So, how about that AARP?

You gotta follow this link to the AARP ACA "quiz": http://www.aarp.org/health/health-care-reform/info-11-2011/health-care-r...
Here was my feedback to AARP:
Just took your ACA quiz -- scored a 90 -- picked 2017 instead of 2020 for the disappearance of the doughnut hole. Unwarranted optimism, oh well. This isn't so much a quiz as a shill for ACA. How about a question on the Medicaid Clawback for those aged 55+? The Affordable Care Act would more accurately be called the Insurance Company Relief Act, not a surprising outcome, since they essentially wrote the enabling legislation.
Meanwhile you continue to sell insurance through the United Health Group - a corporate member of the Campaign to Fix the Debt. Some of us notice.
Needless to say I am a lapsed member. If I had it to do over, I would insert "shameless" in front of "shill."
On a more optimistic note, I think the rich are doing us a great favor by telling us what they really think. Sensing their contempt might be the ticket to end the 99%'s zombie trance.
Readers, what's your take on on this? Another organization running on brand fumes, like Consumer Reports?
