RetireSafe Blasts AARP for Supporting Plan to Pay for Health Care on the Backs of Seniors
Date:7/28/2009

Seniors Group Calls AARP's Support of Obama's Rationing-by-Bureaucrat Proposal an Outrage to Older Americans

WASHINGTON, July 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the 400,000 strong senior-citizen group RetireSafe blasted AARP for endorsing the plan presented by President Obama and his Congressional allies that propose to cut $600 billion or more from Medicare to pay for "health care reform." Thair Phillips, the new president of RetireSafe, said AARP had sold out America's seniors.

Said Phillips, "I'm outraged that AARP has sold out seniors in favor of a plan that will bring in socialized medicine. I don't think America's seniors realize what adopting this health care reform could mean to them, and AARP is doing a great job of keeping it from them. As AARP is one of the biggest insurance hawkers in the U.S., we wonder what's in it for them?"

The AARP-backed health care reform being discussed today in the tele-town hall meeting, would ration people's care and hurt seniors the most. The very ones which have paid into the system don't deserve to have their care cut. The effect of the health care plan on seniors would reduce their ability to obtain specialty care in areas such as orthopedics and cardiac care; threaten their home health care; cut diagnostics and research and innovation. The proposed public portion of the plan undercuts private plan options in Medicare, and will deny seniors their valued doctor-patient relationship.

"This will be one of the biggest boondoggles in the history of man."

So says a RetireSafe supporter in response to our recent survey on the health care provisions in the proposed plan. This supporter's comment represents the concerns of many seniors across America.

Phillips pointed out that 40 million plus older Americans will be forced to foot the bill for this ambitious reform scheme. He said, "Many of these same older Americans have paid Medicare taxes for their entire working lives. And now they will be cheated out of the benefits they've earned."

On behalf of the 400,000 senior-citizen supporters that RetireSafe represents, Phillips promised to spread the word to every Medicare beneficiary.

RetireSafe is a grassroots organization with a mission to preserve, protect and enhance the options and benefits of seniors and near-seniors.
