    Re: AARP Raises Costs for Employees' Insurance Plans

    Obama care will increase costs during hard economic times. This is why the GOP wants to stop it.

    The GOP wants to stop it, because it will cost the Health Insurers a little bit more. For **** sake, do you really wanna go back to the times where Health Insurers could drop you for an abritrary reason?

    How does it make sense, that if everyone had to get Health Insurance, that the premiums would rise, if everyone had to get it, insurers would have to scramble to get everyones business, therefore have to offer lower premiums.

    I mean logically speaking, if you have to buy something, you're gonna go for the lowest costs.

    Granted there are parts of the bill that are terrible, that much we can agree on. But the entire thing isn't bad, and I wouldn't be surprised if the insurance companies conspired to raise costs as much as possible, before the law goes into effect to get people against it, because they know they have to lower costs after.

    The GOP is in the Insurance companies pockets, do not think they're doing this out of the goodness of their hearts.

    Right, because all of your 20-something years on this Earth and deep experience within the United States would make you an authority on that.

    Me, I want to go back to the time when people paid their own health costs and third-party payers didn't distort the market.

    Wrong the GOP wants to get rid of this government take over and put in logical rules. Such as no preexisting conditions preventing being insured.

    Thank you for being consistent in your worship of Obama who can do no wrong the lying no good idiot.

    Obama is responsible for the costs going up on ALL insurance ALL insurance costs and about 11 new taxes to come.

    AARP helped push this stupid no good worthless plan that those of us who back the Conservative, Tea Party are going to shut down.

    You don't know? No one paying attention couldn't name at least one big one.

    Re: AARP Raises Costs for Employees' Insurance Plans

    he promised a thousand times costs would go down

    he failed

    he promised a lot of things, like unemployment would cap at 8% if he got his stimulus, he'd cut the deficit in half in 4 years, we'd like obamacare once we got to know it, he'd be post partisan and post racial, close gitmo and end rendition and detention, talk to the leaders of iran and improve america's image abroad, try ksm in a civil court in manhattan, prosecute the waterboarders at the cia, renegotiate chinese currency, win global warming accords, end dadt (his own doj is arguing against gay rights in the districts on 2 separate matters, dadt and gay marriage), bring the israelis and palestinians together (what happened to hillary's hi profile peace talks last month?), reform immigration comprehensively (instead he sues AZ), avoid lobbyists (he's the top recipient of aig money), put legislation on line (instead nancy says we gotta pass stuff to know what's in it), be transparent (his fed instructed aig to keep secrets from the sec, he signed the infamous secret deal with phrma, he's fighting foia requests for records detailing exactly who was bailed out and how much)...

    yeah, he promised lots of things

    and he means well---LOL!

    everyone outside the fringe recognizes he's incompetent, it's cuz he just doesn't get it, he's so outta touch, so tone deaf

    as for aarp---when i was young we were all told that the most powerful special interest lobby in the usa was aipac, the american israel public affairs committee

    in my middle years i always felt it was aarp (tho the nra has always been a major player)

    well, aarp has just destroyed itself over this obamacare

    AARP loses members over health care stance - USATODAY.com

    we all of that age watched it happen, it was very ugly

    aarp is the new now, they've made themselves irrelevent
