AARP officials walk out of meeting, refuse questions concerning ObamaCare from angry seniors???



Watch this must-see video! AARP supports government controlled health care!

August 7, 2009
Senior citizens who went to a meeting sponsored by AARP were left to themselves after the AARP hostess walked out. The seniors were trying to get answers concerning ObamaCare and why AARP would support a government controlled health system that many believe would lead to euthanasia and rationing of health care. Watch the video.

Why would AARP, the nation's largest seniors group, supposedly working for the elderly, support an ObamaCare bill? Here is what Dick Morris, former advisor to President Clinton, said: "The interest groups that usually speak up for the elderly, particularly AARP, are in Obama's pocket, hoping to profit from his program by becoming one of its vendors. Just as they backed Bush's prescription drug plan because they anticipated profiting from it, so they are now helping Obama gut the medical care of

    Like the National Education Association, AARP has been taken over by liberals. With millions of members, AARP is using its clout to push ObamaCare on the elderly, even if it includes euthanasia

  • I recently took an ethics class where we discussed euthanasia and elderly, disabled, and terminally ill patients... A lot of people are actually for it...

    Euthanasia for people isn't like euthanasia for pets. The patient will give informed consent to euthanasia before it is performed. No one else is going to decide, "Hey, this person is miserable and needs to die." It is completely up to the patient themselves. Unless the patient is elderly enough that one of their kids has power of attorney and decides they are tired of taking care of their parent... then that's a different story and would be a very sad one.

    Long story short, euthanasia could be better for quality of life for elderly, disabled, and terminally ill patients who don't have the ability to kill themselves if they want to. If they would rather die than suffer, why not let them make that choice? This can all tie in to the abortion debate as well. It's a choice.

  • This isn't about assisted suicide: that was a room full of seniors who wanted to keep their health care, they were afraid of it being rationed because they want to live as healthy as they can.

  • pearls of wisdom before ignorant swine, Anonymous. nice try though, and well put. I've always wondered why it's ok to show such mercy for dumb animals who are unable to communicate whether they still find life worth living or are in so much pain they'd rather go, and yet we won't do the same for people who can tell you when.

  • I'm a senior citizen and I have Medicare which IS a Government program, and it is really quite good. I am happy with it. I also am not going to lose any sleep over the proposed health care plan that the current administration is working on.
