Medicare Part G April 8, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Health & Wellness, Humor, Joke.

If you are a senior senior citizen who needs Long-Term Care, but Medicare says there is no Nursing Home bed for you, what do you do?

Opt for Medicare Part G!

The plan gives anyone 75 or older a Gun (the “G” Part!) and one bullet. To qualify for Part G benefits, shoot one worthless politician.

The higher up the ladder the better.

After you are convicted, you will be sent to prison “for life” where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, a gym, and all the health care you need.

Need new teeth? New glasses?  A new hearing aid?
No problem.  They are all covered.

As an added bonus, when your kids and grandkids come and visit, you no longer need to cook, clean, or do laundry for them!

Better still ~> because you are a prisoner, you won’t have to pay any more income taxes!

Tax day . . . Schmacks day!

And, who will be paying for all of this?

The same government that can’t afford for you to go into a nursing home.

Is this a great country or what?

Aah . . . that’s better!

Now that you have solved your senior Long-Term Care problem, go enjoy the weekend!

So so sad, but so so true!

I have to agree with, Tina. It’s no wonder our system is so overcrowded.

nrhatch - April 8, 2017

Yes. Spending allocations in D.C. need to be sorted out in a better fashion ~ I doubt the present administration is right for the job.

Jill Weatherholt - April 8, 2017

I don’t think anyone is Washington is…sigh…

nrhatch - April 8, 2017

No argument there, Jill.

3. Ally Bean - April 8, 2017

Well, it’s a thought…

nrhatch - April 8, 2017

I prefer life “on the outside” too much to opt for Medicare Part G, but it seemed like a great post . . . for the week before Tax Day!

4. Kate Crimmins - April 8, 2017

Do they serve Starbucks?

nrhatch - April 8, 2017

OMG, Kate . . . I didn’t even think of that! I guess that would be a deal breaker for you, wouldn’t it? 😀

5. Val Boyko - April 8, 2017

Ouch! I love how you state the truth with humor Nancy 💛

nrhatch - April 8, 2017

I debated posting this one, Val. But it does seem relevant ~ if we are willing to house, feed, and clothes criminals as a punitive measure, perhaps we need to rethink our current unwillingness to care for the elderly, the sick, and the disabled.

Fortunately, I can find a way to prison as alternative housing without shooting a politician! LOL! There’s a lot of truth in this, though, isn’t there! The politicians certainly don’t have our backs!

nrhatch - April 10, 2017

Lots of perks for our politicians . . . but the downside to their chosen profession is that they are surrounded by other politicians.


7. L. Marie - April 10, 2017

Sigh. As others have said, sad but true.

nrhatch - April 10, 2017

Yup. We are not where we need to be . . . yet.

8. Tammy - April 10, 2017

I tend to agree with some of that but I also believe that there may be a whole lot of people on the inside that would rather be on the outside and frankly, it should be considered. Our for-profit prison system has had an interesting effect on incarceration.

nrhatch - April 10, 2017

Good thoughts, Tammy. I agree with you . . .

9. Tiny - April 10, 2017

I think I’ll opt for part H instead 🙂 but it rings true, unfortunately.

nrhatch - April 10, 2017

Part H ~> maintaining a sense of HUMOR . . . because life is better with laughter! 😀

Tiny - April 10, 2017

That’s right 😂😂

This is so interesting and thought provoking. Medicare, and health insurance in general, can be tricky. Funnily enough, I just wrote up something similar about health insurance, and whether the cost should depend on one’s health status (whether sicker people should have higher premiums). Food for thought!

nrhatch - September 21, 2017

Definitely things to think about . . . as are the questions posed in your recent Time Travel post.

I’m going to get back to your “what ifs” soon.
