AARP, the non-profit seniors organization that exists to promote the financial security, pensions and healthcare of those over 50, is secretly funding SINCE 2014, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), an organization whose bills have acted against the interests of ordinary Americans, including retirees and their families. ALEC exists to help its corporate funders advance their lobbying agenda through pushing bills that it peddles as national “model” legislation.  Its proposals  include: privatizing Social Security, gutting pension plans, and turning Medicare over to insurance companies. ALEC also supports laws that would make prescription drug prices even higher - no surprise since giant pharmaceutical corporations are one of ALEC's biggest donors. This page includes links to petitions you can sign to tell AARP how YOU feel about this betrayal.
