Come on seniors. You are and have been under attack for a long time now. I've warned you about it:
Now we have the AARP once again blatantly selling you out completely. They have now dropped their opposition to any cuts to Social Security as seen here.
They have sold you out on Medicare already not opposing and even endorsing Obama's cutting of 500 billion dollars from Medicare in the Healthcare Reform known as "Obamacare". Do you know why they supported cuts to Medicare?
Because they are an INSURANCE COMPANY and they don't give a damn about you, only your money. The cuts to Medicare mean that you will need more supplemental insurance to bridge the gap and they "just happen to" sell such things.
Now please answer this question. You actually have to PAY to belong to this organization right? Now please answer this question. WHY?
I am going to go out on a limb here and make a prediction that AARP will soon have, if they do not already have, some kind of supplemental income plan that they will want to SELL TO YOU because you will need it after they cut your Social Security benefits.
Sadly we cannot have much affect on politics in this country because corporations and insurance companies like AARP pay off the politicians. But you can have a great impact on THEIR influence by dropping out of the AARP and stop paying them money to sell you stuff and sell you out.
