Glenn Kessler posted a critique of our new ad on the Washington Post website today, saying that "it turns out this stuff adds up to peanuts in the context of a $3.7 trillion federal budget." Yes - AARP is not really suggesting that cutting pickle technology would solve the country's budget woes. The point was to get people talking - and use a little humor to do it. There are billions of dollars in cuts that should be considered before Congress considers cutting people's hard-earned Medicare and Social Security benefits.
