AARP, ALEC & Social Security

AARP was not on the list of organizations that supported the Bernie Sanders Social Security Expansion Bill. BTW none of them had joined ALEC (covertly) as a “partner” & provided ALEC monetary support (contrary to the wishes of almost all of the AARP membership). This is a sign that the people who made those decisions are carrying out the ALEC agenda (privatization) which is openly hostile to Social Security/Medicare. They repeat Cato Institute/Heritage Foundation talking points about “saving” & impending “bankruptcy”. Social Security has nothing to do w/the deficit & is not going bankrupt. It has been over “50 yrs since the last major expansions of Social Security/Medicare” (Nancy Altman) & “the major factor behind the modest projected funding shortfall is wage inequality” (Nancy Altman). For accurate Social Security info (et al) from someone who is 2nd generation from the architects who designed & created of Social Security:
