Democrat HC Townhalls – a chance to directly report the specific Democrat Talking Points and refute them… [Updated]
“Unfortunately, the health insurance reform discussion has become clouded by a misinformation campaign that has deliberately spread myths and half-truths in order to frighten people about this legislation and protect the big insurance companies.” That is only the opening sentence in the purely propaganda pieces handed out at John Dingell’s (I call him Dingbat) Townhall held Thursday August 6, 2009 (one hour time limited, he’s | Read More »

The AARP Email Campaign Endorsing H.R. 3200, the Democrat’s Healthcare plan
Dear Erick:Here is the email the AARP is sending out:If your inbox is anything like mine, you’re getting a lot of emails about how SCARY health reform is. From allegations about rationing care to wild reports of government-sponsored euthanasia, the rumors just keep getting crazier.And I’ve had enough. Enough of the fear-mongering.

AARP Officially Endorses H.R. 3200, the Democrats’ Healthcare Overhaul
The AARP has finally come out and endorsed H.R. 3200, the Democrats’ healthcare overhaul, more commonly called “Obamacare.” Despite its non-partisan, non-profit status, AARP has decided to go all in championing Obamacare. It started a couple of weeks ago when the AARP held a townhall forum with Barack Obama to promote Obamacare. The carefully screened audience asked not very probing and probably pre-screened questions to | Read More »
AARP cancels “listening session” because audience won’t shut up and listen
This is a good one. The people in the room clearly weren’t ready to swallow the garbage the woman at the podium was spewing. It took her about two seconds to get all pissed off and huffy and rude before storming out like a spoiled little brat. These lefties can’t stand to hear any opposing voices.
Behold those scary, scary swastika-bearing astroturfers.

Organizers then left; meeting continued.) Complete with their quoting Madison and their insisting that AARP worked for them and not the other way around and their refusal to believe that AARP iasn’t sucking up to the administration on health | Read More »
AARP on ObamaCare
As we know, the “non-partisan” AARP is completely in the bag when it comes to whatever Democrats want, including on ObamaCare. Here are a few samples from a Q&A they have posted.

The powerful Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, Henry Waxman said today that the U.S. House nor the White House are bound by the three deals that the Hospitals, Pharma and the AARP have made with the U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus. As the WSJ reports: Some Democrats are questioning the recent $80 billion deal between the | Read More »
AARP declines to be shaken down by netroots.
In fact, I do believe that there’s a threat here: As publishers of the world’s largest magazine and the preeminent online destination for individuals 50+, we understand the desire to pursue advertising revenue. Additionally, no one is immune from our current economic crisis and we can appreciate your plea for increased ad revenue. That said, we also strongly honor the integrity of our journalists and | Read More »
