The AARP Goes Nurse Ratched on Seniors

Thursday, August 6, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Watch the video below, and ask yourself if Nurse Ratched from AARP was following the company line, and whether the sideswipe delivered by the “AARP volunteer” against profits is a good line for a “non-partisan” organization to be adopting, particularly one that pushes insurance products to its members.

A bumpersticker, “Grandma Got Run Over By Obamacare,” will be available here very soon, and I expect it will do very well.

I also expect that AARP is already suffering blowback from its obvious identification with Obamacare and its refusal to fight the approach of rationing via the “government option/public plan.” Seniors are extraordinarily wired into the information networks of the age, and they are concluding that AARP is not their representative anymore, but an elitist, favor-currying group of lefties in love with the new president. There is a huge opening right now for an alternative to AARP that will genuinely represent seniors, not use them as profit centers.
