Caregiving as a way to inherit stuff?
Anyone else getting the feeling that many caregivers care about the pot at the end of the rainbow and not the person?
I'm beginning to believe there are many who would be amenable to the 'death panels' so many talk about re National Health Care by some of the posts.
I'm of the firm belief that when a loved one needs nursing home care and the government 'takes' half their money, then that relieves us taxpayers of having to foot the entire bill. Yet, many believe that their loved ones saved this money for them.
Parents don't owe their children anything. If they are wealthy, sure, but many of our parents are not wealthy and the government has to step in to foot the bill. Anytime the government does this, it should be seen more as a gift, not a burden.
