If you witnessed the awesomeness that was 25,000 AARP members descending upon Washington, DC last year for our annual member event...then you'll understand why I am super excited to head out to Vegas next week for this year's event!
Last week, we told you where AARP stands on the Social Security COLA issue - that is, encouraging leaders on the Hill to provide a $250 in emergency relief to the older Americans who are struggling in the economic climate. Yesterday, a story ran in U.S. News and World Report on the letter that CEO Barry Rand wrote to those leaders - check out the story here.
Yesterday, AARP CEO A. Barry Rand sent a letter to leaders on the Hill, encouraging them to provide $250 in emergency relief to millions of older Americans who are struggling in the current tough economic climate. AARP's support for this measure comes in response to the expected announcement that there will be no Social Security Cost of Live Adjustment (COLA) in 2010.
