I don't understand how folks come to the conclusion that the government should somehow protect people from having to use their own money for nursing home stays. Before the taxpayer picks up the tab, the person in need of nursing home care should be forced to exhaust all of their personal funds. I think a strong argument can be made that the same person's immediate family (adult kids) should pay too, at least before the taxpayers are called to pick up the tab.
