AARP ramps up support for ObamaCare with TV/Radio ads
August 24, 2009
Although the AARP says it is not "officially" endorsing President Obama's healthcare reform, it is conducting a huge and costly television ad campaign in support of ObamaCare and hosted the president at an online forum recently to promote his agenda to AARP members.
On its website, AARP says, "We share the President's commitment to act this year…" and "We look forward to working with leaders of both parties, including the President…"
AARP even developed a dedicated website to help promote the president's agenda. See this national television ad by AARP using scare tactics to promote ObamaCare. (This clip requires the new Adobe Flash Player). The website states specifically states, "AARP members will visit their representatives and senators in their district offices and attend events in support of health care reform."
FOX News network reported about 60,000 seniors have quit AARP since July 1 due to the group's support for health care reform.
• Send an e-mail to AARP letting them know you don't agree. If you are a member, consider what others are doing - cancel your membership. AARP is clearly using membership dues to help push ObamaCare.
• Forward this information to others so they can see how AARP is spending their dues in promoting ObamaCare.
• American Seniors Association (ASA) is an alternative we suggest you check out. AFA does not officially endorse ASA, but simply offers it as a conservative alternative to AARP. By the way, ASA is offering any senior that sends in a torn AARP card a special deal that provides them with a two-year membership for the price of one year.
