Seniors, Did You Know…?

Obamacare Cuts Medicare Costs SC Seniors, Did You Know...?

Does anyone know, or care, for that matter that AARP agreed to endorse Obamacare because it gains an unfair advantage from the program? AARP told the Obama administration that they would endorse his pet program if Obamacare would eliminate Medicare Advantage (about 25% of recipients use it to cut costs to themselves, as I do) and force those on the advantage program to seek Medicare Supplemental Insurance (from which AARP makes BILLIONS simply by endorsing). The benefit of this arrangement is NOT to the people receiving the benefits, but to AARP. Big Pharma (the pharmaceutical industry as a whole) also cut a deal with Obama. They would endorse Obamacare if the program would prevent citizens from going to other countries (like Canada) to buy their cheaper drugs. The benefit, again, is NOT to people seeking a lower drug cost, but to the big pharmaceutical companies looking for a way to eliminate competition. Say…isn’t there a law against price-fixing? I guess it only applies to companies that are not kissing Obama’s ….er…ring!

The Medicare Advantage elimination was supposed to take place BEFORE the election; but Obama, being the wily politician that he is, had Nancy Pelosi delay the action until AFTER the election. Do you think he might have been afraid to tick off a couple million seniors by stealing their coverage? What happened to Obama’s “you can keep the coverage that you have” line of B.S.? Seniors, have you noticed that an awful lot of doctors are suddenly retiring or getting out of private practice? Have you done any research as to the number of people  who are no longer considering medical school here in the United States? Maybe you should start considering learning a foreign language so that you’ll be able to better understand the physicians who are going to be filling the gap. It’ll give you a new hobby to keep you occupied.

Social Security started out with good intentions, but it has evolved into a charity plan that cannot be sustained with the dwindling population that is now engaged in a “ponzi scheme”. Where does the money come from to pay the children of deceased payees? That money is on top of what widows get. If you have more people taking money out of a program than you have putting in, the program is going to bankrupt in the near future despite the empty promises of the politicians to the contrary. The situation is about to get much worse in the next couple of years when a whole lot of baby boomers stop paying into the system and start taking OUT of the system. Romney/Ryan want to REFORM the system to preserve it, while Obama and the Progressives want to ignore it long enough to retire with their GOVERNMENT GUARENTEED pensions, leaving all of us to fend for ourselves.

For some reason, the Progressives in both parties think that because we get older, we get dumber; and that’s why they resort to scare tactics rather than sound economic policy. My wife and I worked all our lives (starting at 16); when we became disabled 10 years ago, we expected our investment to take care of us. Millions of seniors feel the same way, but the politicians like to speak out of both sides of their mouth and use Mediscare tactics if you dare question their responses to the problems facing entitlements. When the government starts using a realistic index to calculate the actual cost of living (they don’t figure in energy costs or food) then they can criticize us for wanting what we all paid for! Government employees get steady cost-of-living raises; but when it comes to Social Security and Medicare, the government doesn’t want to apply the same rules to us as they do to themselves.

Those faceless bureaucrats don’t care if the elderly or disabled eat pet food or can’t pay their utilities as long as those people keep believing the lies and remain loyal voters of their party. Obama has made more promises to more people and groups that he has broken than any other president that I can remember in my lifetime. Seniors, are we really, as a group, going to continue allowing ourselves to be frightened into ignoring the truth and being manipulated into settling for what the Progressives want to dole out to us; or are you willing to vote for people who are willing to reform the system, save your benefits, and make sure the programs are going to be there for your children and grandchildren? On November 6th, you will have a chance to decide. I pray that you will keep these words in mind. May God bless you all and the United States of America. Adieu.

  1. Which is why I never became a member and send all their advertising addressed to me back to them.

    • Why do we have a long history of paying more for medications than other nations ? The cancer center I worked at received numerous free lunches from drug reps. In the year 2004 it was estimated that the pharmaceuticals spent around 61,000 promotional US dollars per physician. Drug companies underwrite more than half of doctors' continuing medical education. Drug companies don't make their biggest rewards by selling effective, quality medications. But by selling politically protected medicine as fast as possible before the patent expires. Watch TV advertisements. The system is corrupt. In 2009 healthcare lobbying =$263 million, Pharmaceuticals alone were $134 million. So either way WE pay.

  2. For years I use to think that AARP was a reputable organization who's sole mission was to protect the elderly! Boy was I wrong! They are a huge business of profit and power! They sold out their members by supporting Obama and his healthcare debacle. AARP receives kickbacks for all of their endorsements that you see on TV. There are alternatives to AARP who aren't in bed with Obama! I won't mention names but a quick search will get results.

  3. OBAMA IS A LYING SACK OF SHIT! I CAN'T REMEMBER HATING ANYONE AS MUCH AS I HATE THIS SORRY EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING…

  4. We canceled our AARP policy two weeks ago. There are alternatives–GO TO THEM!!!

    • There are other groups. Try AMAC . It is the conservative version to AARP and is reasonable to join.
      Send all AARP mail back to them with a dirty note in the envelope they always send to you. They get to pay the postage and you get to blast them.

  5. Every day that passes with the Fed giving out free loans, and everytime Bernanke prints more money, Seniors are having themselves robbed blind. The Seniors are, without ever being asked of course, supporting The Progressive take over of America.

    If you believe Bush had ANYTHING to do with our current worldwide
    financial crisis, you owe it to yourself to go to http://www.gov-truth.com and
    download "Siren's Song – America's Betrayal". It may be the most important thing you can read today. Spread the truth. Pass this site along to your friends. [Rev. 3 - 9/28/12 is now online]

  6. I told you AARP was full of shit!! Just another corrupt OBAMACARE supporter!!

  7. Did you say sound economic policy ? When banks are allowed to keep only 10 % of their worth in cash (thanks to our politicians)and to leverage monies without limit to buy risky investments, fail and leave the FDIC (taxpayers ) to bail them out. A system built mostly on debt is sound ? When China was granted most favored nation status in1999. We import their goods at 2.5 % tax. But American goods are imported into China at a 25 % tax. China devalued its currency, the yuan, by 60 %. Add that to the low labor and you can see where all our investment dollars have gone. Most large companies have moved their research and development to Asia. China graduates 335 ,000 engineers a year.Politicians do nothing but TALK @ deficit.

  8. I fear elderly people will be fooled by the constant ads from AARPon TV. Many of us are aware that AARP
    has been in Obama's pocket from the start, but I think many do not know. Many people are not aware of justhow bad Obama care is and they think that AARP is still looking out for seniors. A new article from themtalks about considering when to end life, SOOOOOO you know what will come next.

    Please tell everyone that AARP is for themselves and this administration, not us.

Speak Your Mind
