NOTICE: My dear readers can watch the House Ways and Means Subcommittee hearing on the Medicare Advantage cuts that will result in AARP benefiting by 1 BILLION dollars over the next 10 years, at C-SPAN TV NOW!!
The WashPost article byline by Felicia Sonmez almost screams with glee that GOP vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan was BOOED by the AARP annual convention audience. WELL THIS DOESN’T SURPRISE ME. AARP may not want the spotlight on MEDICARE ADVANTAGE cuts and their likely benefits from the cuts!! Read on, Puc’ers.
And , P.S. I LOVE YOU News, seniors will NOT be able to keep the doctor of their choice. Something Americans have known all along. All the B.S. getting to you, yet?
I watched the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health’s Medicare Advantage Plan on C-SPAN today. I wish more dumb clucks would watch C-SPAN’s Congressional Hearings so THEY CAN HEAR IT FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH and not filtered according to biased, prejudiced, and ethically-challanged journalists, reporters and commentators! It’s kind of C.O.M.P.L.I.C.A.T.E.D. stuff for the uninformed, uninterested and the non-fealty among my fellow Americans, so I’m going to leave a link for you to HEAR IT FOR YOURSELF.
On the C-SPAN video page, you can watch the entire hearing by video, or just the testimony regarding AARP’s involvement presented by Mr. James C. Capretta, Fellow at Ethics and Public Policy Center. Below the video, scan through the individual clips until you get to Time: 00:55:55, 1 min., Unidentified Speaker, and click on that section to hear just the audio about AARP’s involvement. As you may remember, AARP was involved in negotiating the Obama’s healthcare plan. Whoops!
People already insured under Medicare Advantage will soon have to return to MediGap providers, one of which is AARP Medicare Supplemental Insurance. AARP will benefit by 1 BILLION dollars over the next 10 years. Why? Because AARP gets a percentage fee for every member who enrolls in MediGap. I know, you’re surprised, right? AARP is a tax-free organization and will not be taxed one dollar on that billion. Come to think of it, AARP can then edge-out other MediGap plans using their BILLIONS and governmental favor. Eventually, Americans will be forced to turn to AARP, who by that time, will be inundated with government and political personnel. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
