The AARP is at it again

You've probably seen the television ad by the AARP accusing Congress of funding a treadmill for shrimp while cutting Medicare. Even Social Security.

Well, it seems the ad is a little loose with the facts. The shrimp treadmill was funded by the National Science Foundation—an agency in the Executive branch—and not by Congress.

It's ironic that the very people that accuse the Republicans of scaring Seniors engage in that very activity.

I wish we had leaders with the guts to stand up to them.

An email to our Congressman expressing support would do wonders.
