AARP as I said wants to be a leader in the national conversation about the question can we afford as a society to grow older. Well we feel like the answer is yes, of course we can, but that's going to take a lot of work. We feel like the health care program in this country has a lot of serious problems and must be reformed. We feel like the solvency of social security and other avenues for long term financial security must be addressed. We have a large number of baby boomers who are approaching retirement and we want to make sure that these systems that have been in place for a long time are updated, upgraded and remain viable and solvent. So AARP has been involved in a massive national effort to lead the conversation through our divided we fail effort and we've all during the election season it was important for us to keep the issue of health care and financial security out there in front of voters and then moving forward with the new administration it's important for us to push for bipartisan solutions for legislators and other officials to work across partisan lines to come up with solutions for some of the most difficult problems we face in terms of cost of health care, covering the uninsured, just access to health care in general for quality and affordable health care. We must solve that in this country and we must solve our social security solvency situation so that that remains viable for generations to come.
