ObamaCare Backer AARP Gets Exemption From ObamaCare

Posted by Dave Blount at May 20, 2011 10:39 AM

You might have wondered how the American Association of Retired Persons could throw its money and influence behind ObamaCare. True like most establishment associations it is run by moonbats, but it still has to look out for the interests of retirees or there's no point to its existence — and ObamaCare is about as friendly to seniors as Obama's foreign policy is to Israel. Now comes the explanation — supporting ObamaCare earned the AARP an exemption from it:

The Daily Caller has learned that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rate review rules, which it finalized on Thursday, exempt "Medigap" policy providers, like the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), from oversight when such providers increase payment rates for their supplemental insurance plans.
Insurance providers who aren't exempt from Obamacare's rate review rules are required to publicly release and explain some health care payment rate increases.
The AARP is the nation's biggest seller of Medigap policies, or supplemental healthcare plans that add onto what Medicare won't cover for seniors. The senior citizens interest group advocated for Obamacare to include an attack on Medigap policies' biggest competitor, Medicare Advantage.

As Big Government metastasizes, corruption spreads with it. The technical term for this process is Obamunism.
