Note that I am not suggesting people forego LTC insurance. (hmmm, do you really mean that because I did not see that statement in your articles) As I have said repeatedly, that's a personal (and financial) decision.
Recognize, though, that LTC is a broad definition and does not mean custodial care only.(then why do all of your statistics point to "nursing home stays and your accusations about passionate people describe scaring the elderly ?) Your hype (no hype here it is straight facts, people are living longer and will be able to live longer on fewer adl's) demeans your arguments (better put as defense of and support for privatization of long term care taking it out of the hands of the states, attorneys and the federal government), some of which are valid (they're all valid) yet denigrated by your blind passion (you forgot devotion, dedication and belief through actual "real" people not just AARP). Tone down the tenor of your remarks (why should I ? ) and
perhaps you will be heard more clearly (Im not trying to sell anything here so I am not concerned with being heard or understood, people should already know what to do).
