"Particularly in today's economy, people should educate themselves about the many choices and opportunities they have for themselves and their families to meet the challenges of living a long life - and ensuring the best quality of life that they can," said Genworth spokesperson Wendy Boglioli. "Issues of economics and health care go hand-in-hand, starting at a personal level and on up to a national level for our new President and h
