if he had promised that, as President, he would:
Empty the Social Security trust fund by $507 billion to help
offset fiscal irresponsibility and at the same time slash
Social Security benefits. Cut Medicare by 17
percent and reduce veterans’ benefits and military
pay. Eliminate overtime pay for millions of
Americans and raise oil prices by 50 percent. .
Give tax cuts to businesses that sent American jobs
overseas, and, in fact, by policy encourage their departure.
. Give away billions of tax dollars in
government contracts without competitive bids.
. Involve this country in a deadly and highly

and turn it into the worst deficit in the history of the
United States, creating a debt in just four years that will
take generations to repay. .
