Me and my bro protesting ALEC in Chicago.
When I turned fifty – that was eighteen years ago – I remember getting my unsolicited AARP membership card in the mail. I recall thinking it was funny. A rite of passage. Me? AARP?
It is true that aside from a brief two years when we bought AARP’s auto road side assistance plan, we have never viewed the organization as much more than an insurance vendor.
Yet they claim to represent 37 million seniors as members.
Can you represent the interests of seniors and be a member of a leading pro-corporate lobbying organization as the same time.
If you are a member of AARP, you may want to let them know that they can’t represent you and ALEC at the same time.
