When Obama claim's, "the AARP is onboard" with his healthcare reform initiative, who exactly is onboard? Is it the president of the AARP? Is it AARP management or the Board of Directors?
I have trouble understanding how an organization with so many diverse members can officially endorse a political position or policy without making a real effort to understand the will of its members. The same sort of dynamic seems to be at play in large union organizations.
I agree. Shame on AARP for announcing that they are supporting a political position without asking the members who support AARP. This is not healthcare reform. This is insurance reform. The United States government should not get into the business of healthcare insurance any further than they have with M-Care & M-Caid because they aren't doing a very good job at managing that.
When our AARP membership comes up for renewal perhaps we'll vote with our checkbook and refuse to renew, and if enough of us did that, the management of AARP would get the message...you forgot to ask those who you work for.
