AARP, along with other groups representing seniors’ interests, has drawn a hard line in the sand when it comes to Medicare cuts being considered in this tough economic time.
Their stance? Say “NO” to all Medicare and Medicaid cuts, as they don’t believe seniors can suffer from anymore cuts in benefits or increases in costs in either program. Although they also oppose any cuts to Social Security benefits, most of the media attention and spotlight has focused on Medicare and Medicaid in government deficit reduction talks. Lucky for seniors, the power of AARP gives it considerable influence in shaping a package to avert the tax increases and spending cuts set to begin next year, but there is still much negotiation required for all involved.
