AARP Backs Off -- For Now

From the Associated Press as reported in the Columbus Dispatch:
At the town hall in Portsmouth, N.H., [President] Obama said, "We have the AARP onboard because they know this is a good deal for our seniors." He added, "AARP would not be endorsing a bill if it was undermining Medicare."

But Tom Nelson, AARP's chief operating officer, said, "Indications that we have endorsed any of the major health care reform bills currently under consideration in Congress are inaccurate."
I am glad to see that the AARP is beginning to awaken to the fact that Obamacare will ultimately result in pulling the plug on grandma. Oh, that is not the intent -- today. That is not what the current bills say in black and white -- today. No one is saying the Obama wants to pull the plug on grandma. But we the people can see that that sort of rationing is the logical and inevitable result of government run health care.

Obama lying about the AARP of course is typical Obama. Like the rest of the Democrats, he is delusional about the support for his own plan.

Read the polls, Mr. President. Pass your health care plans, take away our health care freedom, and expect a Republican Congress next time around. And a Republican president in four years.
