    Alzheimers was (is) one of a long list of "excluded" coverages from my former health insurance provider.

    Thanks goodness for ACA.

    Remember your neighbors suffering from Alzheimers when it's time to vote. And remember that Mitt promises to strip even this coverage from them and leave them swinging in the wind.

    It's good that the states are taking initiative on dealing with the impact that the care of Alzheimer's is going to entail. It's going to take some doing to set up state institutions that help curb the power to take financial advantage of those that are ill, probably via inspection of records and business practices.

    It will also take some doing to get past those that would attempt to stop all state and federal help on the basis that it will cost taxpayer dollers.
