AARP is an issues oriented organization. In other words we take positions on issues of importance to seniors but we are non-partisan and non-political in the sense that we do not endorse candidates, we do not give money to either candidates or to political parties. We don't endorse on a partisan basis. We simply take positions on issues both at the federal and at the state level which we feel reflect the needs and wishes of our members. Now obviously with as many members as we have, every single member would not necessarily line up with every position that AARP takes on on a social issue at the national level that's done through a national legislative council and at the state level it's done through an advocacy council that we have plus our executive council. So there's a lot of deliberation as we decide what approach we're going to take to various issues.
