About Generation America
Generation America was created with a sense of urgency. As we enter this new age there are troubling signs that our Government is spending our hard earned tax dollars at an unheard of rate. They are trying to pass laws that could severely affect our health care and they are looking at huge tax increases in carbon taxes, VAT taxes and others. These events can create havoc in the markets and threaten the financial security of the over 50 generation. These policies are very damaging to those of us on fixed incomes.
At the same time, our government is taking over businesses and attempting to nationalize our health care system. They are creating huge, cumbersome bureaucracies to run our lives.
As we have throughout our lives, we made a decision to act--to do something to ensure that we were heard. From this decision, Generation America was born.
Generation America (Gen-A) is a dynamic member-based organization for the over-50 generation. We believe in our natural right to freedom over our own lives, liberty, and property. We also share a serious thirst for life and the unlimited human potential. We believe in the Free Market and the American Dream.
Generation America is comprised of four key components:
* Advocacy: We are the voice for those who have earned it. Generation America's 501 c 4 corporation has spearheaded a mission to speak out in support of individual liberty and freedom for all Americans. Our team will work tirelessly to communicate our ideals and to fight for free-market solutions rather than government intervention.
* Member Services: Generation America is focused and committed to our members. Our primary goal is to bring added value through the best services and savings to our members. Over time as we grow we hope to create an incredible array of exciting services for our members benefit.
* Enrichment: Generation America's Enrichment team works around the clock to bring a variety of unique enrichment programs that speak to our members' values and beliefs, enhance their quality of life, and foster their sense of community.
* Charity: We believe that charity is a benefit of success. We also believe in charitable action that is member inspired and member driven. Our members play an integral role in where that money goes. Generation America's 501 c 3 corporation will not build an endowment but, with member guidance, will put this money to good use by dispersing our charitable funds on a regular basis.
Generation America is focused and determined to realize the full potential of our organization and we are excited about the community we are building. Our ultimate vision is that of an online community that extends and enhances many aspects of our lives.
Let's live life to the fullest. Please join Generation America today.
I despise AARP. I got my membership card in the mail last month-never mind I didn't join, they sent me one anyway! By the way-I'm ONLY 38!!!!

I am interested in learning more about Generation America. I am currently a member of AARP. Politically, I have never agreed with AARP - extreme left wing. But let's face it, as a senior over 65, I need a strong secure market for insurance. I have my medi-gap and my Delta dental medicare plan. I have already moved my Medicare plan-D out of Medicare and can probably move my medi-gap medicare supplemental, but what about Delta dental. Is the dental insurance available sufficient?

I would like to know the month by month membership numbers since the inception of the organization.

I don't believe it is possible for me in NY to take Generation America in place of AARP, as it must be one of the approved Medicare providers, and in the "Medicare and You", book that they send each year, they give the providers allowed in our state by Medicare. That was one of my pet peeves, that Medicare dictates who we can have as a Medicare Advantage provider. If that were not the case, many would have never stayed with AARP. If I am incorrect, please email me with the correct information. I am a senior and currently have the Medicare Advantage plan E. Thanks

I am not a arp member and do think they try to influence your way of thinking verses just giving the facts and letting you decide.
