Well, I disagree as there are many elements of AARP that do a lot for seniors. But they are so big and unwieldy they frequently don't know what they are doing. For instance, generally they tend to advocate for "liberal" policies that help seniors. So one of the funniest article on AARP is today: One might ask the question as to why just before the election they would send this memo out to employees about something that might or might not happen in 2018 regarding plans that wouldn't qualify as taxable anyway. But apparently nobody did ask.
