Tens of thousands quit AARP

The wisdom of the elderly:

"CBS News has learned that up to 60,000 people have cancelled their AARP membership since July 1 angered over the group's position on health care. ... Many are switching to the American Seniors Association, a group that calls itself the conservative alternative."

....former AARP member Elaine Guardani voicing her suspicions: "I feel that they’re supporting it through the back door and telling their members that they’re not through the front door."


Get this. THIS is how AARP reacts: "AARP says for a group with 40 million members that adds hundreds of thousands each month, losing 60 thousand is just a drop in the bucket."

I say we show them a flood in the bucket. Please pass this on and encourage any and all seniors you know to cancel their AARP membership and join the American Seniors Association.
