While Mr. Bush and friends continue to loot every last penny of Social Security surpluses, after boldly lying about how he wouldn't do that:

Canada Pension Plan:
Annual Report Home | Français |
...The CPP Investment Board invests the funds not needed by the CPP to pay current benefits. It is not expected to be required to contribute investment earnings to the CPP to help pay pensions until 2022. In order to build a diversified portfolio of CPP assets, the CPP Investment Board is currently investing cash flows in publicly traded stocks, private equities, real estate, inflation-linked bonds and infrastructure to balance the legacy government bond portfolio.

Seven Year Review:
And what a review it is!
....As at March 31 (billions Cauck Bucks)
Net assets
2000--44.5 billion
2006--98.0 billion

Some sweet Canadian returns. Safely invested, not being blown by pandering, ignorant, lying politicians.

Well, it's true. Main Canadian equity index has Canuck-whupped the big US indexes since the Bush "Jobs and Growth" wartime tax cuts scheme and looting of the SS surpluses. Almost double the returns of the main big cap US indexes, since Bush "Jobs and Growth".

Well said, Mr. Greenberg, well said. And our Bush friends? Zero(0) answers, ideas, solutions. None. Just keep on looting!, they say. Shocking! Tres mal. More univeral healthcare, funded pensions. Fewer budget-buster quagmires.
