ATLANTA— “Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Cameron Jones is to be commended for tearing up his American Association of American Retired Persons (AARP)membership card on a national cable television show this morning because of what he terms that group’s support of President Barack Obama’s costly and socialist healthcare proposal,” says Stuart Barton, president of the American Seniors Association (ASA) representing hundreds of thousands of members nationwide.

“The AARP has sold out to the White House in an apparent deal so they can sell insurance and reap profits under Obamacare plan,” Barton says.

The ASA has major concerns over the proposed House legislation: 1) a government-run plan would limit patient-doctor choice, 2) there would be an employer mandate that would kill jobs and lower wages and 3) the current legislation costing over $1.2 trillion attacks baby boomers and seniors by cutting $500 billion out of Medicare over the next 10 years.

“A section of the House bill (page 425) even mandates that seniors meet with a government bureaucrat every five years to basically prepare them how to die,” Barton says. “This is outrageous. Americans should meet with their doctors regarding their medical needs and concerns— not government officials who aim to ration healthcare.”

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
