Yep the government is so broke that baby-boomers are not going to die in a hospital or long term care facility unless you pay for it!

Instead of selling your home and giving money to relatives so you can get medicaid and Free housing also probably will be barred too! Instead you must age in place at your home and if you cannot get well then die at your home so you don't clog up the Hospitals and cost Obama care more money.

The system is broke that the poor baby boomers are just going to have to revert to dieing faster to make room for less spending on your end of life expenses!

No death panels just die at home instead!

It called for a "major reorientation and restructuring of Medicare, Medicaid and other health care delivery programs" and the elimination of "perverse financial incentives" that encourage expensive hospital procedures when growing numbers of very sick and very old patients want low-tech services like home health care and pain management.

Housing. Would a few changes make your home easier and safer to live in? Think about things like a ramp at the front door, grab bars in the tub or shower, nonskid floors, more comfortable handles on doors or faucets, and better insulation. Sound expensive? You might be able to get help paying for these changes. Check with your local or State Area Agency on Aging, State housing finance agency, welfare department, community development groups, or the Federal Government (see the resources in For More Information).

    If home health care keeps you in your house for an additional year, you can keep ownership of your house for an additional year.

    Obviously it would have to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but assisted living homes are much more expensive than home health care, and, frankly, if the person is up to it, living at home is a much healthier environment.

    Home health care and meals upon wheels can go a long way to improve quality of life.

    Come on if you live in a house paying taxes and you must leave to pay for assisted living then the government will suck every penny you have.Unless your wife is still living in it! Even Then they will suck her savings out to pay for your housing!

    How is Federal Reserve going to service all the debt they have against us for QE 1,2,3,4? that they are holding? What is the interest rate going to be?

    Then all the illegal immigrants they naturalized and pay for their Obama Care,Child Care,Food WIC Cards ETC...? The old poor and weak are going to get sold out and forgotten.

    Obamacare (sic)/Medicare will not cover some preventative test once over 75 years old.
