AARP: Welcome to Hypocrites Paradise

We just have to offer a charter membership to AARP for it’s participation in support of the Obama regimes drive to ram healthcare down our throats and then turning on it’s employees when it comes time to pay for it. AARP heavily lobbied for the passage of the Healthcare Bill and was the leader in advertising it on TV to try to drum up support for it with the American people.

AARP announced in an email to its employees that health care premiums will increase by 8 percent to 13 percent next year because of rapidly rising medical costs.

And AARP adds that it’s changing copayments and deductibles to avoid a 40 percent tax on high-cost health plans that takes effect in 2018 under the law. Aerospace giant Boeing also has cited the tax in asking its workers to pay more. Shifting costs to employees lowers the value of a health care plan and acts like an escape hatch from the tax.

“Most plan co-pays and deductibles have been modified,” Jennifer Hodges, AARP’s director of compensation and benefits, wrote employees in an Oct. 25 e-mail. “Plan value changes were necessary not only from a cost management standpoint but also to ensure that AARP’s plans fall below the threshold for high-cost group plans under health care reform.”

Although AARP tried to claim that the healthcare bill was a small part of the reason for their healthcare coverage changes, it just exposes them as the true hypocrites that they really are.

Most insurance companies in the last month or so have claimed that their costs are rising because of the implementation of certain features in the healthcare bill, like no benefit maximums, allowing children up to the age of 26 to stay on their parents coverage, and allowing pre-existing conditions. AARP is no different.

Not only that, as mentioned above, changing co-payments and deductibles to avoid the Cadillac tax are all changes that degrade the level of coverage their employees currently have, all thanks to AARP’s support of Obamacare.

So now thanks to AARP’s support of Obamacare, their employees will now pay more money for less coverage. What a bargain!
