Gokhale: “AARP Misleads Elderly About Social Security's Fiscal Health”

Over at Investors Business Daily, Jagadeesh Gokhale of the Cato Institute takes AARP to task for their statements on Social Security reform.

“The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is perhaps the most powerful lobbying organization in the U.S. Its Policy Council promotes national fiscal policies that protect its members' interests.”

“But the Council cites half-truths, uses ambiguous language, and omits key details about the programs and policies it discusses — especially on Social Security — in its communications with those members.”
