IBD Exclusive Series: Government-Run Healthcare: A Prescription For Failure
Discourse: At a town hall last week in Dallas, an elderly "mob" with "manufactured" outrage questioned AARP's support for nationalized health care, asking: "Do you work for us or do we work for you?"
But they were mad as hell at the perception that AARP was selling them out in the name of government-run medical insurance. That perception was not helped when the AARP town hall on the subject was shut down by the seniors outfit once the members dared to ask questions. The AARP representatives did not want to hear from the members at all. Just send in your dues, granny, and be quiet.
AARP denies being in league with the administration in pushing its medical insurance agenda. But as Mark Tapscott, editorial page editor for the Washington Examiner reports, that claim may be bogus despite a statement by AARP CEO Barry Rand in the July 31 issue that "AARP has not endorsed any of the bills currently being debated in Congress."
On Monday, Connie Hair of Human Events reported on a memo from Pelosi in which the speaker described the Democrats' plan to "partner" with AARP as part of a planned August recess PR blitz for government expansion of medical insurance. The fiasco in Dallas was an example of that partnership.

AARP should be marginalized into the bin of history. They are leftist socialists and communists. I refuse to join this cabal!! NEVER!!!
We can only hope that AARP is finally being exposed for the liberal organization that it is. This exposure is long overdue.
Right on the money and thank you!
AARP just lost me as a member.
Just ask the AARP for a list of political contributions they’ve made for the last ten years. Make it a short list, just ask for the list of Republicans they’ve contributed to.
They’ll never get a dime from me in my lifetime simply because they give money to “Handgun Control Inc.”.
I put everything I get from them immediately through my shredder
AARP is FULL OF CRAP, here is a website that THEY sponsor, which is full of lies:
What a great title!
I hate to admit it, but AARP has been sending me crap since I was 45, trying to soften me up. But I already realized, they are just giving away $3 off coupons on pizza, ice cream and movie tickets to get a place at the table in the beltway. F them.
What is the age to be a geezer?
I am approaching 52 and I do not have insurance...
I still do not want the government to take over...
my next birthday makes me a full deck without the jokers...
Obama wants to add the jokers!!
Those dang grey haired dissidents, at it again. What will AARP do to protect themselves against such rabble? I know, ignore them and leave the room.
Great business model. ;-)
I can't wait to get their latest mailer, What can we do to raise their postal rates by returning their junk...
Been doing this for years. Yet, they keep sending invites. They pay the postage so I dont care Im retired and have plenty of free time on my hands. ;-)
Mind your nouns. They ride on a Donkey! :)
I send it back unopened. I mark it ‘refused mail’. I believe they than have to pay the return postage costs. if so that is just a few less coins for them to contribute to the anti-second amendment orgs. and the anti-hunting groups.
