Andrew O'Reilly, Real Estate Agent Seaport Real Estate Services

Circumstance resulting when government expenditures exceed government income. To finance this difference, the United States Treasury will auction Treasury bills, notes, and bonds. In order to attract investors such as insurance companies, the Treasury will pay higher interest rates on the new issues, resulting in a decline in bond (already issued) prices and the increase in their rates.

Hi Marilyn!  Since your mother is over 65 and has been receiving long term care financed through Medicaid, according to the Medicaid Estate Recovery Program,  your mother's house could be used to repay some of her Medicaid benefits.
