210. Maybe signatures on powers of attorney should be witnessed or
better yet notarized in order to be valid. Also, signing to have someone visit you in the hospital should be a different matter than signing a power of attorney. I support Obama's policy. I would just like to see granting power of attorney to someone be just a tad more difficult. I would like to have some objective third party involved in order to make sure that the person signing over that authority at least superficially appears to be of sound mind when they do it. The law may already require this. I don't know. I just know that our friend was tricked. He was not involved in a long-term or meaningful relationship with the guy who took advantage of him.
