- Editor’s note: A few readers requested I post a simple side-by-side comparison of the Presidential candidates on key issues for voters.
- The best summary I have seen is in the October AARP Bulletin.
- You can read each candidates answers in their own words.
“AARP interviewed presidential candidates for their views on Social Security, COVID-19 and more”
“As we have during past presidential elections, AARP reached out to the candidates from the Republican and Democratic parties to talk with us about the issues important to you. Both President Trump and former Vice President Biden graciously agreed to live phone interviews, which took place in late August. We asked many of the same questions of each, and when appropriate, we followed up. We allowed the candidates to present their views and positions without commenting on the accuracy of their claims. The interviews were edited for clarity and length.
“Both candidates were eager and engaged in our conversations, which focused first on Social Security, then moved on to Medicare, nursing homes and other complex but vital topics. For the record, the candidates’ responses should not be interpreted as an AARP endorsement of any given policy position. AARP is nonpartisan and neither supports nor opposes candidates for office,” by AARP (formerly called the American Association of Retired Persons). Read more from the full report.
