Democrats bet AARP support to seal healthcare

San Francisco Chronicle, November 5, 2009

AARP will endorse sweeping healthcare overhaul legislation headed for a vote, officials said. An endorsement from the seniors lobby was critical when then-President George W. Bush pushed the Medicare prescription drug benefit through a divided Congress in 2003. House Democratic leaders are hoping it will work the same political magic for them as they strive to deliver on the health reform issue, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
