Statement from 60 Plus President Amy Frederick Regarding Pending Litigation

March 10, 2016

“It saddens me that Mr. Martin is choosing to make a public spectacle of a matter that should have been addressed internally within our organization, not in a court room.  The dispute that he references in his most recent published document is one that we continue to believe is without merit and should be dismissed.  I grew up at 60 Plus and helped build it.  The allegation that I am now somehow trying to destroy the very mission on which I have built my entire professional career is intended, in my view, to provoke an unprofessional response which will naturally not occur.  For that reason, I am taking this opportunity to say publicly that 60 Plus remains an organization that is proceeding with business as usual – we owe that to our supporters and our mission. Because I take seriously my obligation to run our Association and fulfill our commitment to our donors and the millions of seniors we represent, I refuse to engage with Mr. Martin in a public battle. I strongly believe that my attorneys will successfully demonstrate that the allegations made against me and my colleagues are without merit. Now that Mr. Martin has made what was an entirely internal negotiation a matter for the court, no further comment from me regarding this matter will be forthcoming.  Any other approach is counter to the interests of the association.”

Statement from 60 Plus Association on Supreme Court King v. Burwell Decision

 

Jim Martin: Today’s Supreme Court ruling does not make Obamacare costs go down, it does not lower skyrocketing premiums, it does not add more doctors, undo the torpedoing of Medicare or solidify the crumbling state exchanges. The last word on this law will not come from deceitful politicians, lying bureaucrats or a judge. It will come from we, the people.

Burwell decision today. Said 60 Plus Chairman and Founder Jim Martin:
