AARP loses members over health care stance - USATODAY.com
One of the largest voting blocs in the nation is doing a bit of early voting with their feet on GovernmentCare. They don't want it.About 60,000 senior citizens have quit AARP since July 1 due to the group's support for a health care overhaul, a spokesman for the organization said Monday.
The membership loss suggests dissatisfaction on the part of AARP members at a time when many senior citizens are concerned about proposed cuts to Medicare providers to help pay for making health care available for all. But spokesman Drew Nannis said it wasn't unusual for the powerful, 40 million-strong senior citizens' lobby to shed members in droves when it's advocating on a controversial issue.
This country is making one message loud and clear--these health care "reform" efforts are not what the people want.
So why is the majority party ignoring the people who elected them?
