  •  I can believe that, Sixtieslibber (0+ / 0-)

    I don't think many people understand what medicare or medicaid are.  They have changed a lot of requirements through the years with medicare and nursing homes.
    I believe they used to be a lot more liberal about benefits.
    Then, and this might just co-inside with them lowering the inheritance tax for rich folks, they started requiring middle class folks to sell off their houses and stuff in order to pay for the home.  Spouses can live in the home, but if it's just you, I think you're screwed.  No leaving any inheritance for your kids.
    By the way, Sixtieslibber  -  I love your name.

    I belong to the Honey Badger Wing of the Democratic Party. We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. Have you seen our videos?
