39,000 nursing home eviction notices to be sent in Louisiana Thursday

"Sen. Sharon Hewitt, R-Slidell, said the Department of Health should be focused on identifying fraud and saving money there “rather than kicking grandma out of the nursing home.”

Sen. Bodi White, R-Baton Rouge, said he believes sending the notification to nursing home residents and others in long-term residential care is premature. “I don’t see how in good conscience they can do that to these older folks,” White said."

Okay, so here’s the kicker. “Next year’s shortfall was created because about $1.4 billion in temporary taxes expire June 30. The bulk of the expiring taxes, about $880 million, comes from a one-cent sales tax.”

So, the bulk of the tax cuts (thus causing something like this) is a battle over one penny in sales tax.

Pfft. Just more poor people mooching from the rich.

Department of Health spokesman Bob Johannessen said. “The goal of the department is to give notice to all affected people as soon as possible in order that they begin developing their appropriate plans.”

Like what? Dying?

Where’s Ray Nagin when you need him. He could fix this.

Are you guys sending them money to prevent it, or just complaining?

A similar question has been posed to you countless times regarding your constant regurgitation of “Venezuela” yet you never seem to answer. :thinking:

get those free loaders off the governments dime…

They’re not pushing grannies off a cliff!

Just out into the parking lot.

Lazy old people sucking at the governments teat. Maybe they should stop being takers and start being makers. Jesus said to ignore the poor and sick so these people are just getting what they deserve.

Mass chaos.

“If this program is eliminated, nursing facilities will be forced into bankruptcy, which will trigger a massive layoff statewide including the approximately 26,000 people employed by Louisiana’s nursing facilities,” he said. “With the nursing facilities bankrupt, hospitals will have no place to discharge patients.”

Louisiana is beginning to look like Venezuela nowadays.
