  • American Association of Retired Persons
  • Major Goals

- repeal ObamaCare (don’t trust the gov’t to reform it and run it)

- cut taxes (lower taxes on the elderly, particularly those without jobs)

- balance the budget (conservative habits of the elderly, have led them to be opposed to the government spending money it doesn’t have… especially on inferior government programs [ObamaCare])

- create jobs (despite AARP name, many members still work, and do to the state of the economy, are having trouble finding jobs)

- maintain social security (gov’t trying to raise retirement age to 69, and cut SS benefits; AARP is against it… obviously)
