AARP STANDS BY AS OBAMA GETS MUGGED BY REALITY

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the perfidy of AARP. Having betrayed its members by supporting the President and the Democrats on ObamaCare, it is pretending to be nonpartisan again now that Obama looks like he’s in trouble with the voters: During last week’s presidential debate, realizing that he was taking a beating on the [...]

AARP HEADS FOR THE TALL GRASS AFTER OBAMA FALLS ON HIS FACE IN DEBATE

Remember how AARP provided cover for the President when he foisted ObamaCare on an unwilling electorate? As I explained in this column for the American Spectator, they were in it for the money. But when the President fell on his face in last night’s debate, after invoking AARP’s name, the quislings who run this insurance [...]

PRESIDENT OBAMA’S AARP SPEECH BROKE MY BS DETECTOR

In today’s American Spectator I lament my decision to leave my patented BS Detector on during the President’s speech to last week’s AARP convention. His whoppers about ObamaCare and the Romney-Ryan Medicare plan came so fast and furious that they fried the machine’s circuits: I probably should have turned it off after observing its reaction [...]

AARP IS AT IT AGAIN

Last year, AARP backed ObamaCare knowing full well that millions of seniors would suffer. Why? To protect its profits. Now, the AARP lobby is inserting itself into the Washington debt ceiling debate: The AARP, formerly the The American Association of Retired Persons, sent U.S. senators a letter last week asking them to oppose any increases in Medicare [...]

AARP GETS ANOTHER PERK FROM OBAMACARE

We all know that AARP supported ObamaCare because of the Democrat plan to herd millions of seniors off their popular Medicare Advantage plans back to traditional Medicare—-which will require the purchase of Medigap plans from which AARP derives 70% of its income. Well, that wasn’t the only payoff the AARP got for betraying its members. [...]

VIDEO: AARP HEARING OPENED BY REP. CHARLES BOUSTANY, MD

Dr. Boustany is the new Chairman of the Ways & Means Oversight Subcommittee and he opened today’s hearing with a useful summary of  why Americans, particularly seniors, should be concerned about the activities and motives of AARP:   AARP has morphed into an insurance and advertising powerhouse. According to the most recent data we have, AARP, Inc. and its for-profit [...]

AARP WILL RAKE IN $1 BILLION FOR PIMPING OBAMACARE

As I wrote in today’s column for the American Spectator, AARP’s endorsement of ObamaCare was all about the Benjamins. But unlike Judas, whose perfidy came at the cut rate price of 30 pieces of silver, AARP will scoop up a cool billion dollars for betraying its members: Based on … estimates of declines in Medicare Advantage [...]

THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR RETIREE PLUNDER

My latest column for the American Spectator discusses the betrayal of seniors by the AARP and the upcoming congressional hearing to which its principals have been summoned: The unholy alliance between AARP and the Democrats on ObamaCare has not been lost on the new Republican majority in the House. Two members of the Ways and Means [...]

AARP SHIFTS HEALTH COSTS TO EMPLOYEES, LIES ABOUT REASON FOR OCARE SUPPORT

The people who run AARP, like their fellow quislings at the AMA, decided early in the health reform battle to betray its members. Now the organization’s employees get to foot the bill by paying 8 to 13 percent more next year on health insurance premiums. They use “medical inflation” as a fig leaf, but the obvious reason for the increase is ObamaCare: [...]

HEALTH REFORM: WHO GOT PAID OFF?

Tomorrow, the Senate will vote to open debate on its version of Obamacare, so it’s worth reviewing the huge amount of taxpayer funded bribery that has enabled this farce to continue. The American Medical Association, as I discuss here, will receive a bribe exceeding $200 billion. Not a bad take for a group that represents less [...]
