Scott Walker’s biennial budget includes “death tax” targeting Medicaid recipients
Walker continues to punish the poor. His base loves red meat.
Among the little-known provisions of the biennial state budget proposed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker and rubber-stamped by Republicans in the Legislature is a provision buried in the budget that would drastically expand the state’s ability to claim dead couples’ joint property – even if the assets are protected in trusts.
The language is designed to help the state recover Medicaid money spent on a number of long-term care programs, most notably Family Care, which helps keep disabled and elderly people out of costly nursing homes.
Federal rules also prohibit people from divesting or giving away property to make themselves poor enough to qualify for a long-term Medicaid program. However, the regulations allow applicants to transfer some assets, such as interest in a business, at less than market value without penalty.
The Wisconsin budget eliminates that exemption, which means a Wisconsin resident seeking Medicaid coverage for long-term care would have to sell his or her assets, such as a share of a family business or farmland, for full market value even if it was going to a child.

All that Free Shaat ain't Free for everybody!

Someone needs to pay for the Entitlement's of the Officially Recognized Victim Classes.

Those old White Folks Dying off and leaving the Fruits of their Life's Labor to their Children, just is not fair when there are millions of Un Educable to fill the Government Schools and Teachers (gag) to Babysit them..... when there are Womyn that need $3000, per year in Free Birf Control...... when there are Militarized Local Policing Units that need Advanced Weaponry to sustain Freedom and Liberty!

Besides, the Life's Labor that Old Folks put into building this Country which is being destroyed by the Race Hustling Community Activists Handlers, was never the Old Folks Anyway.......

So if a couple has assets then they should not pay for their medical care?

Guess what's comin' down the shoot for everyone, that's it Obamacare! Just think how busy the IRS agents are going to be draining the trusts from all the Americans, well maybe just the tea partiers.

Isn't it wonderful? Can't wait.

Let's not forget we need to be compassionate and provide free medical care to illegals, and that cost can come out of the trusts of Americans too, it's not their fault they don't have any assets. Someone has to pay the piper.
