Still a member of AARP? Maybe you missed the article in the Wall Street Journal that documented the close working relationship between AARP and the White House in passing ObamaCare. Here’s the recap.

In fact, on September 20, 2012 Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal wrote:
“Thanks to just-released emails from the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we now know that AARP worked through 2009-10 as an extension of a Democratic White House, toiling daily to pass a health bill that slashes $716 billion from Medicare, strips seniors of choice, and sets the stage for rationing. We know that despite AARP’s awareness that its seniors overwhelmingly opposed the bill, the‘nonpartisan membership organization’ chose to serve the president’s agenda.
The 71 pages of emails show an AARP management taking orders from the White House, scripting the president’s talking points, working to keep its board ‘in line’, and pledging a fealty to‘the cause.’ Seniors deserve to know all this, as AARP seeks to present itself as neutral in this presidential election.”

Why would the AARP sell out the members who did not want ObamaCare? Two reasons.
First, the AARP is run by far-left liberals. Like the mainstream media, ideology trumps business. They are dedicated to their politics, not their customers.
Second, they are making money from ObamaCare by selling fearful seniors supplemental insurance. So, it’s ideology first, money next, then members.
Nice people.
