Opinion Today: The End of Inheritance

As health and elder care costs rise, it becomes more and more of a struggle for individuals to afford end-of-life care. With this, the middle-class dream of leaving something behind for children and loved ones seems less realistic. A reasonable and balanced political conversation regarding elder care is woefully overdue.
