The event will also include a second panel discussion with members of congress and speakers from policy institutions including The CATO Institute, Third Way, Heritage Foundation and The Center for American Progress

 

WHY:            

 

With nearly 80 million Americans approaching retirement age, and one-half of seniors likely to require long term care at some point in their lives, the discussion on how to pay for that care is becoming increasingly urgent. 

 

Healthcare reform continues to be a leading theme in this election, and with it comes the question of how to provide long term care for our aging population.
