What is more sleazy to me is that often Medicaid nursing home care is inferior. So Mom and Dad stiff the government but may get substandard care.

I am shocked however at the attitude that some people have. The measure of socieity is how well it treats those that are less fortunate.

As far as the government being in the charity business, where does it stop? Doctors incomes have soared since Medicare came into existance, that's charity. How about highways or airports who pays for those-mostly federal dollars.

I am a hard core capitalist, but this "let them eat cake" attitude is sad.
