BELTWAY VS HEARTLAND:

AARP Takes Heat Over Health Stand (NAFTALI BENDAVID and GARY FIELDS, 8/21/09, WSJ)

AARP thinks U.S. health care needs a sweeping overhaul. Problem is, a lot of its members don't agree. [...]

Mr. Obama cites AARP's backing as an irrefutable seal of approval, saying the group is "on board because they know this is a good deal for our seniors." But in a recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 46% of people over 65 were against the Obama health plan, with 28% favoring it.
