Who’s more likely to make sure Americans can afford to pay for long-term care? According to a poll released Wednesday by LTC Financial Partners, a long-term care insurance agency, it’s the Republican presidential candidate, whoever that may be.
The surprising finding, because of President Obama’s support of the Health Care Act, in a survey by LTCFP that asked which candidate, Obama or “The Republican Choice,” would be more likely to support federal incentives that help Americans afford private long-term care insurance, two-thirds picked the unnamed Republican candidate as of Wednesday. The poll will be open until the election.
Although the Affordable Care Act originally included a public option for long-term care insurance, the CLASS Act, it was dropped in October because of fears over its ability to remain solvent for the 75 years mandated by law.
