Cancelling your AARP membership
 
----------------------------
The AARP is supporting the terrible Republican Medicare drug bill.

In protest I have canceled my membership in this organization.

To cancel your membership and let them know of your feelings about this betrayal of the needs of
seniors call

AARP at
1 800 424 3410

Forward this message to everyone you know
who is over the age of 50.
--------------------
The PRESCRIPTION DRUG BILL.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR THE HMO's AND DRUG COMPANIES?

For starters:
Prohibits Medicare from negotiating lower prices
No limitation on drug prices.
Canadian drugs will remain illegal.
Private insurance companies will run drug benefit
Where are the $$$ Going?
$15,000,000,000 to HMO's & PPO's to be given as a sweetener.
$70,000,000,000 to employers to get them to
keep private retirement plans.
$20,000,000,000 to hospitals and doctors.
ALMOST $0000000000 to beneficiaries
Doesn't this make you mad?
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
Virtually nothing unless you make less than $12123 annually and you have
less than $6000 in
assets. (Own a car? Own a house? Tough on you!)

For the rest of us NOTHING-NADA-ZILCH
NO BENEFIT UNTIL 2006.
Introduces a variable pricing schedule
You pay all costs between $2200 and $3600
Payments for home health care will be reduced
Medicare costs will be capped-
Is rationing in the cards?

If you think this is a bad deal for you call
Clinton and Schumer (in NY) or you Senator
toll free- 1-877-331-1223. Tell them to defeat this bill any which way
they
can. If they can filibuster over three judges they certainly can do it for
the future of Medicare

Well, yes; that would be obvious; however, this is alt.FOOD.diabetic, not
alt.support.diabetic or alt.IHATEAARP.diabetic.

There are places where that notice would be on topic; I just get tired of
wading through a high volume of off-topic messages to get to the FOOD
messages. Some days, reading this stuff is all fiber and no nutrition.

Hopefully this law will be defeated and replaced by a law that really helps diabetics.
You should be able to pay for your medications and still be able to afford the proper food that will
not hurt your diabetes.
