Watch out presidentials, AARP is coming



AARP is "developing a cadre of volunteers who will dog all candidates' footsteps and force the them to answer tough questions and confront issues vital to the state's large and growing senior population. On behalf of more than 8 million Floridians age 45+, volunteers will ask questions like:

*What's your plan to keep Social Security solvent?
*The private pension system is crumbling and millions of Boomers find their retirement security threatened -- what will you do about it?
*What's your plan for health-care reform?
*More than 195,000 Americans die prematurely every year because of medical errors  -- what is your plan to reduce these errors?"
