Anyone who thinks they aren't just some crappy luck away from having everything they have ever worked for taken away with a bad prognosis or terrible accident under the pubs plan is sadly mistaken. For example - The average nursing home costs about $100,000 a year to keep a loved one in. And that isn't one you you probably would want one of your loved ones to stay in. That is exactly where a lot of the medicaid cuts will come from - nursing home care for all sorts of non elderly people, as well as the elderly. If you have a parent who is getting up there in years you may want to consider that.
