    You bet the Congress has that right.

    It is called Medicare.

      My grandfather died recently and his end of life care was covered by medicare.  Luckily for all involved, he died quickly and didn't linger and suffer.  But if he had, we were told in no uncertain terms that his Medicare would soon run out and all bills would go to his savings.

      Medicare is NOT single payer.  It has limits, the benefits do run out and people still go flat broke dying on medicare.

      •  Yes, and many older Americans have to dispose of (0+ / 0-)

        assets early in retirement, hopefully to loving family, in order to preserve whatever they've managed to accrue through the years.
