AARP is a liberal advocacy group pretending otherwise.
Consider this advertisement. The people in the ad are all over age 55. Not one proposal to reform Social Security or Medicare has ever applied to them.
None. Zero. Nada.
AARP knows this, but means to deceive its members otherwise.
Another ugly truth is that, no, seniors have not paid for their Medicare. The average senior uses $40,000 more than they contributed over their working lives.
The difference must come out of someone’s pocket — their kids and grandkids.
Is AARP about greedy self interest and generational theft?
Furthermore, the idea that trimming government waste can make up for the Medicare deficit is patently false. And AARP knows that, too.
