One of the concerns raised at a recent AARP Health Care Seminar I attended was the cost of the health care reform legislation being discussed at this time. The AARP representative admitted paying for the program is something still being worked out. When our country is already over $11,000,000,000,000 in debt, why are we considering a program that we do not know how to fund? This is the time ratchet down our spending, not create new expensive programs.
On July 13, I attended an AARP seminar on Health Reform. Although the AARP representatives claimed they are not endorsing any bill at this time, all the literature handed out at the meeting referred seemed to support HR3200, which will lead to government takeover of the health care system. Government takeovers of Health Care in other countries do not help the older sector of society. Also, many seniors I talk to are not necessarily concerned for themselves. They want to preserve liberty for future generations. The AARP representatives say they want to hear from their members. If you belong to AARP, please contact them and let them know what you think about Health Care reform. Tell them to say no to government run health care.
