AARP Advertises for Healthcare Reform
Indiana AARP leaders are attempting to debunk healthcare reform myths through a statewide advertising campaign.
AAR-P Indiana State Director June Lyle claims there are special interest groups trying to block reform by using scare tactics like the notion that health care reform would ration your care, hurt medicare or be a government takeover.
Lyle claims these are actually false statements.
AARP maintains reform would provide more affordable coverage options and strengthen medicare by lowering prices. However, polling shows Americans who already have insurance are skeptical of proposals to expand coverage to nearly 50 million uninsured.
Concerns over Obama's proposal are heating up town hall meetings and internet chat rooms.
AARP is spending more than $250,000 in advertising this month in Indiana to push for reform.
