Newt Gingrich is the only Republican presidential contender who responded to a National Council on Aging (NCOA) candidate survey.

Gingrich, a former House speaker and a former co-chair of the national Alzheimer’s Study Group, told the NCOA, Washington, that the best way to help the United States address its long-term care (LTC) needs is to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA).

Obama says his administration is already implementing a number of programs that should help more people with disabilities live at home.

One PPACA program has provided $2.3 billion to help people who have been living in institutions move into community settings, and another PPACA component, the new Community First Choice program, will pay for more states to offer community-based care benefits along with nursing home care benefits, Obama says.
