Republicans Take Aim at AARP

This article in The Wall Street Journal blog discusses how Republicans are taking aim at AARP by saying that they want an overhaul because its business arm would benefit from legislation in both the House and the Senate. Republicans mentioned in a recent hearing that support for the proposed cuts would lead to benefit cuts for seniors.

AARP membership has both fallen and risen in the past year so it is hard to see if more people are being turned away or drawn to it over this period.
