    They put their insurance interests ahead of their members' interest, so I'm not sanguine about them using their clout on Social Security.

      on drugs, but now that the donut hole is going to be closed and because of their very strong stand on Social Security, I have finally signed up.

      Sure, they could be playing me for a fool, but I don't think so in regards to the one issue that is the most important for their membership.  Their newsletters always give a good explanation of the non-existant SS crisis and the AARP position.  Look, someone has to fight for Social Security and right now, very few are.  Even the White House seems to want to cut benefits for reasons that don't make sense unless it is to once again give in to big money interests.
