No fan of AARP but are Republican's really eager to take on this organization?

Republicans will get no votes from Hispanics, Muslim Americans, African Americans, teachers, union members and now senior citizens.

Sounds like a winning strategy.

If the new healthcare plan is such a winner, why is AARP trying to get a waiver from the tax that pays for it? On top of that, nonprofits are not supposed to be political.

I misss the good old days when Slick Willie was in the White House and the IRS was his (and Hillary's too) personal attack dog on everyone who disagreed with them.

Another huge corporate giant dodging paying their fair share. Wish I had a list of loopholes to get out of paying the thieving IRS.

Fully investigate the wrongwing fascist groups such as the Mackinac Center, The Heritage foundation, The Cato Institute, and other groups that are actively destroying this once great nation. Watch Greenwald's The Koch Brothers Exposed.

Ah yes, the ones that disagree with The Chosen and his minions. Silly me. Thought this story was about the AARP. Way to stay on subject.

AARP was the Republicans' darling in 2003 when they helped the Republicans give the store away to the drug companies through Medicare Part D.

And after that a probe of the IRS which will hopefully lead to its demise.

Is the high cost of Obamacare hurting your organization?

Do you think you should be exempt from the law that ordinary citizens have to obey?

Are you a big corporation that doesn't want to obey the law?

Are you a union that supported the passage of Obamacare, and now you want an exemption from the law that you expect everyone else to follow?

Do you want to join this exclusive list of organizations that have received special Obamacare waivers exempting them from the high cost of Obamacare?

Then act now!

Call our toll free number to order your special Obamacare waiver today!

Hurry - supplies are limited!

So AARP members should not vote for Republicans next election? Baby Boomers should know this help spread this to all the baby boomers.

Hispanics are not dumb, they won't fall into the same trap as the blacks. Dems have been keeping blacks down for years for votes and money.

Because all those people are so stupid they have no opinions of their own, they'll just ask their fellow (Hispanics, Muslim Americans, African Americans, teachers, union members, senior citizens) what they think and that's what they'll think.

I Shred the eternal cards they send out. AARP is nothing more than a business and should be taxed as such.
