What manner of support would you like?
The United States has a very poor social safety net that is much less inclusive than other countries, particularly in Europe. We don't have socialized medicine. Our tax rates are much lower, which limits our ability to redistribute wealth. Consequently, our income inequality is the highest in the developed world. Our regulations are much more lax than in Europe. We have signed numerous free trade agreements with countries whose labor forces work at significantly lower wage levels, and then we wonder why our companies ship themselves overseas. These are all the effects of right-wing thought, and is evidence that America is a nation governed by two right-wing parties.
Er, welll sure if we define "doing well" to equal being more socialistic then by definition, we are doing badly by not being more socialistic. Not that that says anything useful, though.
