AARP sells out seniors, favors Social Security changes

Common Dreams

Doug Henwood:

AARP has essentially become an insurance company. It opposed single-payer because it sells health insurance (though they’ll give you a lot of nonsensical policy justifications for their self-interested stance). I wouldn’t be surprised at all if it’s now looking to expand into the retirement annuity business. But if Social Security cuts go through, catfood might be a more promising line of business.

Henwood thinks AARP will favor small cuts for those near or in retirement and huge cuts for those coming later, most of whom don’t expect Social Security to provide much anyway.

“Hey dear, AARP is offering a low-cost line of nutritious food that both us and the cats can eat. Let’s dine tonight on Savory Salmon! Yum.”

The prostitution of American business continues.

    AARP HAS SOLD OUT THE SENIORS AGAIN.

    Watch as they and the Republican party steal the benefits that we seniors worked for years.
    First will be turning Medicare. over to the tender mercies of the Insurance Industry
    Second will be ending colas for social security. God know us old fart don’t really need to
    eat three meals a day.
    Third social security will be turned over to the bankers on wall street. Which will invest in
    junk bonds and other worthless instruments.

    Hell the democrats are just as bad.
    THEY THINK ALL US SENIORS ARE SHOVEL READY.
