vs. AARP – Battling for the Hearts and Minds of Seniors
amac aarp battling hearts minds seniors

On Thursday, August 23, 2012 the New York Times
reported on a new study conducted and released by Sentier Research, that details
just how bad this recession has been, and continues to be, for America.

The findings for Mature Americans, especially
those looking to retire soon, are especially tragic. According to the NY Times,
the study finds that, "Households led by people between the ages of 55
and 64 have taken the biggest hit;
their household incomes have fallen
to $55,748 from $61,716 over the last three years, a decline of 9.7

standards of living for Americans and future generations should be increasing
and improving over time - not reversing downward!
study only confirms what we already know. With household incomes dropping, slow
business growth, 42 consecutive months of unemployment over 8% - and real
unemployment well over 10% - the Obama-Economy has been dismally bad... the
worst in generations.
misguided policies from the White House and liberals in Congress have done very
little to alleviate the problems. In fact, they have spent of trillions of
taxpayer dollars for little in return but trillion dollar deficits and trillions
added to the debt!
risky, Big Government experiments like the "stimulus" and ObamaCare have only
increased the uncertainty and instability, and are core reasons for the
persistently high unemployment and why the household incomes of Mature Americans
have declined by so much.
The Association of Mature American Citizens
believes that we can do
better. As a steadily growing alternative to groups like AARP, and with an
expanding influence in the Nation's Capitol, we aim to champion the interests of
Mature Americans, Seniors and Prospective Retirees. We believe in religious
freedom, free enterprise and support common sense solutions to our Nation's
largest challenges.
- Our livelihoods, our families' future prosperity and our standards of living
should not be threatened from bad policies emanating from Washington DC.

President Dan Weber presents a sampling of the petitions signed by AMAC Members
to repeal ObamaCare at a press conference immediately following the Supreme
Court ruling.
email chains between the White House and AARP detailed how AARP abandoned the
will of its members on ObamaCare for political advantage.
fact, on September 20, 2012 Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal
to just-released emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now
know that AARP worked through 2009-10 as an extension of a Democratic White
House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from
Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know
that despite AARP's awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill,
the ‘nonpartisan membership organization' chose to serve the president's
71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House,
scripting the president's talking points, working to keep its board ‘in line',
and pledging a fealty to ‘the cause.' Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP
seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election."

refuses to take a formal position on the Independent Payment Advisory Board
("rationing board") portion of ObamaCare and even defends some aspects of the
board. Given the negative impact that the IPAB will have on seniors, this is
unbelievable (but sadly, not unexpected). As AMAC continues to grow and build a
presence in DC, we're able to stand up to the tremendous lobbying power of AARP
on behalf of concerned conservative Americans that feel abandoned by an
organization that was supposed to be looking out for the best interest of its
members - not its pocketbook.
Senator told us, "You have got to grow AMAC!" When we asked him why he said,
"You don't understand, when AARP comes to our committees they say they represent
older Americans. We know at times, they really don't, but because of their
numbers we have got to listen to them. When AMAC has one million members we can
tell them they are not the only one we will listen to."
can do something AARP will not do - we'll help replace the horror of ObamaCare
with common sense solutions that will preserve our rights while improving the
level of Health Care for all Americans! To do it, we need your help!
you want an organization that will speak out for the values you believe in,
preserve rights improving level health care americans organization speak values

    My father in law died in church, the one he grew up in and later after WWII was drawn into the ministry; he shared his thought with me concerning the AARP over a decade ago...He questioned God on why he and his crew made it out on those missions over Europe where planes were being hit and falling out of the skies... He is gone now, but not forgotten... he passed away 2005 my papa left 2007; both WWII Veterans and sorely missed...
