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

AMAC vs AARP - AMAC Fights For You

If you haven’t chosen AMAC over AARP yet, you may want to reconsider.

During the first Presidential debate, President Obama touted the support of AARP for ObamaCare several times.  While AARP immediately responded by saying, “AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party”, recently released emails between the White House and AARP operatives seem to indicate that AARP threw their tremendous lobbying 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 vs AARP - Dan Weber Petition

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. But now, more than ever, AMAC needs your help!

If you want to belong to an organization that takes its marching orders from its members and speaks out for conservative values, JOIN AMAC!

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, access to licensed Medicare counselors, the AMAC Roadside Assistance Program, travel, and much more!

How can we 50+ Americans get the word out that AMAC is the conservative alternative to AARP, who frequently supports abortion, capital punishment, “environmental” issues at the cost of jobs and illegal immigration? My Catholic, extremely conservative mother-in-law was signed up for AARP by her uninformed adult daughter for simplicity sake. I know that she would not like her money going towards values she abhors.

Dig up some funds and start advertising! aarp is spreading their propaganda and deception duping seniors into cutting their own throats on healthcare issues.

What can I do since my hubby’s retirement plan calls for my using AARP for my supplement. United healthcare. Seems expensive, but I think we have to stay with them.

Thank you to AMAC for representing the conservative voice of older Americans!! The government’s total control of healthcare in Obamacare was unmistakably dangerous to those of us no longer seen as “contributing to society.” One need only look at the healthcare denied to elders in countries where programs, similar to the Affordable Care Act, “ration” health benefits. AMAC represent free enterprise and therefore the competition essential to keeping cost down and care available to all. AMAC represents my voice while providing top-quality services and discounts that enrich the lives of seniors!

I hear of the benefits of being a member so far as discounts on car rentals hotels and roadside assistance. I would like to know if the benefits are equal to AARP and by example give specifics please. I love the fact that there is a conservative alternative.

AARP – AMAC…, same animal just different configuration of stripes. It’s ALL about the money! I was a member and needed to rent a car. So, I contacted AMAC, clicked on the TAB for Car Rentals and received a price of approximately $320. I then called the same company at our local airport and the price (for the same vehicle) was $110 CHEAPER. I then went back to AMAC and inquired as to why the BIG difference in price. Who ever it was that responded to me was very apologetic and “assured” me they would “look into it”. A few weeks went by and I contacted them again. Same response. A few more weeks and I was told they were still waiting for a response from their affiliate member. It’s been OVER a year and still no response. Bottom line is they (AMAC) as it is with (AARP) want you to feel cuddly warm a cozy with their claims of benefits when in fact it’s just not so. It’s ALL about the money!

I joined AMAC and decided to rent a vehicle through their “Discount” Program. I was funneled OFF to one of their so-called Associates and the price I was given sounded a bit high. So, I called the same rental agency at the Air Port and their price was $105 CHEAPER. Needless to say I rented directly. Upon returning home I e-mailed AMAC and the response informed me they would IMMEDIATELY look into it and get back with me. After three follow up e-mails I’m still waiting for a reason as to why the inflated price to rent a vehicle. AMAC, just as AARP…, it’s all about the money so what’s the point? While it’s only $15.00 a year I find that through my veterans group I receive real discounts on vehicles, motels, etc. I now have them filed in the Rip Off folder.

Car rentals are generally lower at airports than in local areas due to higher turnover. It has nothing to do their with their policy.

Checked out the discounts. Honestly, they suck, unless you eat Papa Johns pizzas without readily available other specials. This is basically a contribution to a lobby which, incidentally, I support. But don’t tell me I can save my membership dues on these pathetic discounts.

Retired at 66, I’ve paid heavily for health insurance since I was 27. Now, with retirement monthly income much less than when working, I feel like I am “nickled and dimed) to death.

no america does not have the best health care system in the world , check it out , health insurance payments are out of sight , the insurance co. make more money than ever , i have lived in two countries with national health insurance , and yes the care exceeds the care in america , if you want get better insurance get rid of special interest lobbies. influence on the congress and senate , but then you have to realize that people that sit in those in those bodies , are there not for you , but for the reason that benefits them and all special interest . i have absolutely no respect for congress and the senate , i my eyes they are political whores

We purchased AARP for 2 years. Found out they backed Obama care 2 months into the policy. Called AARP and told them to cancel our policy as we did not want it. Were told they would not return the money for the other 22 months that we were not insured. Just another example of how the big companies rip off us nobodies. AMAC could not be any worse than AARP.

That was why I switched to AMAC when we realized that they backed up the present presid.. . Got insurance for cars thru AARP for years and never ever did I pay so much. As the value of the car went down the payments got more higher until we just stop it and got our own. I agree they never really represented our interest.
