GAO CONFIRMS OBAMACARE ‘SENIOR SWINDLES SENIORS’: “Just how far will Obama go to win a second term?”
“Jeff Anderson of The Weekly Standard has scored another scoop. Last May, he exposed a hidden feature of Obamacare – a taxpayer-funded $8.5 billion scheme to cover up the likely loss of supplemental Medicare Advantage coverage for seniors. Now, he’s gotten hold of a letter from the General Accounting Office that the GAO is concerned about the legality of what Anderson called ‘Obama’s Senior Swindle’,” said Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.
The president needs seniors to vote for him if he is to win re-election, Weber pointed out. “That’s why he can’t afford to let them know that he’s tricking them. By using this so called demonstration project, Mr. Obama is delaying big increases in Medicare Advantage premiums until after the election. Otherwise many seniors will protest the expected increases by denying his reelection.”
Weber explained that the increases are the result of changes from provisions in Obamacare “and that’s why he’s willing to spend your big bucks to keep his little secret under wraps. Just how far is he willing to go to win a second term?”
In his article this week in the Standard, Anderson writes: “in a letter to [Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen] Sebelius dated July 11, 2012 and obtained by THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Lynn Gibson, the GAO’s general counsel, writes that the GAO remains “concerned” about the administration’s “legal authority to undertake the demonstration.”
The demonstration referred to in the letter was described by Anderson this way in his May article: “[the administration] launched an $8.35 billion ‘demonstration project’ to postpone the vast majority of Obamacare’s Medicare Advantage cuts until after what Obama likes to call his 'last election'. In truth, this isn’t really a demonstration project at all. It’s something closer to the opposite: an attempt to keep Obamacare’s effects from being demonstrated until it’s too late for voters to respond.”
The GAO also questioned the scope of the demonstration project, according to Anderson, noting “that there have been 85 other Medicare demonstration projects conducted in the 17 years since 1995. According to the GAO, Obama’s $8.35 billion gambit will cost more than all 85 other Medicare demonstration projects combined.
ABOUT YOUR GUEST, DANIEL WEBER:
Daniel C. Weber founded the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) in the summer of 2007.
As a boy, Dan’s first job was delivering newspapers for Newsday, the Long Island, New York, newspaper. The third child of five in a family with a moderate income, Dan learned early that if he wanted something he had to earn it.
Blessed with good teachers from both Catholic and public schools, Weber learned about honesty, decency, fairness and what “work ethic” was all about.
At age 16, and without any start-up money, Dan started his first business with three friends. The landscaping business he and his friends created enabled him to buy his first car, demonstrating the results of good, hard work and determination.
Two days after graduating from high school, Dan enlisted in the United States Air Force, where he served for four years before being honorably discharged. During his service, he was named “Airman of the Month” among more than 5,000 other personnel serving on the base.
Mr. Weber owned and operated a successful family insurance business for more than 30 years before retiring to form AMAC—an organization similar to the AARP--Except Weber has a different focus. In his opinion, the United States is going through a period of drastic change that is tearing down the traditional values of our country.
In Weber’s view, the very Constitution we were founded on is being disregarded. Each year the power of government increases while individual freedoms are threatened. High taxes are causing working families to suffer. As Weber puts it, “It seems an individual’s right to practice their religion is attacked, only to be replaced by a strange social order.”
A proud defender of free enterprise, Dan Weber feels we have the greatest economic system ever devised by man. Presently, he is working to retain our private health care system and prevent the government from turning it into socialized medicine.
Average, everyday, mature Americans have made their voices clear. Weber says, “They want to belong to an organization that will represent their best interest and I want to help them.” Dan Weber sees AMAC as a way to unite citizens to defend our American way of life.
To enrich the lives of AMAC’s members, Weber is assembling a package of benefits for Americans 50 that they cannot get anywhere else.
The Association of Mature American Citizens [http://www.amac.us] is a vibrant, vital and conservative alternative to those traditional organizations, such as AARP, that dominate the choices for mature Americans who want a say in the future of the nation. Where those other organizations may boast of their power to set the agendas for their memberships, AMAC takes its marching orders from its members, which has helped make AMAC the nation’s second largest Seniors organization. We act and speak on behalf of our members, protecting their interests, and offering a conservative insight on how to best solve the problems they face today.
