What Is the American Seniors Association?

By    |   Tuesday, 01 September 2015 05:01 PM

The American Seniors Association bills itself as "the new voice for America's seniors," and aspires to serve as a conservative voice on pressing issues for the older generation.

"We believe that America's seniors deserve respect, admiration, and support for the contributions they made throughout their lives building families and enhancing the quality of American life," the description reads on the American Seniors website. "If you believe in individual liberty and the importance of having choices in your life, then you are an ‘American Senior.'"

Membership is $15 per year and includes a spouse at no additional fee. There is no minimum age requirement because the organization states that "everyone will be a senior at some point."

As such, American Seniors tailors benefits to individual needs. Like similar groups, members pay reduced fees for dental and eye care, and receive discounts on many goods and services.

Unlike the more well-known AARP, American Seniors is politically active, and advocates for conservative issues.

"Along with our mission to promote conservative values and defend the American way of life and our Constitution, we strive to provide the best benefits and discounts to our members without compromise," the organization's website says. "We believe that you deserve choices when selecting who best represents your interests in Washington, D.C.; and we also believe you deserve choices when selecting benefits that help you live a healthier and wealthier life."

American Seniors lists their five "foundations" as: rebuilding national values of respect for the nation's seniors; reforming Social Security; reforming Medicare; reforming the tax code; and controlling government spending.

Among the battles waged, the organization rallied against cuts to Social Security and any perceived attempts by President Barack Obama to cut Medicare and the Medicare Advantage program. The group promises to never support a president or congress that seeks to cut benefits for seniors.

The AARP, or American Association of Retired Persons, lost between 50,000 and 60,000 members during one summer stretch in 2009 because of its support of Affordable Care Act, according to The New York Times. Many of those people joined American Seniors.
