In his latest trip to New Hampshire, Republican Rick Santorum says the Social Security system would be in much better shape if there were fewer abortions.As I asked questions of Obama in my previous post I will stay consistent:
He says the system has design flaws, but the reason it is in big trouble is that there aren't enough workers to support retirees. He blamed that on what he called the nation's abortion culture. He says that culture, coupled with policies that do not support families, deny America what it needs - more people.
- Ricky, what's the unemployment rate right now? 9.8% based on BLS lies/>20% based on say Shadowstats right. Now lets say X number of babies hadn't been aborted 20+ years ago. Would that unemployment rate increase or decrease? I realize logic isn't your strong suit so please ask a staffer to go get someone to help.
- The Social Security system is a Ponzi scheme. Do you realize that that is a bad thing? Also are you aware that the Social Security system is filled with IOUs from the government borrowing on what was there so it doesn't really matter how many people are contributing to it now, it's still broke? You can have one of your staffers have someone help them read all about it here.
- Finally can you please provide data to support your claim that Social Security would be so much better off?
Rick Santorum is doing exactly what our criminal kleptocracy wants him to do. He's harping on emotional issues that are important but have little importance in the scheme of a successful government. Worse he's somehow blaming Roe v. Wade for our budget problems. That's incredibly absurd. I arrogantly maintain spending more than what is brought in for the budget problems. But then I'm more of a numbers guy, not a feelings guy like the Rickster.
