AMAC vs. AARP – Battling for the Hearts and Minds of Seniors

fightsIf you haven’t chosen AMAC over AARP yet, here’s why you should.

During the first debate, President Obama touted the support of AARP for ObamaCare several times, clearly tying them together.

Further proof that they were working in concert can be found in recently released emails between the White House and AARP operatives. As the emails show, AARP threw their tremendous power behind the legislation despite the fact they were getting calls overwhelmingly against it.

In fact, on September 20, 2012, Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal wrote:

“Thanks to just-released emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that AARP worked through 2009-2010 as an extension of a Democratic White House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know that despite AARP’s awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill, the ‘nonpartisan organization’ chose to serve the president’s agenda.
The 71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House, scripting the president’s talking points, working to keep its board ‘in line’ and pledging a fealty to ‘the cause.’ Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election.”

AARP refuses to take a formal position on the Independent Payment Advisory Board (“rationing board”) portion of ObamaCare and even defends some aspects of the board. Given the negative impact that the IPAB will have on seniors, this is unbelievable (but sadly, not unexpected).

AMAC is against the harsh provisions in ObamaCare that gives the Federal government complete control of our healthcare. It destroys the best healthcare system in the world, takes 716 billion dollars out of Medicare, and has the power to restrict and ration our medical treatment.

AMAC is fighting to keep our right to receive treatment from our doctors without the interference of Federal bureaucrats.

Big government experiments like the “stimulus” and ObamaCare have only increased the uncertainty and instability, and are core reasons for the persistently high unemployment rate and why the household incomes of Mature Americans have declined so much.

AMAC, The Association of Mature American Citizens, believes we can do much better. As a steadily growing alternative to groups like AARP, and with an expanding influence in the Nation’s capital, we aim to champion the interests of Mature Americans, seniors, and prospective retirees. We believe in religious freedom, free enterprise, and support common sense solutions to our Nation’s largest challenges.

Bottom line – Our livelihoods, our families’ future prosperity and our standards of living should not be threatened by bad policies emanating from Washington, DC.

AMAC Fights for You!

AMAC, the leading Conservative Alternative to AARP
Dan Weber, President and Founder of AMAC, delivers remarks with the House GOP Doctors Caucus the day the Supreme Court decided to uphold ObamaCare. Standing with Dan are (from left to right) Representatives, Paul Broun (GA-10th), John Fleming (LA-4th), Phil Gingrey GA-11th), Joe Heck (NV-3rd), Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25th), and Tim Murphy (PA-18th).

As AMAC continues to grow and build a presence in DC, we’re able to stand up to the tremendous lobbying power of AARP on behalf of concerned conservative Americans like you.

A senator told us, “You have got to grow AMAC!” When we asked him why, he said, “You don’t understand, when AARP comes to our committees they say they represent older Americans. We know at times they really don’t, but because of their numbers we have got to listen to them. When AMAC has one million members we can tell them they are not the only one we will listen to.”

AMAC can do something AARP will not do – we’ll fight against the horror of big government “solutions” like Obamacare with common sense solutions. Now, more than ever, we need your help!

If you want to belong to an organization that will speak out for the conservative values you believe in,

For a limited time, a 5-year membership is available for less than $1 a month, and you’ll have access to exclusive AMAC benefits – such as the members-only auto and home insurance program, the AMAC Roadside Assistance Program, travel, and much more!

Just received your information in our mail. We have never belonged to AARP because we picked up years ago they are not for the best interest of seniors. You hopefully will not go down the same path. However, giving away trinkets for joining is not a very good idea. Use the money spent on the trinkets fighting for our country and sustaining our rights. You’d be surprised how quickly it will mount up. Be different than AARP! Let us join because we believe in what you say you are doing! We plan to join and will give you a chance. Don’t prove us wrong!

I agree with Don, the comments below, both for and against AMAC are over a year old and completely irrelevant to the discussion of the merits of AMAC vs AARP today. AMAC has demonstrated it’s ability to provide seniors with outstanding products and services competitively priced with AARP services, while representing the conservative causes and viewpoints of most seniors. Hopefully all future posted comments will be based on the advantages or disadvantages of the products and services of the two organizations rather than political bickering which serves no purpose other than to inflame the passions of commenters and draw out “trolls” who thrive on and encourage animosity. Seniors face tough obstacles and we should be working on them together, we shouldn’t divide ourselves into camps and fight against one another.

I agree with about AARP, but Amac is in bed with ranking Republicans in DC and most states especially Texas and Florida who are nothing more thanpawns of BIG business. Conservative huge corporations that are recipients of favors from Amac supported mega rich people who could care less about seniors or the near poverty levels most Americans currently try to survive. Like their Amac supported Conservative Republican friends reducing the funding of Medicare that helps with the funding of wars that use volumes of products the rich military conservative corporations (G. Bush and Cheney close friends) that are majority owned by ultra rich Republicans. I am sick that 1% of rich Conservatives own 95% of our nation’s wealth. They refuse to pay their fair share, ship good paying jobs overseas, buying elected officials, funding groups that attempt to disallow low income Americans to share in the nation’s wealth that used… Read more »

AARP support of Obamacare is enough reason to cancel my AARP membership. Obamacare is turning into a monster with cancellation of thousands of current individual policies, disruption of many group plans deemed “Cadillac” plans by Obamacare, and a website that is atrocious. The unions complained, so they are now exempt. Millions of American citizens complain, and they are ignored. As citizens of this great country, we should be able to make our own decisions and own choices about what kind of health plan to get. Obamacare needs to be replaced by another “better way” initiative to help those unable to buy health insurance without imposing fees, policy change, policy cancellations, and more on the vast majority of U.S. citizens that have chosen their own form of health care coverage.

Obama made claims he would not increase entitlements but all the subsidies of Obamacare are entitlements.
US citizens, very very few illegals, pay into Social Security and Medicare.
Social Security and Medicare ARE NOT entitlements since their direct funding comes from F.I.C.A. payments.
Obamacare subsidies are not from direct payments by the users nor is Medicaid, Food Stamps, S.S.I., Section 8 housing and other WELFARE entitlements.

Obama is a fraud and the most stupidest and racist president ever in the USA.

If what you say is true, so what! We don’t need either one. Social Security is a ponzi scheme. Its neither social nor secure. Medicare is a waste of tax payer dollars; its not the government’s job to try & find me a good deal for medical care. I shop for my deals.
Talk about following the money? Who benefits most from Obamacare & the Pork-u-lous bill a.k.a. the Stimilus bill? AARP! Of course, they are for it. They stand to make BILLIONS for this giant turd. Now who’s foolish & didn’t do his background check?

Why all the venom directed against AMAC? I mean if all they are is gnat of an organization then why worry about it? The libs have either the shortest memory ever or they are deniers of the truth. Do any of you even remember when BO ripped 16 billion from Medicare and then do you remember when the AARP snooze paper came out in a panic and ask us all to write our congress person because Medicare was going broke! Major DUH moment here.

I can’t fathom AARP motivation unless they just wanted to sell us more insurance we will all need if this turd is not defunded.

Never ceases to amaze me how so many people can be convinced to rally against their own best interests. I love my children and Obamacare is the greatest hope for their future, I am a Teamster with great benefits but I am the last of a dying breed until Unions can be revived. To all the haters out there, copy this post for the future, Obama will be recognized as one of our greatest Presidents, Obamacare will eventually morph into a type of single-payer plan, the GOP will get one more election cycle in power before the Democrats take both Houses of Congress in 2016 and you and your children will use and love Obamacare in the future… Read more »

The first time you have a family member who needs medical care urgently but cannot get it because care is rationed, you will finally understand why obamacare is not the answer. Governement cannot sustain the financial burden which is why care will be rationed. Unfortunatly for the blind who cannot rationlize reality it will be to late. I fear for the elderly who are no longer working. Their medical care will be reduced to nothing because a panel is making the decision for them to receive medical treatment not a Doctor.

Even the IRS workers now don’t want any part of this health plan! Get real! Obamacare is already bankrupting this country and will continue to do so if it is allowed to continue. The 40 hour and 32 hour work week is dead or dying…So employers can avoid paying for health insurance under Obamacare…If you are lucky enough to get a part-time job, you may be fired before your ‘training period’ ends so employer does not have to pay benefits…This is already happening in my state since passage of Obamacare.

At the risk of sounding like one of the “Obamabots” you describe, why does this article say our healthcare system is the best in the world? The people who wrote this, the people who have a problem with Obamacare, and right wing conservatives don’t seem to understand how the world works. The system has been broken, the system still is broken, and Obamacare is also broken – but at least they’re trying to do something new. For someone who makes minimum wage today, you have to spend ~20 hours working to see a GP for 15 minutes. If that is a system that “works,” then I don’t think I understand the basis of that system. That is a result of a combination of greed and inefficiency, and, incidentally, it happens to stack the system against both minotities (who tend to be poor for a number of reasons), and a growing… Read more »

Odd you should mention the military Cheryl, because they’ve had government run healthcare for over 100 years. Works pretty well too, by all accounts. And all those members of Congress? Do you think they’d ever even think of giving up their taxpayer paid platinum-plated healthcare? Not a chance. The Republican members just don’t want you to have anything remotely similar to it. Our healthcare system is in shambles. A sudden healthcare issue is the leading cause of bankruptcy in this country. And close to one million Americans declare bankruptcy every year because of it. If that’s what you call one of the best healthcare systems in the world, then you are sadly deluded.

I also wonder just why you and others are so against another senior’s group being involved and only considering it as being a “hate” group or an “Republican” group?? Is there not room for more than one Organization to be representative of “Seniors” or are you people more interested in an totalitarian state where one one voice can speak?

The greed in that group’s leadership is to line their pockets with profits by being what the left says they are against. Corporate capitalism. We who refuse to accept this arrangement, oppose it collectively. That’s not right-wing hate, that’s Americans and the American way.

When I turned 50 I received my AARP packet in the mail and joined. It didn’t take me long to see AARP as a sales organization only posing to represent seniors, so when it was time to renew I passed and properly recycled the paper. When Obama Care came into the political frame and I saw the AARP support for this legislation I knew my non-renewal was justified. So when I received my packet to rejoin AARP I took the time to cut the information provided into pieces and mailed it back to them in the envelope they provided. Gee, I hope they recycle paper too.

I am a veteran and proud of it but I am increasingly becoming ashamed of my country of what we the people have allowed to take place. I remember in 1956 Russian Premiere Kruskesf made the statement they would take over the U S with out firing a shot. Think about it folks, they are almost there and we just sit around griping.

Amen Jim. I’ve been saying the same thing. My memory is fresh enough to remember stories of what happened to some of my relatives who vanished from Poland after the second world war. My grandmother ended up up in Siberia and was never heard from again. I too am a veteran and recognize what’s going on in our government. Inch by inch, step by step we are slowly being turned into a socialist government.

Liberalism is dying? Really? Obama won the last two elections by a large number of electoral votes. The Senate is full of Liberals.

When you have 55% of women, 71% of Latinoes, 73% of Asians and 95% of blacks voting against you, you’re doomed.

Rafael, Obama received 9 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008 and Romney managed to get 1.3 million fewer votes than McCain! The margin between them in many states was less than 50,000, far smaller than the margins between Obama and McCain. For example, in 2008 Obama won New Hampshire by 10%, in 2012 he won by 4%. If both parties continue to alienate voters in those numbers…in 2016 Republicans win by a mile! As for your idea that Conservatives leaving AARP and going to AMAC is a win/win for both companies, I can promise you that AARP doesn’t think it is a win!

What does your beloved left-wing AARP have for you? They betrayed all seniors with their support of Obamacare. When Obamacare goes full force next year, seniors over 70 will not get care, only “end of life” counseling. The left has only been out for your money for years. They raise our taxes, began taxing social security payments, and now want to take our retirement accounts. Are you blind??? The right is trying to get rid of Obamacare, lower our taxes and not take over our retirement accounts. Do you not follow the news? The left-wingers are trying to take away our rights to: 1) freedom of speech, 2) freedom of religion, 3) right to bear arms, and 4) right to privacy. They are trying to take away our rights, not the right. Try thinking for yourself and quit believing everything everyone else tells you.

AMAC sounds like tha lobbyist organization for the Tea Party/Republican obstructionists. “Obamacare” would have been different and better if the Repubicans and Tea Partiers had cooperated more fully in its design. We are all paying for medical care for indigents and illegal aliens and those who just won’t pay their bills. We decided in the 70’s that hospitals and emergency rooms couldn’t ask patients for their citizenship status because those questions and their answers might delay the delivery of medical treatment. Since “Obamacare” is based on insurance coverage, the process is sped up and, in fact, it specifically forbids benefits for undocumented aliens. I think that we need to make some provision for their treatment (we wouldn’t want to crawl over their bodies at the entrances to emergency rooms) but “Obamacare” is probably not the right place for that.

My disappointment with Obamacare is that it is not single payer. We should have a system that provides decent health care to every American, not just those with enough money to buy health insurance which is increasingly becoming more and more expensive. I suspect that AMAC is in the pocket of the health insurance companies and the medical industry. Interestingly enough every nurse with whom I have spoken at my HMO is strongly in favor of single payer. And I’ll bet that the underpaid workers at Walmart who often have to get food stamps to support their meager wages and who get no health benefits would also love to have single payer. The fact that the US does not is a total disgrace.

A real conservative might have beaten Obama, if it weren’t for all the ballot-box stuffing going on in the swing states. Darn hard to beat a crook when he’s already in charge.

Jan – they don’t have to work in a low paying job at Walmart – if they have the skills to be employed elsewhere they can choose to move into a better paying job and benefits. I owe unskilled workers NOTHING!! They need to work to improve themselves through education and training to get better jobs – and not choose to get married and have a family if they can’t support them….NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY to support their poor choices. As for HMO’s – I’ve always avoided them as I would also not support a single payer system. Hope AMAC is in the pocket of conservative American’s who will jump ship from AARP who does not represent conservative views!!!

“…they don’t have to work in a low paying job at Walmart…” Right. Because everyone in this nation has the ability to afford a college degree. Or get one of a limited number of scholarships that offered to a select few students of exceptional academic achievement. “They need to work to improve themselves through education and training to get better jobs – and not choose to get married and have a family if they can’t support them…” Because being poor means you don’t deserve emotions, you don’t deserve to have a family, you’re not really a human being. “….NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY to support their poor choices.” Because they chose to be born into a poor family that didn’t have all the advantages that you clearly had, given your hatred for the poor. You are the problem in this country. Not the poor, not the minorities, not liberals. You’re greedy, selfish,… Read more »

dale, are you saying that only those with money or a scholarship can get an education? No poor person has ever worked their way through college and become successful? What a great message to pass along to those poor folks: just give up because you can’t make it on your own without a hand out from someone else. That’s how liberals keep those poor people voting for them, with promises they will make sure they are given something.

Not everyone in this country can have a high paying job and people like Onita don’t give a damn if they can’t afford the ever increasing cost of health insurance or have to decide between buying food or medicine. I can only hope that one day people like Onita will find themselves in the same prediciment as those she damns.

Amen to both of you. The insurers were supposed to be appeased by the “insurance for all” requirement; young, healthier people must buy insurance so the industry won’t have anything but older and sicker customers. And those “immortals” who also ride motorcycles helmet less and uninsured are treated in ERs costing everyone. Seems fair to me. AMAC appears to be funded by the same people who have fought the concept from its inception. Must be real reforms in the law for the insurance industry for them to keep pouring more money into a lost cause. Conservatives have their’s and everyone else, be damned – despite being good, generous people who would rather volunteer at a food bank than offer food stamps or health care opportunities to folks needier than they.

I think that Obamacare initially was formulated around a single payer system but it grew to be much more intrusive when the politicians got a hold of it. I haven’t studied much about it but I would certainly be willing to listen to a single payer system. I haven’t read the 9,000 pages of new medical codes but this was reported by AMAC’s president, Dan Weber, ““No kidding,” Weber said. “Senator Rand Paul, an MD, himself, pored through the 9,000 pages of new regulations and 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes in the Affordable Care Act and reported that in addition to the Macaw codes, there are two new codes for turtle accidents and two more for injuries suffered as the result of walking into a lamppost. It’s slapstick comedy worthy of the Keystone Kops.””, read the whole article at http://amac.us/amac-obamacare-is-slapstick-comedy-worthy-of-the-keystone-kops . Now that a total disgrace!

Jeff, I must agree with you. My AARP sub. will never be renewed. As opposed to what Paul says, I am a white, diabetic, raised on a mill hill. Worked my way through college. Took 10 years to repay loans, No freebies for li’l ol’ white ladies. I raised 2 girls with no assistance from their father or the government. We all three worked to put them through college. They are still repaying their loans. So PAUL, you don’t have to be prosperous or resentful of inferiors. However, I am resentful that I don’t have an i-phone and the woman in the checkout line with the “card” and her free phone goes out to get in a nicer vehicle than I have and her free groceries contain things I can’t afford. . I have also worked continuously since I was 16 years old. So please explain this to me, Jeff.

Romneycare (remember where Obamacare came from) does not take control of our health care any more than the current system where private insurers decide what we can or can’t do. Romneycare simply requires everyone to buy insurance and insurers to insure everybody. $716 billion from medicare will be made up by cracking down on fraud. No wonder Republican cheaters are mad!

Of course, the slave didn’t get the right to vote for many years later, but the political statement was being made back in the 30’s when this film was made. The statement holds true today.

If there is anything that isn’t Obama’s fault it is the deficit and the poor economy. W’s last broken promise was to cut the DEFICIT (not the national debt) in half.

The deregulation of the mortgage and financial industries dates back to the 90s or before and both parties share blame. By the time Obama joined the Senate in 2005 the housing bubble had already occurred and there was little or nothing anybody could do to stop the crash. So how can anyone say that Obama is at fault when the policies that brought the economy to its knees were in place and had done their damage BEFORE OBAMA JOINED THE SENATE nevermind occupying the whitehouse.

Now I’m paying more and the HMO has me seeing a nurse-Practioner, I can only see my MD if things are really bad. It’s not about healthcare and providing coverage, it’s all about making certain well-connected individuals rich, and growing government. But then everything Obama has done has been about crony capitalism and growing government. No one seems to notice that BHO started in 2005 with no real money, after 2 years in the Senate he was worth over $2million.(12/2007). Four years later (12/2011), he’s worth over $11million.

Bottom line what we really need is lower cost medical care, lower priced pharmaceutical pricing and lower cost insurance pricing, that’s really what needs to done with our system, good down to earth pricing, taking all GREED out of the system, and just good down to earth caring about one another. So whether it be Health Care Reform Act, AARP, your group or a Doctor, Nurse, CEO… Humans should not be bilked to receive and retain the ‘gift’ of LIFE? Let’s get real folks….it shouldn’t be a profit GAME… It should be the game of LIFE and LIVING…. Behind every institution are people, let’s ask for respect of the ‘human race’ and demand realistic pricing!!!

The biggest problem I h ave is that $60 for 5 years only would pay for one membership: mine since I am a widow and live solely on social security. There is no allowance for subscriptions. AARP expires next year but it was paid for before my spouse died. I cannot afford to join AMAC as much as I’d prefer it.

Carol, if you would really care to join AMAC, I will pay for your subscription. I am not sure how to do this, but if we can figure it out, I will pay it for you.

When you look/search for answers, don’t look under Obama Care. It’s not “obama care” It’s health care

California just reported their premiums for ACA exchanges there and the costs are WAY lower than you can get from outside the program.

The AARP supported the Bush administration’s implementation of a drug plan for seniors; no big conservative uproar then.

And why is it that so many conservatives have to resort to name-calling to make a point?

I believe that the Drug plans being sold are private and not government plans.

Kevin, don’t know if you’re a liberal or not (from your post I’m assuming you are). We conservatives were in a big uproar when Bush went after the drug plan. The problem was your liberal media did not want to cover it and wanted to portray that we were for it – WE WERE NOT!!! While I respect Bush for his foreign policies and his genuine love of country (unlike BO), I did not like his domestic spending policies.

Actually Kevin, there was a large uproar from conservatives, myself included. I love President Bush but I disagreed with his domestic spending on social programs. Still, he was a man of honor and high moral character. Unfortunately, all we have in the Whitehouse now is a character!
