For those of you who are following the blog posts on the incredible life of Oscar Ewing, I have come to his political career and I keep finding new information. I am torn on how to present a few items that Oscar Ewing tackled in his time. I am finding that he was at the time and is still controversial in his thinking. Initiating Medicare for the elderly was not unlike The Affordable Care Act today. I have discovered several parallels. He was also controversial for advocating the fluoridation of municipal water. I hope you will bear with me as I try to put the 1940's and 1950's in some semblance of order and present to you in concise form. In the meantime, I will continue to try to keep you entertained with vintage pictures and articles.
