Part of the new budget plans on removing a majority of funding for the program
As someone with family members that use this service, I can safely say that removing it likely will speed up the date at which they die.
I'm sure this will be defended and justified somehow. I for one cannot understand any capacity for a program like this to be slashed. When coupled with the potential collapse of Medicare/Medicaid under the AHCA, we'll be seeing some major negative effects on the elderly.
