AARP: Leave us out of it

Obama's new Medicare ad cites AARP studies on the Affordable Care Act and the Ryan budget. But the nonpartisan group wants to make sure no one interprets the spot as an endorsement. 

“The next president and Congress will decide the future of Medicare, and the candidates owe voters straight talk – not just 30-second ads – about what their plans will mean for today’s seniors and future retirees.

We were not aware of nor have any involvement with this campaign ad.  AARP is a nonpartisan organization and we do not endorse political candidates.  For the last 26 years, we've been providing voters with balanced information, without all the political jargon and spin, so they can make their own decisions on Election Day."
