    nobody may want to acknowledge this but over 60,000 old pricks tore up and sent their AARP membership cards back-- me, i'm 55 and taking an early pension from SAG as an actor but i'll tell u what, the boomers are the ones that will make or break Obamas' Presidency-- and for now at least, he's lost them-- the bleeding is profuse-- anybody know how to stop it?-- Regards, probus

    I just signed up for like 3 years of AARP, and I aint happy with their backing of this reform crap. I am not beyond ripping up their card either. I wonder if they are listening?

    President Obama misspoke and did not intend to mislead the public when he said AARP had endorsed his health care legislation pending in Congress, the White House said Wednesday.

    Have you seen the AARP ads? With the waaaambulances and the "myth" breakers? They are backing the plan. Lying through their teeth they are.

    hell about 30,000 of those old bastards would have probably dropped dead by the end of the year any way.

    Both my wife and I cancelled our AARP membership. I didn't like the fact that AARP donated $9,000.00 to Obama's election coffers. I don't think that's a wise use of my dues. On top of it, I didn't like the tv ads concerning health care and their backing of it. Too liberal of an organization for me.

    Stop it? It's not going to stop. Obama will lose the election in 2012 and AARP will go the way of the dinosaur.

    Being opposed to health care insurance reform suggests support for the status quo. Support for the current system is incomprehensible, unless the supporter profits from the current system, or is opposed to reform because thay have been scared by the propaganda put forth by those who profit.
