Better off

To the Editor:

Are you better off now than you were 12 years ago. Eight years of the Bush administration brought us the housing collapse and the Great Recession. Mitt Romney will bring us more of the same.

Romney supports proposals to cut Social Security benefits, raise its retirement age, and privatize it. Privatizing it will bring an end to the greatest program ever created by our government.

Romney-Ryan would create a privatized voucher program for Medicare and raise the eligibility age for benefits.

If you depend on, or soon will depend on, Social Security to survive, you don’t want to vote for Romney.

Romney would open federal lands to drill for oil. Those lands are our great national parks, such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, etc.

President Barack Obama is not responsible for the collapse of housing market, the foreclosures that followed, nor the unemployment it created.
