It would seem that not only is Obamacare not healthy for Democrat political fortunes, but it doesn't seem to be too healthy for the AARP either.
CBS News has learned that up to 60,000 people have cancelled
their AARP memberships since July 1, angered over the group’s position
on health care.
Elaine Guardiani has been with AARP for 14 years, and said, "I’m extremely disappointed in AARP."
Retired nurse Dale Anderson has 12 years with AARP and said, "I don’t wanna be connected with AARP."
Many are switching to the American Seniors Association, a group that
calls itself the conservative alternative as CBS News Investigative
Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports.
Last week alone, they added more than 5,000 new members. Our camera was there Friday when the mail came.
Letters were filled with cut-up AARP cards.
"I think that probably the seniors are most upset with cuts in Medicare," said ASA President Stuart Barton.
