U.S. House votes Feb. 1 on
restricting donations to churches
We have received the
following and verified the information. The message below is from
Jim Zeigler who many of you may remember from his defense of Judge
Roy Moore in Alabama.

Your help is needed NOW to stop your
church offerings from being cut. Please quickly e-mail this to
all church members nationally:
WASHINGTON -- The tithes and offerings of senior citizens would be
curtailed by a bill expected to come up for a vote in the U.S.
House Feb. 1.
S. 1932 changes the rules for Medicaid nursing home eligibility.
Now, a senior can gift to his church and not make himself
ineligible for nursing home coverage.
Under the new rule, every gift from a senior will be totaled for
the five years preceding nursing home admission. The senior will
then be ineligible for nursing home care and have to pay his own
bill ($4,000 to $7,000 a month) until a "penalty period" is over.
This penalty would cause economic hardship for families of
faithful givers. It would also cause many seniors to stop giving,
hurting churches and charities.
The penalty affects all giving by seniors � college tuition for
grandchildren; emergency help for family; Christmas, birthday,
wedding and graduation presents; charitable and church donations.
All these will be totaled for five years, and then the senior will
be penalized for every dollar gifted.
Grandma and Grandpa will not be able to give any more. For many
churches, senior citizens are the lifeblood.
While the intent of the bill is to stop wealthy seniors from
transferring assets and qualifying for Medicaid nursing home
coverage, it does not do so. The affluent and their lawyers can
still legally do "asset protection." Instead, the unintended
consequences of the bill are to curtail normal giving by seniors
and devastate churches across America.
Few church leaders know about this bill. It passed the U.S.
Senate Dec. 21, 2005. The only chance to remove it is in the U.S.
House February 1. Please ask your Congressman to vote "no" on S.
1932 unless this change in the "penalty start date" is removed.
Please take three actions now to stop this gutting of church
1. Quickly contact your Congressman
(U.S. Representative) and ask him or her to vote NO on S. 1932
unless this change in the "penalty start date" is removed. (No
need to contact your U.S. Senators - they passed this already.)
You may get the name and contact info of your own Congressman at:
2. Quickly send this e-mail to all
active church members. Keep sending more and more copies of it
until you hear that the U.S. House has passed the budget bill.
3. Ask all active church members
to do these same two things.
If you and I do nothing, this provision is expected to pass. If
we do the three steps above, we can block it. An earlier version
passed by only four votes in the House. If you will ask your
Congressman to vote NO unless this provision is removed, I and
hundreds of others will do the same.
Please do not wait to start the three steps above. Your help NOW
can make a difference.
Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only.

It is sad but most of our Congressmen do not provide direct
email addresses, instead using these internet forms, many of which
require a 9 digit zip code. If they do not want to make it easy for
their constituents to contact them maybe they should be retired from

There are well-meaning Congressional staffers and others
giving out wrong information. They say this provision is not
in the bill. They are irresponsibly and dangerously WRONG.
The standard Washington line is: "This bill is intended to
stop millionaires from transfering assets and qualifying for
Medicaid." That was indeed the intention. But the bill does
not do so. The affluent and their lawyers will still be able
to legally do "asset protection" even if the bill passes as
is. The bill does nothing to stop that. What it instead does
is penalize faithful church givers and normal gifting --
Christmas, birthdays, grandchildren, college 529 plans, etc.
CONFIRMATION. A meeting was held on Friday, Jan. 13
of the Section on ElderLaw of the Alabama Bar Association.
They agree 100% with the devastating effects of S. 1932 on
gifting by seniors, and they sent my
email to all elderlaw attorneys in the state.
