Tell AARP: End All Ties With ALEC Immediately!
AARP's stated mission is to represent the interests of retirees. That's why we were shocked and angered to learn that AARP has been secretly funding the right-wing, anti-retiree American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) since 2014.
ALEC's agenda includes many proposals that would be a nightmare for seniors, including privatizing Social Security, gutting pension plans, and turning Medicare over to insurance companies. ALEC also supports laws that would make prescription drug prices even higher — no surprise since giant pharmaceutical corporations are one of ALEC's biggest donors.
Join us in calling on AARP to end its financial support of ALEC and repudiate the group.
