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.
