Senator John McCain is reportedly elderly Americans to chop up their AARP membership cards and mail them to the organization which he claims is betraying them by supporting healthcare reform. “Citing AARP’s past opposition to proposed cuts in Medicare, McCain expressed dismay Thursday that the senior group has suddenly changed its position to support $460 billion in cuts to the program proposed by Democrats to help pay for health care legislation. ‘Shame on AARP,’ McCain, said Thursday on the Senate floor. ‘Take your AARP card, cut it in half and send it back. They’ve betrayed you.’ ‘If we’re talking about Medicare cuts alone as a way of financing health reform, we would fight that with all of our strength,’ he added. ‘We’ve gone as far as we can down that road.’ Democrats throughout Thursday’s Senate debate used AARP’s endorsement of their bill to blunt Republican charges that they are gutting Medicare. AARP rode to the rescue of Democrats on Wednesday, announcing its support for billions in Medicare cuts to help fund the legislation.”
