    Bad news for the corporate lobbyists and their lapdogs......

    Washington (CNN) -- The AARP will endorse the House Democratic leadership's bill to overhaul health care, according to a Democratic source with direct knowledge of the plan.

    The move comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi oversees final changes to the $1 trillion-plus health care bill, which is likely set to come to a final vote Saturday.

    The AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan group that advocates for people 50 and older.

    I think they jumped the gun on the AARP endorsement once before - I'll wait and see.

    No, AARP isn't a corporate lobbyist.

    AARP is a nonprofit.

    Are you really this stupid?

    AARP is a pass-thru for insurance products with the AARP brand, and receives jillions of dollars in royalties for those products, you blithering idiot.

    Is that the AARP whose members are cancelling their memberships because they disapprove of the AARP's sucking up to the Obamanation?

    A lot of people already know that AARP is little more than a leftist corporate lobbying group....This isn't going to help them acquire more members.
