60 Plus Assn
The 60 Plus Association is an American conservative advocacy group founded in 1992 and based in Arlington, Virginia, that bills itself as the conservatives' alternative to the AARP, (formerly the American Association of Retired Persons). Over the years, it has sought to privatize Social Security, end the federal estate tax, and strengthen gun rights. Current issues include opposing health care reform proposals; opposing federal energy standards; opposing the General Motors bailout; and opposing tax increases. 60 Plus is a member of the Cooler Heads Coalition.
