He writes over at their Social Security blog
“Club for Growth Rejects Investing Soc. Sec. Funds in Stocks”
Because that statement is completely false, whoever wrote it clearly has lazy fact-checking skills.
Well, he got my title right but he forgot to read the first sentence of my post. Notice I challenged readers to see if Cato provided any evidence for their claim that governments will use stock market investments for political purposes. Here is the best Mr. Roth can do:
In it, the good fellas over at Cato wrote that having the government, as opposed to individual workers, invest our Social Security taxes in the stock market, is NOT a good idea. We agree.
In it, they provide no evidence. And neither does Mr. Roth. I can see why the Club for Growth does not allow comments. Andrew – your readers are not angry that you persistently lie to them? You could take the lead of conservative economists that we at the Angrybear often read and respect, but I guess you’d be fired from the Club for Growth if you did.
