"Whatever the outcome of President Bush's push for personal accounts in Social Security, one of its effects deserves to be damage to whatever credibility AARP had left as a pragmatic and non-partisan organization..."

AARP "...sit[s] across the table from its interlocutors at the White House and pretend[s] to be sincere about its desire for compromise. And it's almost enough to make us long for an intrepid antitrust lawyer to take on the senior lobby. One thing's for sure: We're never going to have a reasonable debate about policies for an aging society as long as AARP has an effective monopoly on that role."
