New AARP Ad Protecting Entitlements

AARP is premiering another national TV ad campaign today, reminding lawmakers that cutting Medicare and Social Security risks angering 50 million seniors. And more than 400 AARP volunteers and staffers plan to hit the Hill today to re-enforce thatmessage. 

Here's the ad's script:

I'm not a number. I'm not a line item on a budget. And I'm definitely not a pushover. But I am a voter.

So Washington, before you even think about cutting my Medicare and Social Security benefits, here's a number you should remember:

50 million. We are 50 million seniors who earned our benefits. And you will be hearing from us today and on election day.

Join the fight Tell Congress: Cut waste and loopholes, not our benefits.
