AARP should be more sensitive to its retired members who are vulnerable to ALEC-supported legislative efforts to eliminate Social Security.

.

There is a concept, truth in advertising, that fundamentally opposes any organizations deliberate use of misleading or deceptive statements when promoting a brand. In fact, there are laws founded on the concept but they apply to organizations that sell or deliver products using false advertising or misleading and deceptive statements. Unfortunately, there are no laws preventing political advocacy groups from using misleading and deceptive statements when promoting their brand.

.

Most Americans may see the deception in conservative groups names like Americans for Prosperity. The Koch brothers outfit is not remotely interested in prosperity for all Americans, but to the uninformed it might appear the organization is working tirelessly for the betterment, and wealth, of all Americans when nothing could possibly be farther from the truth. It is the same with an advocacy organization with the term retired person or elderly or senior citizen in its name; one expects it would hew closely to the needs of retired Americans.

.

In the case of the AARP, formerly the American Association of Retired Persons, the organizations claim of advocacy for retired persons is not only a misleading and deceptive statement, it violates any iteration or interpretation of the term truth in advertising. Why? Because AARP is a proud sponsor of another organization uniquely dedicated to decimating Americas retired persons quality of life in their old age and retirement.

.

It was very recently revealed that AARP is a supporting member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the Koch brothers organization dedicated to, among many other things, destroying Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. It is also noteworthy that another Koch privatization-advocacy group and a sister organization of ALEC, the State Policy Network (SPN), is extremely active in abolishing pensions for public workers including police officers, school teachers, prison guards, city workers and firefighters. Suffice it to say that like their funding machine the Koch brothers, neither ALEC nor SPN will rest until Social Security and public retirement accounts are abolished and the concept of financial security in old age are a distant memory. It is why the revelation that AARP is a paying member of ALEC is beyond abominable and brands the phony retiree advocates as stunning hypocrites. Any one of the 37-plus million paying AARP members should be up in arms and outraged beyond comprehension.

.

Of course, AARP is not going to confess to its hypocrisy in supporting ALEC while claiming to lobby and advocate for seniors, Social Security, Medicare, and lower prescription drug costs. Instead, the retiree-supported non-profit is taking a page out of lying Republicans book and claimed it supports ALEC to get closer to ALEC legislators and attempt to determine how they are helping seniors.
