AARP+OBAMA=OBAMACARE

Do not renew membership to AARP and request a refund if there is any balance.

AARP makes billions off of the elderly.

Rip up any of the mailings you receive. Don't even bother to read them.

You are absolutely correct about AARP. It is a phoney liberal run insurance company that preys on the fears of the elderly. Long before this warmonger tax happy so called president got 'elected' I had the pleasure of explaining to many people in their 50's, 60's and older that what AARP was offering was to take your money and in return get a rag magazine subscription. There are other legit organizations that offer way more than AARP and do not have a political agenda. Use the post paid return envelope to tell these liberal 'rats' to remove your name from their mail list and email them also. AARP/ACORN, same thing.

Too bad Barry Rand wasn't ask his personal income and bonus for the years he's been CEO, when he testified this week? Have you ever received an offer for auto insurance? The return envelope is addressed to AARP. If AARP's not involved in the sales, the envelope would be addressed to the insurance company. AARP's got dirty hands.

Just another Rethuglican witch hunt.

Going after all Democratic support groups like unions, and AARP.

Well, seniors know Rethuglican casino capitalists want that money pile to gamble with, and know their Social Security is at risk from theft when Rethuglicans are in control.

Time to boot them, recall the Chancellor governors in Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Arizona, and more.

Both AARP and GE are involved with the odummy cronie-capitalism. As far as I can see, AARP should have its tax exempt status revoked.

Here we go again......

1st the president...the the dems.......Now the repubs.

Is this really what they think is the most important thing the country needs right now........

if they were soooo concerned about seniors they would be working on the age discrimiation of older workers that were laid off because of the "Great Recession" over 2 years ago and are now 60 62 64 years olds and no hiring in sight for them.

thrown off unemployment.....

too young for Social Security (without severe pentalites for early retirement)

quickly running out of lifetime of savings (if not already pennyless)

already lost their home, cars, retirement.....

and, no one in government gives a $hit about what will be the consequences of a million or so older people being added to the homeless and destitute group.....

the party politics and political payback fighting in america has got to be stopped by the citizens.....

***the REAL unemployment rate is still over 15%***

americans have every moral and human right to resist and rebel against this government.....

AARP is a large for profit insurance company, it should be taxed. Time the churches start paying their share as well.

I would guess it is someone like Snooki (begins with the letter "S") and/or Santa Claus (also begins with the letter "S") and/or perhaps Snoopy (also begins with the letter "S")!
