AARP Endorsement of Obamacare Comes to Georgia

They say they are not “endorsing” it, but they sure as heck are supporting it aggressively. You and I know they are endorsing H.R. 3200, the Democrats’ healthcare plan, but are just too chicken to come out and say it. Nonetheless, their actions speak volumes.

The AARP Georgia, already catching flak from some members for its support of President Barack Obama’s health care initiative, will hold a town hall meeting from 10 a.m. to noon today at the Collar Community Center, 2625 Joe Jerkins Blvd. in Austell.U.S. Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.) is scheduled to speak. The event is only open to AARP members who live in Scott’s district, the 13th Congressional District, and received an e-mail invitation.“There’s a fair amount of misinformation” about reform, said William F. Brown, the advocacy campaign manager of AARP’s Southeast Region. “We want to give our members an opportunity to learn what we’re fighting for. … A lot of people just see this through a political prism.”

David Scott, the Congressman who hates you and thinks you are racist if you dare oppose the healthcare plan, is the speaker.You must be wealthy enough to afford a computer and also have signed up to get emails from the AARP to attend.You must be in David Scott’s district.And they are going to talk about the “misinformation,” the AARP’s term for the inconvenient facts about the healthcare legislation.These people should be shut down. Time to cancel your AARP membership.
