Obamacare: White House Reality Check?
Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer: the real un-Americans who are lying to the people.

Not another dime for AARP -- Screw Them!

It just angered me no end that I received an e-mail asking me to contribute money to AARP …

Dear STEPHEN,

We’ve launched the AARP Recovery Plan to bring real relief to seniors during this economic crisis. This crisis is particularly devastating for seniors on fixed incomes or in poverty already, and many are struggling just to cover daily expenses.

80-year-old Elizabeth was facing welfare

80-year-old Elizabeth was facing welfare
unless she could find a job to help support her teenage grandsons in her custody. Since she was too proud to accept welfare, she came to us for help.  

That very day we got a call from an employer looking for an experienced worker and we were able to recommend Elizabeth. She worked out so well they made her employee of the month, and now she is able to take care of her family.

How to give

As more individuals seek help from the AARP Foundation, such high demand could exceed our resources. That’s why we’re depending on your gift today of $25, $35, $50, or even $100 to help the growing number of seniors who are hurting in these difficult times.
If it’s possible, I hope you will send a tax-deductible gift today of whatever amount you can afford.

A touching story … just the type of story a major insurance company would tell to sell their wares! I am not impressed.

What, you think I am crazy and willing to sacrifice my life for Obamacare’s cost cutting scheme?

Why the hell would anyone in his right mind support an organization that blindly supports Obama’s healthcare initiative without even having the facts at hand? Telling senior citizens that this program is worthy of their support – based on nothing more than talking points, vague legislation initiatives and the unknown details which are being left up to the Secretaries and czars to implement.

Why would I support this organization when their “for profit” enterprise of selling insurance and drugs to senior citizens is a open conflict of interest?

Why would I support any organization that has turned lobbying for seniors into lobbying against seniors by supporting a “best practices” approach to healthcare which might, in all probability, go beyond cutting costs for unnecessary procedures and drugs – right to denying needed medical care for seniors who do not have the best chances for a successful outcome?

My answer to AARP: Screw You!

Capture

Oh – and by the way – before you tell me that you have not endorsed any healthcare initiative, I will call “bullshit!”

Be safe, be well and take care of yourself and your family first.
