Leftist Organization AARP Loses 60,000 Members Over Obamacare
60,000 Americans have cancelled their AARP memberships over the leftist organization’s support of Obamacare.
Wow. That’s a lot of oldsters who are going to have to be Trotsky ice-picked by the death panels for their counter-revolutionary activities. Obviously the AARP is about to crumble just like the Berlin Wall. Or maybe not.
The membership loss suggests dissatisfaction on the part of AARP members at a time when many senior citizens are concerned about proposed cuts to Medicare providers to help pay for making health care available for all. But spokesman Drew Nannis said it wasn’t unusual for the powerful, 40 million-strong senior citizens’ lobby to shed members in droves when it’s advocating on a controversial issue.
The approximately 60,000 number represents members who specifically cited AARP’s stance on the health overhaul debate in canceling their membership between July 1 and mid-August, Nannis said. He said that on average AARP loses some 300,000 members a month, but he couldn’t say how many more members had quit for other reasons in that time period.
He said AARP gained some 400,000 new members during the same period and that 1.5 million members renewed their membership.
The Revolution will not be televised. On the other hand, Murder She Wrote and Golden Girls will be seen at their regular times. Oh that Estelle Getty, she’s such a stitch…
