TELL AARP: Be A Leader. Defend Social Security, Don't Hobnob With Its Enemies

We need to speak out to make sure AARP, the powerful lobbying group that claims to represent 40 million older Americans, doesn't sell us out by supporting cuts to Social Security.

According to a recent story in The Huffington Post, AARP's CEO is convening a small group of Washington insiders to discuss the future of Social Security. This closed meeting will be heavily stacked with "powerful Washington establishment figures who are on record favoring cuts to Social Security and Medicare."

Tell AARP: Listen to your members, not to the lobbyists and other special interests representing the 1 percent.

Dear AARP,

We urge you to:

• Lead the fight for Social Security
• Listen to your members, not to the lobbyists and other special interests representing the 1 percent.
• Demand an across-the-board increase in Social Security benefits.
• Demand that Social Security cost-of-living adjustments for seniors and people with disabilities take into account the high health care costs they face.
• Be a leader; don’t pander to the insiders.

The wealthiest nation in the world can certainly afford a decent retirement for those who have contributed to building this nation throughout their lives.
