Skip to comments.AARP's ObamaCare Endgame Revealed
Posted on 05/24/2011 11:15:48 AM PDT by Snuph
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 correct term is FASCISM
how much did they spend promoting ObamaCare just by themselves?
The AARP has to be one of the more vile interest groups.
Classic Fascism in Action.
Buying Democrats pays REALLY WELL, doesn’t it!!
Remember folks, it’s not CRONY CAPITALISM when Democrats do it!!! Just ask anyone in a New York MSM newsroom!
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
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.
the incredible graft in this administration is making me ill. It is beyond belief.
It is no more vile than any other group that supports Rats over what is good for America.
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
alternative to AARP??
