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 Obamas 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 todays 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 dont have to take my word for it, Ryan said. Ask the chief actuary for the center for Medicare and Medicaid services.

I certainly hope no FReeper is a member of the socialist AARP
The only viable choice:
And here’s their website for those of you retirees out there:
Greed Geezers Scream:
“Screw Our Grandkids! We Want It All, And We Want It Now!”
AARP = a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party
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.
That’s what happens when you say the truth to the 47%.
AARP is not the friend of fiscal conservatives, and is no advocate for “retired persons”, as they claim.
They are an insurance scheme, looking for artificial sustenance from Federal sources.
Every time they send you something, you can wrap the envelope around a brick or a rock, or something else heavy, and write “Return To Sender” on it, and send it back.
They get to pay the return postage...
That was a golden opportunity to educate them. Hope he did.
I just thrown their stuff in the garbage can.
I am 61 and long ago told the commies at AARP to keep their shit out of my mailbox.
Just wait until those AARP’ers hear about the death panel, IPAP. How can people be so NAIVE!
From some of the Polling charts I have seen, it looks to me like it will be the "silver haired voters" that will put Romney over the top.
They are “Old Skulls Full of Mush.”
And just wait for the old people on FR to blast you.
It is very funny in a way. Everyone is for a balanced budget, until it is their turn to go off the dole.
well I never joined but they mailed me the application when I turned 50. I sent it back in their postage paid envelop saying I wouldn’t join. I got another a couple months later and did same. When I got their third I wrote on it that I can send these back at their expense as many times as they send them. Haven’t rec’d one since - approaching 8 years now.
I watched Ryan’s entire speech. He was outstanding.
Amen to that.
Actually, I called their customer service # and asked very politely to be removed. They wanted the numbers on the mailing label and did so. I haven't gotten a single piece of their garbage since that time.
