Someone on another forum recommended American Seniors Assn as an alternative to the AARP. They will give you the second year free membership if you mail them your torn up AARP membership card. The membership is only $15 and their approach is much more conservative than the AARP.

My husband and I just joined today.

Check out AMAC, The association of Mature AMerican citizens, They are also an alternative to AARP and they offer a number of great discounts nationwide as well as comprehensive Insurance coverage. The price is also 15 dollars per year and it is great for conservative seniors. Check out their webpage below. Also, become a fan of their facebook, just search Association of Mature American citizens. "www.AMAC.US"

It's really cool that they are part of the Facebook application. Do you know if AARP does that as well? I'll have to recommend them to my dad. He's not huge on his AARP account right now due to the recession and everything.

AMAC gets a lot of publicity on conservative talk radio, which I listen to a lot.

Since I turned 50, I keep getting junk mail propaganda from AARP. But I would never join that communist organization!

yes, communist! AARP was the driving force behind ObamaCare, which is a communist plot if I ever heard one... or "socialist," if you prefer... it's all the same thing: the Big Brother State exercising its omnipotent power over the people and the private sector.

Somehow I'd take Big Brother State instead of the health insurance companies whose whole reason for existance seems to be to make more money by denying service and boosting premiums. BBS seems to have done OK with Medicare, and if that is Communist, I'm glad to have it.

If you think Medicare is OK, you have not been paying attention...

Medicare is rapidly running out of money, and ObamaCare will only add to the rolls. How can we as a nation afford these BBS "communist" programs when we are 14 trillion dollars in debt, and entitlement spending (of which Medicare and Medicaid are a part) compromise 60 percent of the budget??? There is no connection to reality here! And AARP shares much of the blame!

Here's what it means for me: I am self-employed and healthy. Thus, I have the cheapest health insurance I can find, because I really don't need it much. So Big Brother Obama comes along and he tells me based on my income, I have to buy a more comprehensive and more expensive healthcare plan. I don't need it and I don't want it, but that's what this intrusive new law says. I have to buy it, or I get fined or I go to jail! Welcome to the Soviet Union!

Whether that is communism, fascism, or any other Statist -ism you may wish to call it, I am not glad to have it. And it is unconstitutional, as a judge recently ruled.

I don't belong to any "senior" organization, but if I did, it would be AMAC.
AARP is for idiots and losers.

So, if you've already found health insurance, even if it's less coverage, you have to drop it and get these other things?

Do you know if anything further has happened with the ruling of this being unconstitutional?

I know initially they make this health care overhaul seem more affordable and people w/out coverage will have it, yet here where I live, I'm seeing case after case where illegal immigrants, elderly, poor, displaced worker, we're being treated everytime we go in for something. The hospital though is in Iowa City but there are doctors clinics all over dedicated to this. It's free or $10.00 a night in the hospital.

Just recently a friend of our went in for open heart surgery. He didn't have health ins. but it was covered. His hospital stay was also $10.00 a night.

As far as the new Big-Brother/health care overhaul thing goes, I think they're leaving out the most important, unwelcomed aspect of just what it means. It's like a web with spindles planting a host in every single area of your living, from what you eat to the types of innoculations you are behind on (you'll just be scheduled to get them) what care you will recieve depending on your age and habits and even what will be avalable in the groccery stores and who will plant what and how.

I don't understand how people can not see this, regardless of what age we are? Most of us are already a number (social security) but there was always freedom to do this or that, a logical freedom unless someone went prying into your personal life.

I see a world coming where our SS number will be attached to the debit card, make an model of car, personal views, computer activity, it will all now be on one screeen. Just F3 and hand them your card.
