Chuck Jarvis: Planet’s Largest Blowhard

USANext CEO Chuck Jarvis says he’s about to launch a campaign branding the AARP “the planet’s largest liberal lobbying organization.” If they’re just a liberal lobbying group, why was President Bush using their endorsement as the only justification for his Medicare bill less than six months ago?

On health care, my opponent has a history of opposing needed reforms. He voted against the Medicare bill, even though it was supported by the AARP and other seniors groups. He has voted 10 times against medical liability reform, and now his health care proposal calls for bigger, more intrusive government. Eight out of 10 people who get health care under his plan would be placed on a government program.
