AARP's ObamaCare Endgame Revealed

We now have a clear picture of the treachery in which AARP has engaged since President Obama took office. The Daily Caller reports that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has granted Medigap policy sellers, including the American Association of Retired Persons, exemption from ObamaCare-mandated federal supervision of insurance premium hikes. "Medigap" is an industry term for a type of coverage that helps pay medical costs not covered by Medicare.
Non-Medigap insurers, not exempted from ObamaCare's rate reviews, must justify rate increases. In effect, the HHS exemption gives AARP the ability to generate profits not achievable by non-exempted competitors.
It's important to remember that AARP helped push ObamaCare through Congress by contributing to a $121 million advertising campaign and paying for millions of dollars worth of Washington lobbying. AARP has betrayed the seniors whose interests the organization allegedly protects and positioned itself to make billions after playing along with the Obama administration's corporatist favoritism.

The AARP has to be one of the more vile interest groups.

AARP isn’t just an insurance company, it’s a crooked insurance company. Warn everybody you know.
I have canceled my membership in AARP.

IMHO AARP is a liberal front group masquerading as a senior citizens organization.

I used to be an AARP member. I just throw their mail in the trash can on the way inside my home.

I stuff the postage paid return envelope full and send it back with a note scrawled in black marker ‘COMMIES you ruined my health care.’ Just wasting some of their money, and they keep sending the crap, and I keep sending it back. LOL
