Paul Ryan Booed By AARP Crowd For Promising To Repeal ‘Obamacare’
Mediaite ^ | 9/21/2012 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 09/21/2012 10:17:40 AM PDT by markomalley

Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)was not well received at a gathering held by the American Association of Retired Peoples on Friday. After Ryan said the first step to strengthening Medicare is to repeal President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, the crowd erupted into boos.

After promising to repeal “Obamacare,” the crowd jeered. “I had a feeling there would be mixed reactions,” said Ryan amid the chorus of booing.

“It weakens Medicare for today’s seniors and puts it at risk for the next generation,” said Ryan to more booing.

“You may not have heard this side of the story,” said Ryan, after detailing the Medicare funds stripped in order to fund the ACA. “The law turned Medicare into a piggybank for Obamacare.”

“You don’t have to take my word for it,” Ryan said. “Ask the chief actuary for the center for Medicare and Medicaid services.”

“They are an insurance scheme, looking for artificial sustenance from Federal sources.”

Obamacare wii eventually put private health insurers out of business, so how could that possibly be good for AARP?

AARP does not sell just health insurance. That is a short-term business model for them, as they expand into various life insurance schemes, or long-term nursing home insurance, or even into auto and home coverages.

And they don’t even directly underwrite these policies, they act as brokers for OTHER actual insurance companies. The name of the game is cash flow.

“THEY WON’T ALLOW YOU TO QUIT. No matter how many times you tell them to STOP mailing you stuff. They will never, ever remove your name. “

It has nothing to do with belonging, I have been trashing their crap for over 40 years and can’t stop their mailings!!!

The way to beat these organizations is to expose what they are and then starve them.

Do you remember the Kingfish character in the Amos and Andy radio series? Shifty, eyes darting left and right and up and down as he tries to sell his BS to anyone who will buy it. His face came to mind as I read your IDIOT card. Yep, we have a Kingfish/idiot in OUR White House.

Love your sign.

Speaking to AARP is like speaking to the NAA(L)CP or the SPLC or the ACLU. Why even do it?

You missed sportutegrl's post at #26 on this thread where your question is answered:

"I saw a clip on Fox. Ryan dares to speak to a hostile crowd. This is how you win converts. Jesus didn’t speak to the Saduccees and Pharisees, he went to the tax collectors and prostitutes. Preaching to the choir won’t win you any new votes."

AARP is an arm of the Communist Party USA, so no real surprise. Mostly school teachers and similar freeloaders.

The Saduccees and Pharisees were not his ‘choir.’ He said plainly that unless your righteousness EXCEEDED that of the Saduccees and Pharisees, you would not see the Kingdom of Heaven.

The muzzies had a grudge against that ambassador, because he was a homosexual. Obama knew that would happen, but still sent him over there to die. The ambassador was one of Obama’s fellow Alinskyites.

Just send the postage paid envelope back EMPTY or with a note inside for them to quit harrassing you. Make them pay for the postage.

"The day will come when the federal govt. will decide that their hip replacement is too expensive."

This is a true story. My wife and I were guardians of her aunt for about 10 years. Near the end of her life, she had a stroke. After 3 days in the hospital, the "Medicare Doctor" said she had to leave because Medicare would not pay anymore. She was unconscious!!!! We had to move her to a nursing home

“Screw Our Grandkids! We Want It All, And We Want It Now!”

IMO, most of them aren't. They're just hold-over Dems from another era and truly do not realize that the Ass Party today is wholly communist. My grandmother (may she RIP) was raised by German/Irish Democrat precinct folks. You couldn't tell her anything contrary to what she "knew." She literally thought her social security money was in a little box somewhere, and that Reagan & the evil Repubs were stealing out of it. Nevermind that she was a federal employee prior to when they actually paid into SS.... Oh, I could go on and on.
