The AARP launched a new defence of entitlements with this national ad (via Morning Money):
“My grocery bill isn’t wasteful spending. … My heart medication isn’t some political game. …Our retirement isn’t a simple budget line item. … I worked hard. … I paid into my Medicare … And I earned my Social Security… Now, instead of cutting waste and loopholes, Washington wants to cut our benefits? … That wasn’t the agreement. .. Join the members of AARP and tell Washington: Stop cuts to our Medicare and Social Security benefits.”
