912 Super Seniors Groups News

On 9-11-2011 Will You Offer Remembrance and Comfort?

What will you do?

The 912 Super Seniors and The 912 Project are reaching out to 912’ers and to all Patriot groups across our nation.  We ask that you become part of what will be a massive display of America’s unity in acts of remembrance and tribute to our fellow Americans whose lives ended without warning or fault on 9-11-2011.

So beginning now, and over the coming twelve months, we challenge each group to visit


This site is intended for posting messages in memory of each of the deceased.

What better way to unite around our value of America’s safety and security from those who would destroy our freedoms than for each 912 and Patriot group to choose one name and add a message of your act of remembrance.

The Commack chapter of the 912 Super Seniors will be donating books to our school libraries with inscribed tributes to four victims, one from each of the 9-11 attack sites.  We have chosen books from the Freedom Series of the non-profit http://homemakersforamerica.org/wordpress/?page_id=32

Over the year beginning 9-11-2011, we will monitor the site to insure that each victim is remembered with a posted message from a 912 or other Patriot group.

And let us, the millions of Americans joined in 912 and Patriot groups, serve defiant notice on those who would threaten America’s security and precious freedoms. Let those who attacked us on 9-11, or would do so on any tomorrow, know we cherish and will protect each American’s life as the very essence of our liberty, freedoms and prosperity.

In summary:

Please post to your remembered one here:


Also, please send their name along with your group’s name and website to:

912SuperSeniors@gmail.com with subject line “Standing Together We Remember”

On 9-12-2001, Americans came together in every city and town searching for meaning in this tragedy…but there was none to be found.  Instead we found the solace and strength of Americans of every persuasion and belief comforting one another and openly displaying their love for our country.

Let our acts of remembrance for those taken on 9-11 remind us to hold fast to that which unites us as surely as we were “One nation, under God, indivisible” on 9-12-2001.







Obamacare: Government Decided and Government Provided.

by Barbara Samuells

In 2014 your healthcare will change.
Your doctors and hospitals are all planning changes right now to comply with the PPACA
(Obamacare) so they can remain in business.

Did you know that in 2011 your W-2 will have to include the value of employer provided healthcare benefits?  Not taxed…yet.

Did you know millions of low income Seniors, income under about $20,000 per couple,will be forced onto Medicaid?

Did you know that 17% of hospitals may close due to PPACA (Obamacare) per the CBO (Congressional Budget Office)?

Did you know a physician shortage of 63,000 doctors is estimated by 2015 as doctors retire and move into other medical roles to escape PPACA?

Did you know that all insurance companies will provide only those treatments approved by the Secretary of HHS or the company will be OUT of the insurance exchange and OUT of business?

Did you know what happens in your doctor’s office no longer stays there? Your medical history, procedures, medications, conditions, will be available to your dentist, therapist, any medical professional treating you and various government workers overseeing the database.

Did you knowthat in 2011 cuts to Medicare home health care are denying basic services such as home health care,  physical therapy and home health aides?

Did you know that in 2012 Medicare cuts to
dialysis treatments begin?

Did you know that in 2012 cuts to Medicare Hospice

Did you know in 2014 government IPAB begins
submitting proposals to cut Medicare?

Did you know in 2014 the government will impose
tax on nearly all private health insurance plans.

Did you know in 2017 all physicians must use pay-for-quality
programs where your doctors receive more for following government treatment
guides and are penalized if they do not?

Did you know that doctors are now combining into
large medical centers so they can comply with the complex mandates and stay in

Did you know Obamacare relies on ACO’s (remember
HMO’s?) to take care of us as our “medical home” where we can be tracked and
provided ONLY THAT CARE the government’s Independent Payment Advisory Board
determines should be given?

Any of these changes by themselves is detrimental to our healthcare and in combination will destroy America’s healthcare…the finest in the world.  Notice everyone wants to come here for their care.

PPACA (Obamacare) will take away access to healthcare with rationing by waiting.

Just having insurance does no good, if there are no providers because they have been driven out of business by Obamacare.  Americans will be begging for any medical care and this administration would use that crisis to provide government chosen and government trained medicasl staff.
Every facet of your healthcare: Doctor, hospital, dialysis, stents…

              Government Decided and Government Provided.


The Language and the Look of Obamacare

Any new situation requires learning and understanding and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act  (PPACA) calls for a class in terminology and structure.

The new vocabulary includes, but is not limited to:

ACO’s:  AccountableCare Organizations will be the government’s preferred and encouraged provider of Senior healthcare.  Picture a combination of an HMO and Department of Motor Vehicles…take a number, take a seat, and hope to be called before they close for lunch and all federal and state holidays.

CER: Comparative Effectiveness Research, funded by 1.1 billion inserted in the first stimulus bill, will determine which treatments and medications are the most effective.  Everyone agrees that knowing which treatments have good results is a good thing. Who will use that information and to what ends is the issue.

Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius
and Dr. Donald Berwick, administrator of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS) will have primary responsibility for implementing Medicare
changes.  The law says changes are not to be based on cost alone, but the law also does not prevent the use of the information to determine care and reimbursement.  Say what?

Confusion abounds and interpretation will be dictated by the bureaucrats, not by the needs of a unique patient with unique needs conferring with the doctor who knows their case well.

IPAB: IndependentPayment Advisory Board of 15 members appointed by the President.  They are not elected and their decisions cannot be appealed.  The board will be in charge of keeping Medicare costs within preset bounds.  The board is not allowed to ration care, increase premiums or reduce coverage. So in order to cut Medicare costs they will reduce payments to providers.

By the end of the decade a doctor will be paid less to see a Medicare patient than to see one on Medicaid. Doctors, hospitals, clinics, etc. are already stretched to treat Medicare  patients and the CBO has predicted that 17% of current hospitals will
go out of business.

An internet search on any of this new vocabulary provides further concerns.  Just don’t read it too close to your bedtime.


Telling Healthcare Like It Is

Healthcare, as we know it, is going, going and will soon be gone.

Your husband needs bypass surgery but three of the four surgeons near him refuse Medicare patients so he will go on a waiting list.

Your wife is recovering from a broken hip but no home healthcare is provided to help her transition back to functioning independently.

You are battling heartburn and must wait 3-7 weeks to see a gastroenterologist.

A pediatric well care appointment for your grandson involves a 24 day wait.

The PPACA, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, has caused some of these scenarios already.  The worst of the provisions of PPACA (Obamacare) law are written to be implemented only after the next Presidential election. Then we will have less availability,higher costs and fewer treatments compared to the  medical care we now receive.

We can look at healthcare in the UK, Germany and Canada to know that less innovation, less availability and decreased quality of care is ahead for us.  Massachusett’s
healthcare reform, started in 2006, contains almost all of the major provisions
of PPACA (Obamacare) and the demand for healthcare there has soared as have the
costs…with hugely increased waits for basic care.

These may be unintended consequences from well meaning politicians but overwhelming evidence, wherever this type of healthcare is done, demonstrates the damage PPACA (Obamacare) will accomplish.

Learn what is in Obamacare, how to question your politicians and what is in the Ryan alternative to Obamacare so you can help to preserve America’s healthcare. Read more healthcare alerts to come here at www.912SuperSeniors.org

If Obamacare is implemented, by the time your 2 year old granddaughter celebrates her 10th birthday America’s healthcare system will be as inefficient, unresponsive and
impersonal as the IRS, Amtrak, Fannie and Freddie. All are examples of massive government control doing what it does worst.




The COLA Project: Groceries. Seniors stepping up to help.

On his show on Monday, Nov 15, Glenn Beck spoke about what is happening with the inflation of the cost of America’s food. Glenn asked 912SuperSeniors.org and AsAMom.org to help gather data on the increasing grocery prices around the country.

No sooner had the request been spoken than Seniors began signing up by the dozens on this site to gather the data needed.

Your generous offer of time and attention to this project is an inspiration to all of us. We know you have many demands on your time. Seniors still wanting to volunteer can click on the grocery bag in the right column here or click on the “COLA Project” tab at the top of this page.

The results of the survey of grocery prices will be posted on this web site and on others as evidence of the true changes in the cost of living. By recording the facts, as witnessed and experienced by Americans around the nation, you will give seniors a stronger voice in discussions of this country’s economic health.

Thank you 912 Super Seniors.

You Will Be Making the News

This part of our website is reserved for news of the development of 912 Super Seniors groups.

Your determination and your actions will provide this news. Dozens of you have received our welcome and information emails in response to your interest in founding a new group. We are dedicated to providing whatever support and connections you need along the way.


Founding a new group is a challenge and an exciting adventure. On his Oct.11 show, Glenn Beck asked, “Who here is doing something you never thought you would do? Something that has pushed you outside of your comfort zone…”

When Barbara Samuells, one of our founders, answered Glenn, she was speaking from her heart. The threats proposed almost daily to our freedom of choice and our freedom to prosper compelled her to step outside of anything she had ever done to help create the 912 Super Seniors.

When Glenn asserted that our Seniors have the knowledge and the experience so desperately needed by our country, and told Seniors, “Reach out to Barbara! Reach out to each other! ” thousands of you came to the website and signed up for the newsletter.

And then, in your emails you have volunteered expertise and information and determination. You have offered to be founders of new groups, to join groups, to educate children and help others to educate as well.

“Your country is on fire. America needs you.“ was Glenn Beck’s earnest appeal to us Seniors. Joining in the 912 Super Seniors may be the right way for you to answer that plea. Whether by helping to found a new group, joining a group, or using your own “Power of One” it is up to you. Listen to that voice inside you saying that you must do something. Then step outside of your comfort zone and make a start.

Through this website, newsletters and emails, you have great support and encouragement. Seniors in America have worked and fought and endured much in our lives and hope for a secure and satisfying retirement. Still, we are determined, as is the Senior who wrote to us, “I used to just sit back and enjoy this great country. Now I want to do the things required so my grandchildren and their grandchildren can also enjoy this great county. God bless all of you who help the 912. It is our country!”
