Letter: Your tax dollars: AARP

One reason American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is such a strong advocate of big government (socialism) is that AARP has received more than $1 billion from the federal government (the taxpayer).

AARP received $18 million from President Obama's stimulus spending bill. In all, AARP receives nearly $100 million a year in grants from the federal government (meaning you, the taxpayer).

AARP is an aggressive proponent of the radical homosexual agenda, which includes gay marriages and homosexual couples adopting children. It has formed a close partnership with America's most radical gay activist organizations to promote what it calls gay sensitivity training, which is more like re-education camp.

Sites to see included links to National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Human Rights Campaign, PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), SAGE (Senior Action in a Gay Environment) and LGAIN (Lesbians and Gay Aging Issues Network).

AARP hosted a gay pride event in New York and regularly features gay pride events in its online calendars.

Why would AARP spend tens of millions of dollars promoting Obamacare when Obamacare calls for cutting $500 billion from Medicare, including $150 billion from Medicare Advantage plans? Here's why. The Congressional Budget Office says Obamacare would cause millions of seniors to lose Medicare Advantage coverage, which would produce tens of millions of dollars (probably hundreds of millions of dollars) in additional profits to AARP because seniors would be forced to buy supplemental Medigap plans sold by AARP.

AARP has revealed itself not to be a seniors advocate organization at all, but instead is a far left political lobby (masquerading as a senior advocate) that is profiting by hurting seniors.
