These right wing extremists in congress have made SS and Medicare their target for years and have gone into overdrive sense they took over the House. Maybe AARP should put that bit of truth in their ads instead of dancing and dodging the real villains of Seniors. AARP makes money off Seniors yet they won't target congressmen who want to hurt them.

Top Republican Blasts Obama Budget As ‘Shocking Attack On Seniors’

Remember those warnings about how instead of welcoming President Obama’s adoption of Chained CPI, Republicans would continue to deny him a budget deal and attack him for proposing to cut Social Security?

Well Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR)— who also happens to be chairman of the House GOP’s re-election committee — just showed how it’s done, saying Obama’s budget “lays out a shocking attack on seniors.”
“I’ll tell you when you’re going after seniors the way he’s already done on Obamacare, taken $700 billion out of Medicare to put into Obamacare and now coming back at seniors again, I think you’re crossing that line very quickly here in terms of denying access to seniors for health care in districts like mine certainly and around the country,” he said on CNN Wednesday afternoon.

Everyone thank AARP for the cuts to Medicare and their support for obamacare. AARP is making billions in 'supplemental' insurance sales while trying to convince you they really do care.
