"In Trust Betrayed investigative journalist Dale Van Atta, a veteran of the Jack Anderson column, reveals why the AARP always favors tax increases; when the AARP chooses between the interests of seniors and big government, big government wins every time; the AARP's darkest secret: discrimination against the elderly; how the AARP spent more than twice as much money on furniture for its posh headquarters as it spent on programs assisting the elderly; and the truth about the AARP Pharmacy Service." "Van Atta details how the AARP misrepresents its members, exploits the elderly for profit, and cynically fleeces younger Americans to finance its big government agenda. And he unveils the AARP's fatal weakness that could spell its imminent collapse."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
