Help AMAC’s President Meet President Trump

Have your voice heard!

When you receive the current issue of AMAC Advantage Magazine, please sign & mail the petition located in the center to get AMAC’s President, Dan Weber, a meeting with President Donald Trump!

In the current issue (Volume 12 Issue 5) of your AMAC Advantage Magazine there is a tear out petition to President Trump to meet with Dan Weber, president and founder of AMAC. The purpose of the meeting is to introduce to the President our proposals to save and improve Social Security, reduce the cost of health care and to offer solutions to the immigration crisis.

We need many petitions returned to show the White House that we have a true membership of one million four hundred thousand members and that our members want action on these issues.

There is an old expression, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease” and that certainly is the case in Washington, DC.

AMAC is your voice in the Capitol!

If you want us to be heard – please tear out the petition from the magazine, sign and mail it to us today. Let’s exercise our right to petition in order to protect our nation from those who want to replace freedom with socialism, religion with secularism and personal rights with government control.

God Bless America,

Dan Weber
President, Association of Mature American Citizens

To request additional petitions, please fill out the form or call 888-262-2006

I really don’t think the Government should be in the Insurance business, just the Social Security and Medicaids and SSIs and the Medicare. There are many Insurance Business that want more business and have the professional business setup. Maybe the Insurance Companies need to quit being so profit oriented and be regulated and restricted as to what the Insurance Companies can or can not write off or add. The Insurance Companies probably pay millions for their multi-media advertising, junk mail, magnets, ask-a-nurse, skype doctors, etc. programs they give to entice clients. I don’t want any of those things, I just want to go to my doctor. Seems like that as much as everyone wants good coverage all that advertising money could be eliminated to pass money back in more coverages and lower premiums payments. If there was an insurance company that did not spend these millions on advertising and had great coverage the word would get around anyway. I am a retired Gov employee and I took my insurance with me and the premium goes up every year but some of the coverage gets written off and replaced with some programs I don’t use. Some of my fellow friends tell me they have dropped their insurance before and after retirement and gone to the Medicare Insurance Plans and they are paying about half. I mainly want my Insurance plan in case of a hospital type emergency. Anyway, the insurance companies seem to be the ones having it the easiest in getting more help ( via taxpayers) from the Government. Maybe I am wrong but it seems that way.

Im a bit confused…why do you ask us how many petitions we want? So, if we request more than one petition, in your drop down menu, does that give us more chances of being heard..or..?? I don’t get it?

My Vol 12 issue 5 had the petition removed. I hope no one is removing the petitions trying to prevent us from sending our petitions in to be counted. I know from working for President Reagan that it is important to have signed paper petitions because the opposition inflates their numbers and creates false petitions and most times they are never challenged. Conservatives are held to a different standard and must always prove our numbers so signed paper is important. I had to go online and request three petitions be sent to me for me and my family to sign and return.

I have to agree with the member below who wonders why members can’t sign the petition online as well. There are many, many petitions available for signing online… AMAC should join that list. ALSO, you should address the fact that the “other” senior citizen organization endorsed The Affordable Care Act, and as a result the Obama administration rewarded them with $80M… which has to beg the question, whose best interests does “that other” organization put first?

Please create an online petition. It is archaic to use mail which is inviting identity theft.

I’ve heard that US mail delivered in sacks full of physical presence, deliver a more potent statement, than a summary, which can be deleted with a keystroke. This is why old fashioned methods of phone calls trump e-communications, and personal meetings trump phone calls.

I’m betting that AMAC’s professional marketers are not as hapless as some might think. Additional formats might seem like the only right thing to do in all cases, but I think that in the case where a company has a specific mail-in campaign, it may just keep a lot of people from responding to their request for a physical mailing… which I’m sure they have put some time and expense into already.

What difference is there between a petition and “righteous protest” of the liberals.. Don’t you think the difference bet Conservative and Liberal is that Conservatives are more accountable and therefore perhaps supportive? Is there any possible way WE could be the ones to stop this childishness of treating every President like Santa Claus? I think the whole idea of politics is civic duty and not always belabor the duties of our elected officials. This should initiate the process (possibly aligned with bi-partisanship but also “checks and balances”) letting The President know that we like what we see and would like to be more supportive of him and if he would have any suggestions as to alleviate some of the pressures AS WELL AS stating how he might be of assistance to our community and population.

In this date and time you are telling me you can’t come up with the means to do an online petition? Really!!!
On these items
1). SS: Collected funds under no circumstances be touched for anything other then Social Security.
2). HC: everyone needs to be free of all exclusive medical benefits like the ones the members of Congress have they should have to deal with the same crap ? as the rest of us.
3). Immigration: Build the damn WALL!

I don’t agree with sending a postcard with my signature & information on it thru the mail system. Why isn’t there a site to sign the petition ONLINE?

You are right to be paranoid. However, they would need to nearly duplicate our population with government spies, before we will have to worry about every sent postcard being duplicated and recorded. As it is now though, they know everything else.

New gun control measures being introduced, want access to your social media accounts for the last three years.

This country’s population gave up many freedoms for a sense of security to Homeland, after September 11th.

This should help you resolve that problem. If you scroll down past these comments, towards the bottom of this page…The second black heading is AMAC Foundation. At the bottom of the column click on contact.

I am no signing such a petition as I do not agree with Weber’s proposals on Socisl Security.

Pass a law that exempts seniors from paying any more income taxes. If we are retired and on social security / pension, our income now is fixed based on our lifetime earnings. We have paid more than our fair share. We should also be exempt from state property taxes. Also fight to get our expensive and cost-prohibitive drug RX’s to where we can afford them. Our RX’S cost the most of anywhere in the world. That is ridiculous. Johnie P.

Check with your county. Mine offers a significant reduction in your property taxes, for those 65 and older. They don’t advertise it, but it’s there for the asking.
The reason our prescriptions cost more, is because they pawn off all of their R & D costs onto us. Then they can sell millions of more pills to poorer nations.

R&D costs a lot and has it has to be determined that, that 1 or 2 out of 300 million that might be adversely affected by the drug don’t take the drug or it won’t actually kill them. If it does the drug it is immediately pulled from the market, loss of revenue, until it can again to be proven safe, again at a cost to the drug maker. Even then it has to be renamed because of the bad publicity that it has received. Then there are the ambulance chasing lawyers just waiting to make a few million on class action lawsuits. All of this has to factor into the drug cost.
Tort reform is one way to drive down the cost of drugs and shorten the length of time to market. Another roadblock that drives up cost is the FDA being beyond cause to allowing a new drug getting to market. There have been drugs safely used in Europe for several years with no ill effects yet FDA wants our drug companies here to do more research.
These other countries everyone seems to say have lower cost drugs do not have the roadblocks that we have in this country and their tort laws are better there. I would love lower med costs as I take a handful. But let’s be realistic about why our drugs cost more and take longer to reach the market. Demand these changes to tort and FDA. If these seriously happen, watch the drop in the cost of meds.
So yes, their overhead is passed on to the consumer, this occurs in every product that you buy. Due to shoplifting are you aware that at least 10% of the cost of what you buy is to cover the cost of shoplifting?

You go Johnie! I like this idea AND I also think Vets (I am one) who have dedicated their lives to the government, should also be exempt from these taxes.

Those who are Millionaires, Billionaires and beyond, should be paying these higher taxes!

With all the lobbying AMAC does in Washington, on your various proposals, you mean to say you can’t get a summary of your proposals to the WH Chief of Staff? Have McConnell or one of the other Republican Senators or members of the House send a copy via e-mail to the attention of the President or his staff. Certainly you must have already delivered copies to Trump’s HHS Secretary over the last two years as well. Now if you want a photo op with the President, then I can understand why you want a face to face.

Paul E – from what I understand from a friend who works at AMAC, although they were successful getting info to the White House staff and had several meetings at the EOB (part of the White House)- most of the info sent or delivered to the White House goes to a ‘black Hole” and people rarely get a reply.
Apparently the White House Staff and leadership offices spend most of their time listening to the big donors- not the grass roots.

Or perhaps they actually read the various AMAC proposals and realized that they didn’t align with what the President is trying to accomplish. After all, virtually all the AMAC proposals entail, at their core, a large presence of the federal government in either a managerial role or a central planning and regulatory role. The Progressive model where central government plays a keys role in determining what the public is allowed to have or do. Neither of which fits into the whole “personal choice of the individual” that the President keeps emphasizing. The less government more personal control of your own life approach. Having read all the AMAC proposals myself a number of times, they more accurately line up with what Paul Ryan was pushing with his set of Better Way solutions. Which didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome by either the President or most of the public that votes Republican.

It’s fine that Mr. Weber wants to get a photo op with the President for publicity purposes for the organization. Nothing wrong with that. However, he shouldn’t pretend its to personally present AMAC proposals to the President. All President Trump would do with any such materials would be to immediately hand them off to the very people who have already received copies of it for review.

I find it hard to believe that you don’t also have a way for your members to sign the petition ONLINE for Dan Weber to meet with the President. I am a paralyzed (quadriplegic) person and do all petitions online with my speaking program and have never not been able to do so since I was paralyzed 10 years ago!

I agree Dan, and to have it available online for folks to “write their own narrative” requesting a meeting. Maybe I’m just old school, but when I was active in political actions a “personalized” contact was significantly more impactful. Just saying……

Ditto here. I’m an amputee in a wheelchair and cannot get out of my house alone.
I have to call a neighbor to put mail in box
on the street and to bring mail in.
