Arbitraging Grandma - HCR in Trouble

QCP, the REIT holding title to most of HCR Manorcare's real estate, served notice on the Securities and Exchange commission (8/18/17) of a pending receivership filing in a California state court.

So Where Are We At?

The GOP is in chaos.

Congress is stuck in the mud.

Obamacare is not imploding, but may suffer from benign neglect or intentional sabotage.

MACRA/MIPS is a huge expensive headache.

Long term planning is not possible.

Meanwhile, health care goes on - to an uncertain fate.
