OBAMACARE: IS AARP TURNING SOCIALIST AND THROWING SENIORS UNDER THE BUS IN FAVOR OF POLITICAL IDEOLOGY?
Is this my membership money they are spending to provide aid and comfort to the Obama Administration?
According to PRNewswire …
“Multimillion-Dollar AARP Campaign Busts the Myths of the Health Care Debate”
“Campaign couples power of 40 million members, reach of national ad blitz”
“This week, AARP will launch the next phase of its Health Action Now campaign with a multimillion-dollar national advertising and grassroots push to ensure every American has a choice of doctor and dependable, affordable health insurance. AARP's paid advertising--available online now--will run nationally on television, locally on radio, in print publications and online. AARP activists will also be in action in every state to ensure every member of Congress knows the 50-plus community wants action to fix what's wrong with health care and preserve what's right.”
Following the socialist democrat plan laid down by the house leadership?
“AARP's advertising campaign will bust the myths some are spreading to frighten Americans, including false assertions that fixing the health care system will lead to rationed health care, a government takeover or even euthanasia.”
AARP is lying …
It is a fact: AARP does not know what is contained in the final bill – because it has yet to be written. All that exists are 1,000+ page drafts filled with paragraph headers that purport to “broadly” define healthcare concepts. All the real details are masked from the public’s view because they haven’t been written – the greatest power is ceded to the Administration’s agencies and czars who will provide the “implementation” guidelines when the time comes – after the passage of the bill.
AARP is blind, stupid and corrupt …
Only an ignorant person would not believe that “prioritization” is not a code word for rationing. Ask yourself what will happen if you add millions of people to the system without a corresponding increase in the number of doctors and facilities? In the medical world it is known as “triage.” Prioritizing the patients you will see by the severity of their conditions, making some wait while more critical cases are handled.
And what about the “best practices” component of cost containment. Where statistical outcomes might determine that you are less likely to receive a hip replacement at 85 to relieve pain and mobility based on the outcome of the surgery, your family support group and your value as a contributing member of society. Life and death committees are already a reality in dealing with scarce organ transplants – and there is no evidence that this will not continue in the future.
The big lie …
"’We won't stand idle when opponents of health care reform attempt to scare or mislead the American people--and older Americans in particular--about what fixing the system really means,’ said AARP Illinois State Director Bob Gallo. ‘The truth is we need to fix health care, whether it's ensuring affordable coverage for Americans age 50 to 64 or improving benefits for people in Medicare. It's time for the public to get the real facts.’"
Apparently AARP is willing to stand by and believe the Administration’s lies when they try to scare the public into believing it is urgently necessary to destroy 85% of the nation’s functioning healthcare system to serve an additional 37 million people – including 12 –20 million illegal aliens who should not be given any rights that are paid for by the citizens and legal residents of the United States.
What about this blatant lie?
White House 'Reality Check’ Claims Health Care Reform ‘Would Not Add One Penny to Deficit,’ Despite CBO Reports to Contrary
(CNSNews.com) – A new Web site launched Monday by the Obama administration to rebut alleged disinformation about the administration's efforts to reform the health care system claims that reform “would not add one penny to the deficit." But a Congressional Budget Office analysis says two health-care reform bills would increase the national debt by $239 billion and $1.042 trillion, respectively. In fact, the administration has not produced any health-care reform legislation that has been independently determined to be deficit-neutral.
Or this little tidbit ?
Or this – proving it’s about soviet-style control …
Dirty secret No. 1 in Obamacare is about the government's coming into homes and usurping parental rights over child care and development.
It's outlined in sections 440 and 1904 of the House bill (Page 838), under the heading "home visitation programs for families with young children and families expecting children." The programs (provided via grants to states) would educate parents on child behavior and parenting skills.
The bill says that the government agents, "well-trained and competent staff," would "provide parents with knowledge of age-appropriate child development in cognitive, language, social, emotional, and motor domains ... modeling, consulting, and coaching on parenting practices," and "skills to interact with their child to enhance age-appropriate development."
Are you kidding me?! With whose parental principles and values? Their own? Certain experts'? From what field and theory of childhood development? As if there are one-size-fits-all parenting techniques! Do we really believe they would contextualize and personalize every form of parenting in their education, or would they merely universally indoctrinate with their own?<More>
What is really in this legislation?
EXCLUSIVE: Panel sees race bias in health care bill: Provisions designed to help underserved areas
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights says some little-noticed provisions in the House health care bill are racially discriminatory, and it intends to ask President Obama and Congress to rewrite sections that factor in race when awarding billions in contracts, scholarships and grants. The commission also fears the programs, which are designed to improve health care in underserved areas, will not be effective. <More>
Right out of Obama’s socialist community organizer handbook …
“AARP will combine this effort with grassroots action by millions of volunteers and activists. AARP members will visit their representatives and senators in their district offices and attend events in support of health care reform. The Association will also host more than 80 events with legislators and community leaders across the country.”
More phony rigger Town Hall meetings as per the direction of the democrat leadership’s August memo?
To: Democratic Members of Congress
From: House Democratic Leadership
Date: Friday, July 31, 2009
Re: Strategic Communications Plan for August: Health Insurance Reform
The Leadership is working in close coordination with the White House and outside groups (including but not limited to HCAN, Families USA, AFSCME, SEIU, AARP, etc.) to ensure complementary efforts during August. <Source>
Starting in the cradle of political thuggery and corruption …
“In Illinois, AARP will be having conversations with AARP members and press conferences, aimed at getting the public the facts and ‘busting’ the health care reform myths being spread. AARP will hold ‘Rx for health care reform’ events in every Congressional district in Illinois, where volunteers will deliver thousands of Rx pill bottles filled with personal health care stories from constituents to their members of Congress, highlighting the need for reform.”
Every time an AARP commercial runs – remember that AARP sold you out to the socialists …
“This round of advertising is scheduled to run through mid-September in national outlets and in select local markets. Television advertisements will appear on networks including CBS, Fox News Channel, Lifetime and MSNBC, while online ads will appear on Web sites including CNN.com and ABCNews.com, as well as social networking sites.”
Bottom line: It’s not about healthcare, it’s about controlling the United States economy and your rights as citizens … all aided and abetted by AARP!
Can you believe any organization or government willing to use socialist community organizing tactics and union thugs to keep you from finding out the truth?
Can you trust an organization with a built-in conflict of interest and a history of corruption involving the insurance industry?
Can you trust an organization that sends its white political spokesman out and hides its black president in the background? Why isn’t AARP’s president making the television rounds and answering the hard questions? He reportedly gave Obama $9,000 and is in the tank for Obama – so can we trust him? I think NOT! His loyalty is to preserving and extending his corporate power over an enterprise which has grown fat from selling “for profit” insurance and drugs to senior citizens. And is he planning to play the race card as the Obama Administration is wont to do when they run into difficulty?
Just asking... because it is a pattern of behavior we have seen before. Corrupt leadership in the government and in the private sector where corporations are seeking special advantage by spreading government propaganda.
I want to hear from other AARP members – what do you think about this sell-out of senior citizen’s interests?
