Jim Martin, “Obama, AARP mired in political strategy, could care less about solutions.”

Departure of Rationing Czar Berwick Brings Cheers, Early Thanks from America’s Seniors

60 Plus Chairman Jim Martin, “The life expectancy of every senior just went up a few ticks.”

(Alexandria, Virginia) – Seniors across America have another reason to give thanks as the holiday weekend approaches, with news that Medicare and Medicaid head Donald Berwick will step down December 2nd.  Berwick took the position in July, 2010 courtesy of a recess appointment from President Obama, as even Senate Democrats — at the time holding a 59 seat majority — could not stomach his views in support of rationing medicine to the elderly, and ‘romance’ with the tragic and ailing British medical system.

(Alexandria, Virginia) – 60 Plus Association Chairman Jim Martin, leader of the nation’s largest conservative seniors advocacy group, responded to a new Kaiser Family Foundation survey released today that revealed that far from lowering health care premiums as the President promised, his health care legislation has caused individual and family private insurance premiums to skyrocket in 2011, at a rate 300% higher than in 2010.  Premiums increased on average 3% in 2010, and so far in 2011 are up between 8% to 9% since last year.

60 Plus Association Applauds 11th Circuit Decision on ObamaCare

Chairman Jim Martin: “Apparent to almost everyone this bad medicine runs counter to our Constitution.

(Alexandria, Virginia) – The 60 Plus Association applauds the decision handed down today from the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals holding the individual mandate portion of President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation as “unconstitutional.”

“Another domino falls,” said Chairman Jim Martin. “Courts around our nation charged with upholding our Constitution are repeatedly finding what many knew long before this health care law was passed – this is bad medicine for America, and the federal government far exceeded its authority in ramming this horrific legislation down our throats.

“Republicans, Democrats and independents have been fighting the crucial battle to overturn this health care law almost since the moment it passed.  Let’s hope this case makes it to the Supreme Court sooner rather than later, so families and businesses are not kept in limbo waiting to find out if one sixth of our economy is going to remain the personal sandbox of politicians and federal bureaucrats.

“Obama’s health care law is not yet fully implemented, yet it has done immeasurable damage already to America’s economy, financial security and health care environment.  The 11th Circuit deserves praise from every lover of freedom in doing the right thing in moving this terrible legislation ever closer to the graveyard of bad ideas where it belongs.”
