I am a huge fan of Terry Savage’s.
I’m providing a link to her piece titled “Pols are making us pay for their false promises” (Chicago Sun Times, Feb 21, 2011) because no one says it more succinctly and eloquently than Terry does.
Terry is describing the unsustainable “house of cards” that’s been created by continued spending of government money that doesn’t exist.
Government funding of long-term care is just one such entitlement.
If you agree with my opinion that it is entirely unrealistic to expect any help from the government when it comes to paying long-term care costs, you understand that long-term care insurance ownership is the only way to ensure dignity, options and choices if you wind up needing long-term care.
