After losing Big Bird, Obama loses old birds … AARP tells Team O to cease and desist.

One of the few shots that Romney missed during the debate was when Pres. Obama gave the AARP a shout-out for supporting ObamaCare.

Why?

Do you think that the  AARP supported ObamaCare because it cares deeply about seniors?

Nope.  It’s because the elimination of Medicare Advantage programs was a windfall for the AARP insurance business:

Thanks to its cuts to Medicare Advantage, ObamaCare is expected to expand the number of seniors buying “medigap” supplemental insurance plans,”

AARP controls 34 percent of the market for such plans.

According to a 2011 House Ways and Means Committee report, AARP stands to make between $55 million and $166 million from ObamaCare in 2014 alone

Apparently the AARP is feeling guilty about their ObamCare pay-off

According to the Washington Examiner

AARP released a statement telling Obama not to do that again.

“While we respect the rights of each campaign to make its case to voters, AARP has never consented to the use of its name by any candidate or political campaign. AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates nor coordinate with any candidate or political party.”

Losing Big Bird and Old Birds in the same week can’t be a good sign.
