment of the patient but
3:06 am
some of his patients are even worse off than canada if they don't have insurance that means it's all out of pocket a lot of these people are not working there's a lot of problems and i think the president has tried. to repair a system that's out of whack you as president obama's health care reforms might. help someone like kenneth but there's still lots of red tape to be faced with insurers and now the reforms themselves are under threat from a house now controlled by republicans who vowed to overturn them but as the politicking goes on kenneth still needs his prescriptions for a way to get paid. for these uncovered and he'll still be forced to make desperate choices on which ones he can afford and which ones he can't this in the richest and largest economy in the world in a country where he was praised as a hero by its president but that won't change his grim reality his prognosis as
