“Long-Term Care Costs”

Long-Term Care Costs,” by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, The Daily Dish



“Making good policy also good politics is hard. But sometimes good policy is just hard all by itself. Designing a tax reform? Easy. Making Social Security sustainable and reducing the growth of debt? Did it in one Metro ride. Immigration reform to bolster economic growth, while preserving border security, a commitment to families, and welcoming arms for refugees? Hard. Health care reform that provides more insurance coverage, higher value care, and reduced growth in entitlement spending. Really, really hard. Financing the future growth of long-term care support and services? Harder than rooting for the Astros.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):

Good LTC policy was hard, but thankfully, already done. Read our latest and best: “Medicaid and Long-Term Care.”
