"You get the idea. So too, apparently, do the seniors they profess to serve. They wonder how AARP can support a nationalized medical system like in Britain or Canada in which people die on waiting lists and where your quality of life is assessed to determine if you are worth treating at all.
They wonder why a system where cost-effectiveness is the final criterion should be supported, a system where a shortage of doctors, finite funding and increased demand leads to rationed care. They know that in a choice between a 20-something and themselves, they will lose out.
Having paid into the system all their lives and now AARP dues, they are upset that illegal aliens will be covered by legislation that eliminates any proof-of-citizenship requirement. And they are furious that AARP would support 'reform' that includes 'end-of-life counseling' as if they're being encouraged to get out of the way.They know that the administration's plan is one big government 'do not resuscitate' order for seniors, and they don't want some government bureaucrat looking at some spreadsheet pulling their plug."
Perhaps "Bring out your dead' will make a comeback.
