BTW, some states through Medicaid are paying family members to take care of their elderly. You might check, OP, to see if your state will do this. They are finding it cheaper to pay a family member than to put the elderly person in a nursing home.

Re: Medicare And My Mother
I go to work every day at 0300. At 1200 I leave work and go to my mom's house to take care of her until 1845 at night. My other sister takes over from there. As a liberal, I'd like to know how you antisocialist republicans think it is my responsibility to spend my taxes on taking care of your parent. It's not. Sell her house and move her in with you. Use the money to take care of her. I'm sorry for your mom, but really? Really??? You're pissed because Obama is not giving your parent their socialist benefits? How much did your mom pay into Medicare and how much does a pacemaker cost? Honestly? What is it that you expect? If your mom paid $20,000 in Medicare contributions in a life time and she received a $150,000 pacemaker, what do you expect from the government. You hate socialism, and then when you don't get it from the socialist party you hate that too. Let me see.... The party of "drill here drill now" lost billions in the Gulf oil spill... mostly Republican states by the way. What's the problem. The party of "Global warming is a hoax." is getting their asses handed to them, mostly Republican states by the way. You are getting the government you asked for. Man up and move your mom in with you and stop expecting Democrats to give you hand outs! If you despise socialist programs so badly, don't whine when they get cut off and your family pays the cost. It is a good learning opportunity. I really am sorry for your mom. It's too bad you are so opposed to socialized medicine. She will suffer because of voters like you.

FTR, I am an INDEPENDANT currently registered as a democrat. BECAUSE of the socialist pos in the White House, my mothers PAID FOR care has been cut. My Dad died at 65. What about the money he paid into the system since he was 14 years old?
BTW, I am also female, not a dude. What really upsets me, is that we as a country spend billions overseas, mostly to help our enemies, but Americans here at home can't get their basic needs met.

Re: Medicare And My Mother
There is an issue about how much money do we spend on end-of-life care. OP's mother is already considered terminal and in hospice, and now that I realize that (didn't read thru the whole thread) I am not that upset that there are limits on how much is spent on her.

A nearby nursing home currently is under attack by their unionized workers whose union is SEIU. Yes them again. They've had a picket line outside the driveway in there, for months. It would be good to bust up these unions and perhaps nursing homes would become more affordable with better service. Obama will certainly never support THAT though.

I don't want my family to suffer reduced care so that 15-40 year old illegal immigrants continue to get coverage and get even more coverage. If we cut them off and there still isn't enough money, tell me and I'll see reason. But simply, it's our system and we don't want the rules changed now after we've paid into it. It wasn't sold to us as a healthcare system for anyone who manages to sneak across the border.

She is NOT in hospice, but there is no doubt she will not live past 1-2 years, probably a lot less time than this. For Hospice, you have to have the doctor say you are expected to live 6 months or less.

Re: Medicare And My Mother
First of all, if your mother is 89 years old she has used many years of services so you have no right to cry about 'cuts'. If you totaled the amount she paid in over the course of her life, she used her up her share 15 years ago. Sounds to me like she is a very bitter,stubborn, and spiteful old bitch by refusing to live with anyone. I would not cater to her. If she wants to be on her own than let her be on her own and 100 percent independant. Make it clear that when she falls on her bitch ass and busts a hip that the option to move in is no longer available.

My mother was in reasonably good health until she had the pacemaker put in earlier this year. It appears you have some serious mental health issues, as is evident in your posts. I urge you to seek treatment for your extreme hatred and bitterness.

No, I am just being a realist. The goverment can no longer support all the needs of the aging population. The funds are not there. It is your responsibility to do this. I owe her nothing. She diapered your ass ass a baby, so it is your turn to diaper hers.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20849511


She does not wear diapers. As for responsibility, your tax dollars are going to support other countries, illegal aliens, and people on medicaid. The government says you have to support them. Try not paying your taxes so your don't have to support these demographics.

It has to be a full time caregiver, and the patient has to be on medicaid. My mother is not on medicaid, just medicare with a supplement

Another good post Tiger, thank you.

I never give RED karma, only GREEN for great posters. If you give me red or green please leave your name, I like to say thank you...

The history of Jewish holidays can be summed up easily: "They tried to kill us; we won, lets eat!"

In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until after it graduates from medical school.

Goodbye sweet friend, we miss you.
