McCain is Out of Touch with the AARP

One would think that McCain would understand retired persons. But in listening to him on C-SPAN in addressing members of the AARP, it's crystal clear that he's been living in too many houses. For crying out loud, in talking about health care and keeping their homes, he suggests getting 30 year mortgages at current values of their homes. What planet does he live on? Many of those folks can't afford to pay for the differences between what medicare pays and doctor bills, as well as prescriptions with the dumb donut rule even with their homes paid off.

I noticed the crowd was lukewarm to him, and most of them were not far from his age.
