Valorie Bachelor, Falls Church

“In July, my father who was 85 years old passed away. The last month or so of his life we had him in hospice care. That could’ve bankrupted my family and the fact that it was paid for fully by Medicare and we didn’t have to deal with any of that was a huge help to my family. My mom and I were thinking about what we were going to do with the house, with the cars, and it would have literally bankrupted us. The same situation could happen to another family who would have to figure out how to get 30, 40 or $50,000 to care for a loved one. It just kills me to think that something like that could happen. I just want to tell Senator Warner that these cuts are not right for Virginia residents.”
