Does AARP represent the Democratic Party or Seniors?

I just read how the Democrats have scored a big success as AARP is endorsing the Health Care Bill. If this is true, then this is the final straw for me. I am going to cancel my membership from this organization that is nothing but an extension of the Democratic Party. The Health Care Bill is one more step toward the Socialist state that the Obama administration and Democrats seem determined to implement. This is another $1.2 Trillion added to the debt. Part of the payment of this debt is to come out of Medicare that will of course effect all of us. The debt and higher taxes will then fall on our children, grandchildren and great grand children to service the debt. The annual cost of living increase on SS has been canceled by the Democrats. Where is the uproar from the AARP. You see the leadership of the AARP are big contributors to the Democratic Party and to Obama. The AARP obviously does not represent the interest of Seniors and puts their political affiliation with the Democrats infront of our interest. It does not matter if you are Republican, Democrat, liberal or conservative as we are all going to suffer equally while the AARP does nothing to represent us.

The TRUTH is one if the corporate heads donates HIS PRIVATE MONEY and some employees donate THEIR PRIVATE MONEY, anyone who calls that  donating your fees is pretty dumb. Got to wonder if you think you control what every Employee in every company you buy stuff from 😂  They DO pay lobbyists who work in many ways to get bills that help seniors, if that means helping democrats bills, then good! How any senior can be dumb enough to disagree with them doing what it takes to HELP us is beyond belief. AARP does amazing things for seniors, including offering THE  BEST  Medicare supplement for the lowest income people on SS, like me. they worked out the plan with United.  This plan is Different than non AARP, I spoke to two medicare specialist and reviewd at least 6 other plans. That alone is worth the fee. I’m not ignorant enough to think I have a right to dictate every companies employees PRIVATE use of their money. 
Apparently many people are from the comments 🙄 or they just assume every post they read is fact, without researching it. I researched  it and got the non biased facts.

Answer is AARP supports Seniors AND the Democratic Party because the Democrats support Seniors and the Republican Party has worked for 50 years to destroy Social Security AND Medicare and tRump has promised to finish the job if he's re-elected. All Republican Presidents since Ike have tried to do it, tRump is just the first one to admit it in public.

I and a lot of other people must have missed that meeting, I have never heard Trump talk against Social Security. He has always said people worked, paid it in and deserve it and he will always protect social security. The democrats want to give it to illegals along with free medical and education. My family worked their way through college and paid for it. My family kept jobs so they would have health coverage. I don't think our tax dollars should go to those who don't work and that includes everyone who rides the system.

It's truly unfortunate that some people watch the FOX Propaganda Network seven days a week and believe standing up for seniors is somehow the equivalent of being a Democrat.

 

At least we know the Trump Republican Party is trying to hurt/damage both Social Security and Medicare. One can never accuse the AARP of doing that.

How can anyone not see the destruction being done by the Democrats?  

 

From 19 years old I never expected SS to be around by the time I might need it.  So I made my own provisions.  For anyone who thinks that president Trump is the reason SS is failing is ignorant. 

I will not provide a dime to thos AARP organization until they stop supporting the evils that are being pronounced by the Democrats!

Thank you for standing up to the trash that is posted here supporting the Dem destruction! The negative comments directed towards Trump are unwarranted and a farce. My self and many of our friends now see that AARP needs to stay neutral and not support either side. This will clearly effect membership renewal considerations.

Some times the truth can hurt, but it is still the truth.

Sometimes people are disillusioned and cant see the truth. Look at the history of the dem party, it speaks negatively for its self.

You wrote about it but never gave facts to back up what you wrote. You took the typical Trump path. Lots of talk but nothing there.

I read and understand and you have not given us facts just what you call comments. Now try again.

Just because political comments may sway towards the right, moderate, or left, do not discontinue to think for yourself...even though not everyone may agree with you. 
But overall, AARP does try to be proactive and provide actual information for all Seniors, problem solving, plus advice for maintaining a good life. And there are other sites to participate in. 
How proactive can you be, while still maintaining a neutral stance...it’s a fine line sometimes.

When you were 19 years old you saw the Reb. doing all they could to stop SS, and that has contunted till today. You ere lucky that you could, but many could not. What you really did was create a provision to enhance your old age which was good but what you based it on was not true. By the way I did he same thing but based  mine on real facts.

Take you dime and give it to Dictator Trump so he can finish his path to be full Dictator if he is still in Office after this year. I will take my dime and give it to AARP so they can look out for all Senior Citizens which will intern mean that Dictator Trump  will be gone after this year, and be in the trash can of history.

I honestly don't know if they do or not, but I have read through enough comments here to know that joining AARP last year was obviously a mistake. I really don't see anything that I get from this membership that my military retirement affiliations don't already give me.

My reply................I see where several new posters were asking questions about AARP.
You can find a lot of information about AARP, the chief officers and their purpose on the internet. I just started by googling the CEO of AARP. You may be very surprised to see the huge salaries of some. I was.

As a fellow military retiree, your assessment is correct. Dump AARP. I found I can get the better  products and service from organizations like MOAA.

 

Plus, those military organizations support & fight for things I believe in whereas AARP is just a shill for the Democrats & select insurance companies.


In my state, the AARP ringleader is a former Clinton operative.

 

Under her watch, they openly campaigned for Dems and their agenda.
