Obama Healthcare Plan Causing AARP to Lose Members by the Thousands!

AARP loses members over health care stance
8/18/2009
strong> About 60,000 senior citizens have quit AARP since July 1 due to the group’s support for a health care overhaul, a spokesman for the organization said Monday.

The membership loss suggests dissatisfaction on the part of AARP members at a time when many senior citizens are concerned about proposed cuts to Medicare providers to help pay for making health care available for all. (It is a good indication that many more Seniors will jump ship in the future because of AARP promoting Obamacare)

AARP is strongly backing a health care overhaul, running ads to support it and hosting President Obama at an online forum recently to promote his agenda to AARP members. However, the group has not endorsed a specific bill and says it won’t support a plan that reduces Medicare benefits. (It does not need to, AARP gave campaign donations to Barack Hussein Obama, they shill for his programs, they are as liberal as they could be)

DOCTOR SHORTAGE: Fewer perks for primary care MDs (We have a doctor shortage now, what will this do to the system, what they forget to mention is fewer services for tghe Seniors.)

THE OVAL: Obama still prefers public option, White House says (this is one of the main reasons his plan is bad news for the country, creeping toward socialistic healthcare) (Another area that must be considered is the promise Barack Hussein Obama made in his campaign; he basically said that his health plan would cover abortion cost)

“We take stands on issues that are contentious, it’s part of what we do,” Nannis said. “And because we have so many members we’ll always have a small percentage that disagree with us so strongly they feel they need to cancel membership.” (I did)

The approximately 60,000 number represents members who specifically cited AARP’s stance on the health overhaul debate in canceling their membership between July 1 and mid-August, Nannis said. (I am no longer a member of this ultra-liberal organization)

He said AARP gained some 400,000 new members during the same period and that 1.5 million members renewed their membership.
