AARP Bulletin: Responsible Solutions To Medicare

Today we received our AARP Bulletin in the Mail. On the front page it said AARP is fighting for solutions to Medicare and Social Security. We have two things we would like AARP to take a stand on.
1. We paid into Social Security all of our working lives. It is a trust fund...not an entitlement. The politicians have robbed that trust fund and filled it with IOUs ....According to Dr. Ron Paul, we are receiving only half of what is due us each month, because they cheat on the cost of living figures . We ask that AARP Insist that the politicians return that money, or go to jail
2, The politicians should receive no better health care or retirement than our troops or social security benefits...President included, That would solve many problems.
