AARP not only supports Obama's health care plan, it is militantly attacking those who are voicing concerns over rushing into it before people have a real opportunity to (1) learn what is contained in the 1,018 page House bill and (2) have a reasonable national conversation about whether we really want to spend trillions of dollars on a government run program while basically destroying the system we now have. Granted the current situation is not the ideal, but does it warrant a wholesale replacement by a system which is unknown and untested?
Massachusetts and Tennesse have health plans administered by the governement, and the results have been awful. Medicare and Medicaid are govenment run health care programs, and both are headed for bankruptcy in a few years. As with other government programs, there will be massive waste, inefficiency and very poor service. Name one government program that isn't. Inform yourself on the Canadian and British models, also awful.
It is evident that seniors will be particularly affected by ObamaCare. Obama has virtually said as much. Instead of a new hip, they'll give you some painkillers while you vegetate, immobilized. He would rather see resources (that is, doctors and money) used to care for younger illegal aliens (yes, they would be covered under ObamaCare) rather than take care of seniors who have shorter life expectancies. Heartless. Your AARP dues are going to support lobbying efforts to reduce the quality of healthcare you are receiving and thus reducing your quality of life. You may think Obama is a nice guy, but he is not looking out for seniors.
Today it has been reported that AARP has endorsed the HORRIFIC obama health careless plan. As of this moment I will no longer support AARP in any way. I am using every means at my disposal to ask all other seniors to cut up their AARP membership cards and mail them to AARP. AARP has grown increasingly liberal the past several years. This endorsement far surpasses any other action which, is not in the best interest of seniors, that AARP has yet stuped to. There are other organizations for seniors that aren't in the liberal hip pocket. I urge all seniors to show your disgust at this numbskull endorsement of a absolutely horrible plan. The liberal plan is now over 2,000 pages in length and absolutely impossible to read and understand. It is an endless document of references to other documents. I would like to know the names of those who wrote this abomination. It is obvious it was purposely constructed so it cannot be understood. Do you suppose this was done so that no one can understand it so that it can be interrepted in any way that Pelosi, Reid and their henchmen can then do whatever they please and claim "it is the law"? Please seniors voice your disgust at this monstrosity. We are a large and thus powerful group, apparently not supported by AARP, and we must act swiftly to stop this proposed legislation.
