Society • AARP Pants On Fire—Again!-How They Profit on Healthkill Plan
AARP, the ultra-liberal senior citizen’s organization denied backing Obama’s Healthkill Plan at televised Town Hall meetings. See my story on this website regarding their lies. Turns out there is even MORE to this story of betrayal.
According to press reports, and a story in The Washington Post written by reform advocate and insurance salesman, Dan Eggen. the nation’s preeminent seniors group, AARP, has put the weight of its 40 million members behind health-care reform (remember they have publicly stated that they absolutely did NOT back the plan) saying many of the proposals will lower costs and increase the quality of care for older Americans. Again, this group is now solidly endorsing the plan they have publicly denied backing.
But NOT disclosed in this lobbying campaign is the groups’s substantial earnings from insurance royalties and the potential benefits that could come its way from many of the reform proposals. The group and it’s subsidiaries collected more than $650 million in royalties and other fees last year from the sale of insurance policies, credit cards and other products that carry the AARP name (vitamins etc.), accounting for the majority of it’s $1.14 billion in revenue, according to federal tax records. It does not directly sell insurance policies—even though they strongly “recommend” them through their newsletters and AARP Magazine, lending its name to insurance plans in exchange for a tax-exempt cut of the premiums.
And this money, from the backs of the elderly is what finances a huge part of the goal of the Democrat Socialists to bring The United States of America under Marxist rule. Even the liberal members of AARP had better think this over since their own lives will be totally altered. This writer knows first hand what life is like under Communist rule, having been behind the Iron Curtain, in Cuba just before the Communist takeover and in Rome during a Communist uprising where cars were burned among other things.
Democrats, you had better think carefully about what you are trying to do and re-think your membership (this writer canceled membership). You too will suffer if this overthrow is successful. AARP is not there to help seniors but to finance these political goals which would cause total destruction of our country.
