AARP Gets Duped By ALEC

August 6, 2016

Revealed: AARP Is Funding ALEC

If you are a member of AARP, formerly the American Association of Retired Persons, you should be outraged that your organization has joined The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). ALEC is a right wing special interest group that supports privatizing Social Security, curbing defined benefit pensions, undermining Medicare, ending restrictions on price gouging by big drug companies and destroying the economy with a balanced budget amendment. ALEC’s positions oppose the interests not only of retirees but also of all other regular Americans and support the interests of the super rich. Your AARP has been juked, duped and snookered. Retirees and members of AARP, please speak out and defend your interests. Regular Americans, please be aware that ALEC exists and is opposed your best interests.
