AARP a "special interest group" according to Spicer..............

Eh..whatever Sean. They care about the SURVIVAL of seniors and that each and everyone who needs AFFORDABLE healthcare receives it. Your Paul Ryan health care plan will insure countless will DIE. Go ahead and call AARP special interest,it makes you look like a bigger FOOL than you are now.


"We would love to have every group on board," Spicer said at his Wednesday press briefing when asked about opposition from groups like AARP and the AMA. "This isn't about trying to figure out how many special interests in Washington we can get paid off. It's about making sure that patients get the best deal."

1. Okay, they are within a certain context

but, those older folks do tend to vote and AARP does sorta represent their viewpoints on many issues, so paying attention to the words of AARP and the Alliance of Retired Americans might just be worth a moment or two.

2. "social security is the third rail of american politics"

That phrase was coined because seniors vote. And they tend to vote to support themselves. That means social security and medicare and, as it turns out, obamacare.
