Sure. The AARP “endorses” Obamacare.


Through the magic of the Internet and You Tube videos we can all see our elected officials in action, especially at the Town Hall meetings on health care being held across this nation. As confirmed above we all heard President Obama state that the AARP has endorsed his plan. While they do support the concept we have also heard representatives of AARP deny any endorsement as of this date. However, don’t be so sure that AARP is not licking their chops.
 
 Whatever the number, somewhere up to 50 million people in this country allegedly lack health care coverage. AARP is heavily engaged in the insurance business.  In addition to health insurance they offer long term care, major medical and supplemental options, dental insurance and medical supply coverage for individuals age 50 and above. Don’t think for a minute that they aren’t anxious to capture some of that vast uninsured group! From their web site is the following bio data:

AARP operates as a non-profit advocate for its members and as one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the United States, and it also sells insurance, investment funds and other financial products. AARP claims over 35 million members, making it one of the largest membership organizations for people age 50 and over in the United States.
