The Older Americans Act (OAA) is the single most important piece of legislation offering support to aging populations in the U.S. and their caregivers so that elderly Americans can live with dignity. There’s no question that it should be reauthorized to support the aging U.S. population.
The federal government already spends far too much on old people, to the detriment of its spending on children. In particular, this bill’s aggressive ramp-up of federal spending on the Older Americans Act (OAA) is too extreme, and will inevitably lead to skimping elsewhere in an already bloated and overextended federal budget.
