33. Government "couldn't have done it." It cost your family that

she didn't use this dodge, and let's face it this is normal in our society. After cleaning herself out paying medical bills, my MIL (a frugal lifetime saver) put her last few thousand in trusts for our children and then filed for Medicaid. I'd do it myself.

But at least let's not pretend our government (OUR as in We the People) is doing something wrong by expecting us to pay our own way as much as we can. After all, if that means we are required to spend money caring for ourselves that we would have liked to leave to our children, oh well.
