Q: What's next on the AARP advocacy agenda?
A: We base our advocacy agenda on what we learn from reaching out through our publications, website, call center, and member communications, as well as through polling and focus groups. Right now we're closely monitoring how health care reform is being implemented at the state and federal levels. Our advocacy priorities include strengthening Social Security and ensuring that Social Security benefits aren't cut to reduce the deficit, protecting Americans 50 and up from utility rate increases, lowering prescription-drug costs, making sure older Americans can find doctors to treat them, expanding job opportunities for older workers, and combating age discrimination.
