Let's see. AARP fully supported Pelosi's obamacare and it's $500BILLION cuts to Medicare. My opinion is AARP sold seniors down the river for a buck.

Neither party is giving specifics about the changes they will attempt to, or, actually make to Soc. Sec. or Medicare and Medicaid. This money has been taken out of our pay during the course of our lifetimes. IT IS NOT THEIR MONEY TO TOUCH! These are not benefits, they are earned income. Any other nomenclature, which the media or politicians assigns to them is a falsehood. There is where the lie begins. The assumption is the gov't can regulate these things because they call it a tax. If the money is not there, then it is stolen money.That's corrupt stewardship. That same money conservatively invested over our life times would yield, on average,$600,000 per senior citizen. Any senior citizen, who does not stand up and fight against any changes, of a negative nature, to senior citizens should be ashamed of his or herself.
