Senior Citizens Should Unite Against Health Care Bill

The health care bill making its way through Congress is an albatross that will sink the economy and make people beholden to the government. The goal is to make everyone a slave to the government and this will be accomplished by incrementally increasing governmental involvement until there is a single payer system that everyone must be a part of. This system will cover costs by putting the elderly in hospice by using the mandatory end of life counseling to guide them in that direction. This will save money on health care and it will save money in Social Security payments.

The elderly should unite against this bill because it will mean the end of Medicare. Seniors, who enjoy pretty good coverage under Medicare, will eventually lose that coverage and be placed in the single payer system where they will be guided to an early demise by their “caring” government.

Government will also have access to bank accounts in order to extract money for payment of services. Seniors, especially those on fixed incomes, cannot afford to have government dipping into their bank accounts. Government cannot use your tax dollars wisely so you know they cannot be trusted with access to your bank accounts.

Medicare is not the greatest thing around but it is better than the health care plan being considered. With proper oversight to weed out the fraud, waste and abuse, Medicare would be a more cost efficient option.

If you are a senior citizen you need to rally against this bill before you become a casualty of the new system. If you know any seniors then tell them to oppose this bill.

Senior citizens are one of the largest and most reliable voting blocks and Democrats cannot afford to upset them so they will listen.

Seniors, it is time for you to sound off and to do so loudly.

    I understand AARP has come out in favor of this bill and I think any one who is a member should buck up and let them know how they feel about that. Same thing goes with the AMA, if I were a doctor I would not be a member. Perhaps if dues dry up then some of these organizations will remember that they are supposed to look out for their members rather than going with the flow.

    I heard some one from Congress (I believe it was Spector – but don’t hold me to that) making a comment like they did not have time to read such voluminous bills. They (Congress) split the bills up in their offices and have to make quick decisions based on what they can get through. I work two jobs and found time to read that crap – isn’t that what they are paid for? Perhaps this August sebatical would be a good time for them to catch up on their reading. GEESH

    My wife and I have recently joined AARP. Once we found out about their stance on this bill, we have left the fold rather speedily.

      Good for you! They need to know how people feel. AARP opposes privatizing Social Security saying that it is unnecessary and that SS is adequate but they offer an AARP 401k plan for retirement.

      They are a left wing radical group out to make money. I will never belong.

    They wanted me to join- I declined when they began supporting liberal causes that were inimical to senior citizen interests.
    I then knew that they were just out for the money, and the hell with everyone they claimed to want to help.

    Got this from a friend today:

    While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care Program with my sister-in-law the other day, I think we have found the solution. I am sure you have heard the ideas that if you’re a senior you need to suck it up, and give up the idea that you need any health care.

    A new hip?

    Unheard of.

    We simply can’t afford to take care of you anymore. You don’t need any medications for your high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let’s take care of the young people. After all, they will be ruling the world very soon.

    So here is the solution. When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the health care you need!! New teeth, great!! Need glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung, heart? Well, bring it on.

    And who will be paying for all of this. The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care. And, since you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any income tax.

    I really think we have a Perfect Solution!!!

    AARP is not against this, because they have cut a deal with the traitors in the WH, to where many of their own members will be offered “end of Life” options, and AARP will get out of paying out on policies they have contracted.
    For them it is about money, nothing more, and that is sad.
