DIED in Committee-Adding a Medicaid style look back period to Aid and Attendance and lengthening Medicaid

In an era of trillion dollar deficits, more than a few politicians are looking for possible ways to slow down the growth of government spending if not reduce it.  Almost every government program is a target.  In the last 12 months legislation was introduced proposing to add a three year medicaid-style look back period to VA Aid and Attendance (see Senate Bill 3270) and to lengthen the look back period for medicaid from 5 years to 10 years (see House Bill 6300).  Both bills have essentially died in committee and will likely never been introduced for a vote.  However, it would not surpise me if both were revisited in the future in some fashion.
