Long-Term Care Sneaks Into Convention Speeches

Republicans blasted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) at their national convention in Tampa, Fla., and Democrats have been celebrating the existence of PPACA at their convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Thoughts about the need for long-term care (LTC) services have also dribbled in.

"The biggest, coldest power play of all in Obamacare came at the expense of the elderly," Ryan said. "You see, even with all the hidden taxes to pay for the health care takeover, even with new taxes on nearly a million small businesses, the planners in Washington still didn’t have enough money. They needed more. They needed hundreds of billions more. So, they just took it all away from Medicare. $716 billion, funneled out of Medicare by President Obama. An obligation we have to our parents and grandparents is being sacrificed, all to pay for a new entitlement we didn’t even ask for."

Ryan then talked his experience with someone who needed LTC services: His grandmother, Janet, who had Alzheimer's disease.
