Setting the Record Straight

Our own Drew Nannis took to the pages of the Washington Examiner to respond to an editorial the Examiner ran earlier this week.

"The truth is, and especially in Washington, you just can't please all of the people all of the time. And yes, this is a variation on a phrase often attributed to Republican President Abraham Lincoln, so perhaps AARP will be accused of siding with a particular political party (although Tapscott referred to us as "liberal") but that's just the way it is in this town. Unfortunately, many people behind the deceptive machines who are working to stop health care reform are trying to vary this memorable phrase even further, working around the clock to "fool all of the people all of the time". They are stopping at nothing to spread myths about health care reform and employ scare tactics to deceive the masses."

Drew does a great job of putting AARP's role in the health care reform debate in context. Read the whole thing.
