I think AARP is smart enough to take a careful and considered approach and back innovations that have been proven successful. Bankruptcy is not even remotely the likely result of the health care reforms in process. This has been done before successfully in Europe and without disastrous economic consequences. Done before successfully. They started as far back as the 80's and their average per capita DGP growth has been very close to ours. The health of their citizens is superior and their costs lower, and their economies are as well as ours. They are smart enough to have health care for their citizens. Are we to believe that Americans as a people are less capable to the Europeans? We can’t execute and adapt solutions they have? I think quite the opposite is true. It isn't rocket science – start by being smart enough to use what has already worked as a model, modify the model to your particular situation , then innovate. AARP is thinking clearly. Are you?
Thank you for bringing the subject back to health care reform rather than accepting the false premise implied by the author of this topic that AARP is backing President Obama carte blanche. As I understand it, AARP is backing health care reform because it is in the best interests of their members.
And I notice in another reply accepting the false premise of the topic that because AARP is allegedly backing the president, the posters (kwcunn) are cancelling their membership.
I wonder why kwcunn did not cancel their AARP with health care legislation (MMA2003) passed in the Bush administration? Was it political for them?
