(Baton Rouge, LA) — In a newly released radio ad, the 60 Plus Association, on behalf of its 110,000 senior citizen supporters in the Bayou State, is holding AARP’s feet to the fire for supporting dangerous legislation in the Louisiana State Legislature that waters down the standards of surgical safety and puts seniors eyesight at risk. HB 1065 and SB 568 would remove the requirement of a medical degree and a license to practice medicine in order to perform a wide variety of eye surgery. Specifically, this legislation would allow optometrists—eye care professionals who are not medical doctors, not medical school graduates, and who do not have a license to practice medicine—to perform laser scalpel and laser surgery on and around the eye including such surgery as reconstructive eyelid surgery, glaucoma laser surgery, and injections of highly potent pharmaceutical agents into the eyelid and surrounding tissues near the eye.

Debunking the AARP myths
AARP would have you believe that everyone in Colorado still uses the old “black phone” attached to that wire coming out of your wall. And, that any change in current law would lead to an army of technicians marching across the state cutting every wire in site. This is 2014, and the facts just don’t support AARP’s misleading claims being leveled against this reform package of legislation.

Jim Martin, “It’s time people got over any notion that the AARP is working for the benefit of anything more than their own bottom line and political fiefdom in Washington.”
(Alexandria, Virginia) – A front-page story in the December 4 edition of the Washington Post exposed in detail how the AARP stands to lose hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue if Congress and the President reform Medigap, a proposal AARP has consistently lobbied against, despite earlier denials. Under proposed reforms, seniors who purchase Medigap would pay lower premiums and the U.S. would save billions in healthcare costs. Despite these benefits, AARP opposes such measures because they not only negatively impact the group’s main source of revenue, but the personal income of their executives as well.

We believed, and rightly so, they were operating in our best interest, representing the issues and concerns of elderly Americans in Washington and across the 50 states. But sadly, those days are long in the past, distant memories as faded as scrapbook photos locked in an attic.

Jim Martin, “AARP is a laughingstock with seniors, they have no credibility. This is why America’s elderly are voting overwhelmingly for Governor Romney and Paul Ryan.”
(Alexandria, Virginia) – While the AARP seeks to put distance between itself and the White House in an attempt to appear neutral and non-partisan, its leaders continue to praise Obamacare heading into the final weeks of the 2012 election. New AARP President Robert Romasco made comments this week saying that Obamacare is a good thing for seniors, because “insurance companies will be prevented from throwing people off once they are on it… and [Obamacare] extends the life of the Medicare trust fund another eight years.”
