The Janesville genius got a rough reception from the AARP folks when he tried to sell them a load of nonsense (see HERE.)
This is why I throw out my AARP Magazine and stopped my membership. If people would actually take the time to research Obamacare they’d be marching on Washington, especially those close age for, or on Medicare. Look up what “comfort care” means. You won’t be happy. Right now if you can get to a hospital within a few hours of having a stroke, the odds are good they can reverse all damage. Under Obamacare, if you’re 70 years or older, a board of advisers (none doctors) must convene to determine if you can have that care. So you have a stroke at midnight, your spouse rushes you to a hospital, do you think the “board” will rush up to the hospital to determine if you’re worth the extra treatment to save you from the effects of a stroke? If you do my friend, you have greater faith in the government and mankind than I do. Just remember, until that board convenes, all the doctors are allowed to do is “comfort care.” Don’t worry, you’re still safe until 2014. Oh, and In case you didn’t get the memo from Blue Cross, Your medicare premiums will be increasing substantially over the next few years. There’s much more but I’m running out of room. Just ask your doctor for the truth. Seniors – we’ve been sold out. Paul Ryan wasn’t lying.

My 73 year old mother has had to change doctors already because of Obama’s changes to Medicare, and she will have to change again next year when those changes kick in. Obama has already changed Medicare, but this author is either too stupid to understand that or he worship at Obama’s feet.
What changes forced your mother to change doctors, and what changes will force her to change again?
The reimbursement rates were lowered for one. For another, they stopped approving the only medication that has worked for her blood pressure, so she has to pay for it herself. Her Medicare Advantage plan is being discontinued by Obamacare, so that will make her find another doctor that takes the now even lower reimbursements for Medicare alone. Yep, she can keep her doctor is she wants, but only if she can pay cash, because Obama won’t cover it anymore. How’s that for no hope and a terrible change.
“The 71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House, scripting the president’s talking points, working to keep its board “in line,” and pledging fealty to “the cause.” Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election.”
Aww. Poor Cunningham. I guess he completely forgot that the CBO has MORE THAN TRIPLED the projected cost of Obamacare, and it’s not even fully implemented. Cunningham, pick one of those countries that you think have the best healthcare system outside of the U.S. and I will pay for you and your family to move there.
With Obamacare only the rich will have medical care. The rest will have insurance and no Doctors.
Did you miss your meds again today, Wilson?
