AARP Investigated by House Ways and Means Committee
Breaking News. AARP congressional hearing. A. Barry Rand testifies. In question, why did AARP back Health Care Legislation. Answer seems to be $1 billion in their pockets at the expense of their members
AARP President Lee Hammond responds to a report from members of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Discussing the reports findings, the Congressmen highlighted three critical areas of concern: 1) the negative impact of AARP's advocacy efforts on its senior members, 2) profits gained by AARP as a result of its Medicare insurance-related business activities and advocacy efforts, and 3) whether AARP abused its tax-exempt status. The Members, who all serve on the Ways and Means Committee with jurisdiction over tax-exempt organizations and Medicare, turned the matter over to the IRS for further investigation.

TOKYO, March 16 (Xinhua) -- The National Police Agency said Tuesday that Friday's catastrophic quake and ensuing tsunami have left 4164 people dead and 7843 others unaccounted for in Japan by 6:00 pm (0900 GMT) Wednesday. A total of 2207 deaths have been firmed in worst-hit Miyagi Prefecture, said the police agency, adding the figures stood at 1, 391 and 511 in Iwate and Fukushima prefectures. According to local media reports, around 430000 evacuees are now living in shelters in eight quake-hit prefectures, including Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima. A lack of food, drinking water, medicine and fuel has been a common problem in quake-hit areas, where supplies of essential resources have been wiped out and communications infrastructures crippled. A 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific coastal areas of northeastern and eastern Japan, triggering enormous tsunami. Heavy casualties and extensive damage have been caused in the disaster.
