AARP Misleads Americans on Obamacare with Fred Claridge on The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet. Fred Claridge is the CEO of Certified Senior Guidance Association. You've heard the ads on the radio and TV from AARP that state the repeal of Obamacare by Mitt Romney would undermine the seniors and American's everywhere regarding their health. A vote for Romney is a vote for the destruction of Medicare and the healthcare industry. If you believe this ad, you are being misled.
AARP is nothing more than an insurance agency. Obamacare forces Americans to purchase insurance therefore the statement is a scare tactic for special interest groups, groups President Obama said should not exist in Washington. In this case AARP is a special interest group looking to benefit from Obamacare as it will help them sell more health and life insurance.
The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet is broadcast M-F on Blog Talk Radio and syndicated radio stations throughout the country. The Core Businesss Show is sponsored by Apple Capital Group, Inc..
