An interesting story as we think about health care

I met a man with a deep understanding of the Red Words, who told me a little of his life and how he spent $180,000 resolving medical issues associated with a stoke.  Little was done, given the amount spent and the available technology and medical sciences.

Today, he believes, based on sound medical opinion, that exercise, surgery or medication could eliminate the de-habilitating impact on his sight, mobility and hearing.

After spending his life, saving, my friend lives comfortably in a 250 square foot home with nothing but the bible and his spirit.

Where is the VA for a VIET NAM vet; there were provisions made under Nixon for long-term medical care?

What should a more balanced system do to afford my friend a comfortable retirement?
