I didn't either. After paying a lot of taxes on the interest, then getting hit with the Medicare extra $$$, sure cut down the gain on the annuity.

I don't know or care what AARP Politics are. I have more other things to think about.
Do you know what Politics your RV/Home/Toad insurer has? Or how much they pay out to Lobbyist to keep your premiums high? I didn't think so.
United Healthcare pays off the 20% twice as fast as the BC/BS I had for the previous 7 years. And my online account info is more up to date.
