Borrow a brain would ya? Obama, nor Romney nor any past or future president can control gas prices. $10 a gallon is only a few years away. Why? China and their insatiable appetite for cars...

China will be buying 15-20 million cars a year for a long time (compared to the U.S. 12.5 million (or so)).

It will be about 3 more days till the polls fully reflect the debate. The story will be on the front page for 2 days until the VP debate displaces it.

 

BTW the Obama ads quote AARP on Medicare. If we were in Florida we would see those ads nonstop.

AARP doesn't like it....

 

But America’s voters deserve more than talking points and 30-second sound bites.

 

“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.

AARP objects to a voucher system for Medicare. I guess if they are quoted accurately, then they will be in Obama's ads. And they are.

The AARP thing is a little strange because thanks to Obamacare, AARP is going to make between $55 and $166 million in 2014, thanks to Obamacare legislation. Guess they don't want the old folks to know that.

 

It is also heavily involved in the insurance business. Insurers pay AARP to use its name, and that accounts for 60 percent of the organization's revenue. Membership dues account for just 17 percent.

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.

But AARP also sells Medicare Advantage, which is being cut. You'd think that if they were calling the shots they'd have stopped that.

 

But you best get out your soapbox and let them old folks know whatever it is you want them to know. They don't seem to care too much for Ryan and his vouchers.

Biden could do very well if he is careful. I doubt he is going to play it like Obama.

Probably because they have no clue what it is about. Put a headline out that says anything bad about Medicare and the seniors flip out. They don't like change.

 

But AARP also sells Medicare Advantage, which is being cut. You'd think that if they were calling the shots they'd have stopped that.

Different product lines with different profit margins. If you can push a customer to a higher profit margin product and make more money...... well hopefully you get the picture.
