AARP vs other seniors support organization

Somewhere I was reading about another organization for Seniors that sounded like it was doing a better job of supporting Seniors problems than AARP (which anymore looks like just an insurance broker). But now I can't remember what the name of it was, anyone know what one I'm talking about?

My membership in AARP is coming due soon and I may need to make a change.

Good info, I see that AMAC is for one thing that AARP is against.

I dropped AARP a few years ago when (I thought) they were telling me who to vote for or against and not providing information so I could make my own decision.

I decided long ago that I do not require such associations.
Being independant is not a bad thing!
Just sayin.....

AMAC is pretty good. Both of us joined for $16 a year, and using their discount at WalMart, we save $180 a year on one prescription alone. Plus they represent my values better. I junk every mailing I get from AARP.

Thanks everyone, sounds like AMAC is what I'm looking for. I've been a member of AARP for years but I think over time they've lost sight of the objective the organization was supposed to have.

AARP is a for-profit organization that makes money from endorsing other companies and soliciting membership.IMO they have changed from promoting seniors to promoting profits.

Any company that only wants to strengthen just one amendment and puts that first thing on their page is already in the pocket of another organization. The whole constitution and all the amendments should all be worth the same.
