Maine’s Financial Time-Bomb
Did you know that the Pine Tree State has one of the oldest average populations in the United States? Did you know that Maine also has one of the most generous Medicaid-funded long-term care programs in the nation? Are you aware that people with hundreds of thousands of dollars in wealth routinely qualify for that public assistance program, i.e. welfare?
Meanwhile, Maine faces serious budget problems and struggles to finance basic government programs (education, public safety, and funding for roads).
So, how are your finances? Are you struggling financially? Should you – the Maine taxpayer – have to foot the long-term care bill for wealthy Mainers and other recent New England transplants?
It’s time for us to take our medicine and come to terms with reality. Wake up Maine, the clock is ticking – tick, tick…
Join MHPC and Steve Moses, a nationally recognized expert and innovator in the field of long-term care, for a healthy dose of reality and how this situation came to be, why it persists, and how we can change it.
