45. Let me tell you a little story.

I live in Missouri. Both of my parents died within the past 5 years. When they eventually had to be place in a nursing home, they were completely broke, and needed Medicare/Medicaid to survive. They didn't last long once inside a nursing home. Without these two valuable services, I don't know what would have happened to them. I would, for sure, be broke myself if I had to pay for the overpriced nursing homes. You get very little for the money.

Between the two of them they payed hundreds of thousands in taxes to obtain these services and I see no reason why they should not have used these services. Many of the current seniors are in the same/similar situation. Yet we want to cut these services? Why? Many of the children of seniors will be faced with this identical situation in the future. So be prepared. Fight for what is rightfully theirs.
