AARP: Fighting for Older Americans 2010 Advocacy Agenda

For 50 years, AARP has had one mission: making life better for older Americans. AARP was created after its founder discovered a retired teacher, who was in poor health, living in a chicken coop, with barely enough money to live on and unable to afford medical care. Since then, AARP has been fighting for the health and retirement security of older Americans, and this year we will continue our fight to: protect Medicare and Social Security; stop insurance companies from denying care; hold Wall Street accountable; help all Americans save for retirement; and ensure people can get the services they need to remain living independently in their homes and their communities.

In 2010, AARP will be fighting to help older Americans get the health care they need, to give older Americans the tools they need to remain financially stable and to make communities more livable for people of all generations.
