Ed Haislmaier, Heritage Foundation Scholar, Accosts Protester At Fix The Debt Panel . A conservative scholar at the Heritage Foundation, Edmund F. Haislmaier, attacked a nonprofit employee Tuesday morning in a hotel where both men were attending an event sponsored by the Campaign to Fix the Debt. The incident, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel downtown, occurred after Burke Stansbury, of the Seattle-based nonprofit Campaign for Community Change, and about 20 other progressive activists interrupted a speech by Republican Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio) to encourage the senator to protect Social Security and Medicare in fiscal cliff negotiations. Stansbury told The Huffington Post that Haislmaier followed him and his group out of the conference room, where video shows Haislmeier screaming, “No! No! No no no no! No! Nonono! No! I was invited on this panel … No no no no! No! These people, these people are screwing things up for my kids!” Stansbury replied, “These are the real people,” but Haislmaier was “livid.” As Haislmaier yelled, “‘And I’m not, I’m not…,’” Stansbury said, “he grabbed my wrist and then grabbed the camera and pulled the camera out of my hand and it fell to the floor.” The video shows the camera hitting the floor, after which it stops filming. At this point, according to witnesses, two hotel security guards stepped in and forcibly restrained Haislmaier. Haislmaier is a Senior Research Fellow in Health Policy Studies at the conservative think tank, and a longstanding …

Waterwheel Debate [00:05] Fitzpatrick: Number 1, Congress should not be exempt from any law passed in this country. None of them. Number 2, my family- I don’t take the Congressional Health Care Plan. My wife and I, we obtain our health care in the private sector. We pay our co pays and our family share like everybody else in this community. But we choose to do that because we understand that health care is a big issue and I’m going to be part of that debate, casting votes on your behalf, and I want you to understand and believe that I’m doing what I believe is in the best interest of this community in Pennsylvania. Number 3, I support consumer protection provisions of the Affordable Care Act. And I think we need to secure them and continue them. But I do not support the majority of the Affordable Care Act which has been referred to as Obamacare because when I speak to families throughout this district and I speak to small businesses… it was a well design- well intentioned law that is hurting businesses’ ability to grow and create jobs. [01:05] Fitzpatrick: Actually, it hurts the American people it was intended to help. I can give you a couple of examples. Um, 20+ tax increases in the bill. New taxes on income, new taxes on dividends, taxes on capital gains, taxes on medical devices which is something we need to be concerned about in Pennsylvania and specifically in Bucks County because we have many many manufactures of medical devices in Bucks County who do a great job …

Question by Nathan: Do you support a nation wide health insurance exchange?
Obamas words, not mine. Obama recently said any health care reform MUST INCLUDE a health insurance exchange, and the Bill’s language rests on an exchange.
I have not read the 1018 page bill.
Page 20, 25, 40, 42, 43, 45, 72, 81, 83, and more mention the health insurance exchange.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
In the majority of states throughout the United States, including Massachusetts, New Jersey, and California, a judge can sentence prison time to an adult child with resources who chooses not pay for their parents care. While these laws have been around, they were never enforced. States are now leveraging them to attack children with assets, but without Irrevocable Trust asset protection planning, in order to collect on their parent’s health care and nursing home bills.
Prison is still unlikely, but parents’ could easily cost their child their life savings. 29 states are now demanding children pay if their parents become unable to afford it. States are trying to find ways to save money and with Medicaid becoming an exploding part of their budgets, they are now using unenforced Falial laws to collect from adult children. It is going to become much more common, explains Rocco Beatrice, Managing Director of Estate Street Partners. “It is not going to stop there, however. Now that they have successfully litigated these cases, the floodgate will now open and I expect Medicaid to follow suit in most cases over $ 75,000.”
How This Affects Children with Aging Parents
Nursing home care can cost $ 100,000 a year. If mom is in a nursing home for 4 years with assets of 55,000 and she didn’t do Medicaid Asset Protection planning, she will have spent everything in a few months. After she passes the children will now be hit with a bill from the nursing home for $ 345,000. The bill is ignored because, even though asset protection planning was implemented incorrectly, the child believes the nursing home cant come after assets for a parents bills, right? The nursing home and Medicaid take the child to court under a filial responsibility law, making all of their financial statements a public court record for the world to see and ultimately winning a judgment for $ 345,000. Don’t think it can happen? It just did.
Dozens of cases are setting a new precedent on this issue. John Pittas of Pennsylvania didnt think it was his problem either, but the PA Appeals Court disagreed. They ruled that his mothers nursing home could go after John for the $ 93,000 bill. Additionally, all of Mr. Pittas financial information is a public record due to this case. How does one avoid this from happening? Stopping care when mom runs out of money and losing entire retirement savings are not realistic options for most.
Mr. Pittas had the money to pay, but defendants that won cases after being attacked by their state had insufficient assets to pay; reinforcing this fact: states’ expect the child to pay if they can. The best way to avoid having to foot the bill is to plan ahead, urges Mr. Beatrice. Only about half of adults have done estate planning, and 80% of those plans wont help. One must understand the difference between a revocable vs. irrevocable trust; asset protection is not gained with a revocable living trust. They only avoid probate; that doesnt help here. The threat of having to pay for your parents care can be easily alleviated by simply using the right type of high-quality trust; all trusts are not all the same.
With so many threats to your savings, including these filial responsibility laws, typical estate planning offers very little protection. With a expert-crafted Irrevocable Trust, one can enjoy their savings without losing sleep over what could happen, clarifies Mr. Beatrice.
