CBS is reporting that as many as 60,000 members of AARP have cancelled their memberships in the elder's organization over the fact that the organization is moving to support President Obama's healthcare plans.

CBS also reports that a conservative seniors organization, the American Seniors Association, is adding thousands of new members each week. Some of the letters asking for membership were filled with "cut-up AARP cards."

(CBS) CBS News has learned that up to 60,000 people have cancelled their AARP memberships since July 1, angered over the group's position on health care.

"I think that probably the seniors are most upset with cuts in Medicare," said ASA President Stuart Barton.

The American Seniors Association is flat-out against President Obama's plan, which calls for $313 billion dollars in Medicare cuts over ten years. The AARP is widely viewed as supporting the President.

Of course, AARP is claiming that this is no big deal and that the loss of members is a "drop in the bucket."

AARP says for a group with 40 million members that adds hundreds of thousands each month, losing 60 thousand is just a drop in the bucket. But to the much smaller American Seniors Association it's a flood.

Whatever the case, it seems that AARP is losing thousands of members over their support of Obamacare.
