    What you are actually saying is that the elderly have no business spending their savings or selling their house to pay for their own care. Much better to keep their money in the bank to pass on to their kids when they eventually pop their clogs.
    No, the only difference between our positions is that you want money up front, and I want the government to collect it after death in inheritance tax instead (as well as the tax that they've paid all their life anyway). As MoK says, every argument you make could be made about the NHS too. Why should the NHS pay for your heart operation when you've got millions in the bank? Why not means test that too?
