David Certner spoke briefly to Judy Woodruff about the smear campaign from USA NEXT

Video

Certner: This shows you the absurdity of the debate. Someone would try to take a social security debate and somehow try and bring in the military, and homosexuality...

We've been waiting for AARP to come out and say something in it's own defense against the slander that USA NEXT is putting out.

Dave Johnson has more on USA NEXT

I did some digging and found a few things to add:

The report says that Texans for Lawsuit Reform, an industry front-group working for "tort reform," is a funder of USA Next. Well, here's a name you'll recognize: Enron's Ken Lay helped start and fund Texans for Lawsuit Reform! See the following, which is footnote 47 from my report The Attack on Trial Lawyers and Tort Law:

I also found this about W. H. Regnery, former Boardmember:

W.H. Regnery Sr., patriarch of the nation's premier conservative pubishing house, was one of the principal financiers of the America First movement which advocated an isolationist policy prior to WWII and part of a group that founded the National Review in 1944.
