While the public voices serious concerns about proposed socialized health care plans, a group likely to quietly be applauding this move are grave robbers, property poachers, walker stalkers and other opportunists seeking to loot estates via probate instruments like wills, trusts, guardianships and powers of attorney. Disgruntled family members, wannabe heirs or unscrupulous members of the legal industry will likely find treatment of the elderly under this new health care approach helpful with Involuntary Redistribution of Assets (IRA) actions in which probate venues or instruments are used to divert assets from intended heirs or beneficiaries.

The explanations of government-run health care being put forth defy logic and reasonable thinking. A plan that purports to allow people to keep their current health care providers while it covers more people at a reduced cost and involves no rationing or delaying/withholding of care makes no sense without a serious increase to our country’s debt, to productive Americans’ tax bills and probably both.

People are rightfully questioning details of the proposed versions of legislation as revealed to date. The White House and Congressional leaders claim public outrage is contrived. Diversion tactics aside, as the public learns more about potential “reform,” legitimate questions are surfacing over its cost implications, effectiveness in truly covering “all” Americans and the elder-hostile nature of its language. Despite assurances against rationing or withholding care – especially for seniors, the terminally ill or those with life-threatening injuries – language in at least one of the versions appears to say otherwise.
