I am, once again, outraged that AARP is railing against Congress to give the appearance that they are fighting against any attempt to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits as a method for cutting back the budget and reducing the deficit.
Is this the same AARP who used its member’s money to run ad campaigns and petition drives to support OBAMAcare – full well knowing that $500 BILLION would be taken out of the Medicare Advantage program to help fund the program? (Note: the for-profit portion of AARP does not promote an Advantage Insurance Program; only a standard Medigap program.)
Is this the same AARP who unconditionally supports Obama’s medical nightmare which would greatly expand coverage to 12 million additional people (many illegal aliens) without increasing physicians, nurses, medical facilities, diagnostic devices and other critical infrastructure – thus guaranteeing more insurance denials, delays – and potentially DEATH?
Is this the same AARP who sits idly by while women are denied treatment with a breast cancer drug that is being removed from insurance approval list because it ONLY HELPS SOME PEOPLE – and not everyone?
So I find the following pitch to be dishonest, disingenuous and disgusting …
Bottom line …
Somehow, AARP, under the leadership of “A. Barry Rand,” is no longer protecting senior citizens but appears to be acting as a shill for the Obama Administration. Could it be Rand’s personal politics? AARP’s for-profit benefit? Or a combination of reasons that have little or nothing to do with protecting senior citizens from Obama and his fellow travelers in the healthcare field?
Remember this when you vote. Remember this when you decide on membership? And perhaps, if enough people complain, Rand will go the way of all professional political lobbyists – somewhere else.
