Cancelled our Membership

by Steve Ray on August 6, 2009

I wrote AARP and called them:

When we turned 50 Janet and I joined AARP (American Association of Retired Persons). Because of their support for Obama and his socialist, nationalized Obamacare, I just called and cancelled our memberships and told them why.

Now I am scralling big black X’s on our cards and mailing them back with a letter to explain why they are traitors and I will no longer support them — in fact, I will fight them.

I shall do the same. I just received their monthly magazine in the mail. What a waste!

AARP has always been leftist. There’s another one that I’ve always considered a better idea: http://www.60plus.org/default.asp

Since I’m not 60 yet, I haven’t signed up ;)

I’ve always thought AARP was “fishy”

Hi steve, I just caught this interview with the V.P. of AARP and thought you might be interested.

Greetings! My husband and I cancelled our AARP membership some years ago (we’ve been eligible for 17 years…) This was prompted by reading the magazine and newsletter over a period of time and finding positions with which we did not agree. What finally decided us was an item in the magazine stating that it’s perfectly OK for seniors to live together without marriage if they would lose retirement benefits by marrying. Not only that, AARP is supposed to be an advocacy organization for seniors, yet they are selling more and more insurance of different types. Conflict of interest?
