Do you believe that funding of long term care should be treated similarly to health care? Why or why not? Please just type up a few thoughts on each of these questions and bring it to class on Tuesday. Thanks. Karen Concerning eligibility for welfare I do not consider “spending down” to be fraud.

Unformatted text preview: our people in this country especially the elderly. They shouldt have to be in poverty conditions to get assistance if they have disabilities, this is just wrong. If they have to cover or separate their assets to get assistance then I say they should do it. On the other hand I do not believe that elders have a right to leave an inheritance. If they have the money to support themselves then they shouldnt take advantage of the system.

If you cant even take care of them then why should they leave you money?...
