Yes. Because his economic plan that not only increases the deficit but destroys Social Security and Medicare will be so much better than Obama's.
Social Security and Medicare have already been destroyed. You and most of the rest of America just don't realize it.
Just look at the difference one year has made. 2008 projection is below:
And here is the 2009 projection:
How can your Social Security fund lose money? It is a huge investment capital fund that should be generating nmore money as a massive whole than any number of small individual funds could.
The Canadian one is a real investment fund - my Canada Pension Plan deductions all my life went into that fund whose REVENUES now pay my pensions, from the income generated, not the endiwment capital. the workers provided through our payroll deductions.
Our government is not legally allowed to touch it for anything else. If they did the Auditor General would report it to Parliament. Why doesn't not work like that in the US? I do not understand how the bastion of freemarket investment cannot succesfully manage a fund even the size of the Teacher's Federation of Ontario's' pension fund (that owns all kinds of stocks. The Ontario Teachers Federation owns huge stakes in a widely duversified potfolio of profitable multinational corporations globally.
I find it stunning the Americans cannot seem to find the matching formula if our teachers' unions' fund managers can.
Huge pots of money are used to make MORE money.
So the whole "social security is going bankrupt" is an a crock. Manage it like a REAL pension fund and it wont go bankrupt unless the entire global economy collapses.
(For Ontarios teachers not to get their pensions every singlecorporation the fund has a stake in would have to have been wiped off the face of the earth.
You have to be totally incompetent to SHRINK a multi-billion dollar investment fund unless you were looting it.
(Our Auditor General is there to prevent that. Any Party that tried to seriously make the argument that the fund might be going bankrupt would be a demonstrating right there they lacked the financial acumen to be given the responsibility of governing. the economists would laugh themselves silly. The voters and taxpayers understand investment funds well enough and it HAS been working very well that we would bevery skeptical of such an alarmist claim.
(the fund is reassessed regularly too and the report made public.)
