Letter: Turn back from ruinous path
On Oct. 15, the Treasury Department reported that the nation's budget deficit in the 12 months ended Sept. 30 was $1.29 trillion. That means the government had to borrow 37 cents out of every dollar it spent as tax revenues continued to lag. China holds much of the notes we have had to borrow. Do you want this to continue?
Anyone intelligent enough to be reading this should know that a person or a couple cannot afford to pay 37 cents interest on every dollar they spend. Also, do you believe a government can continue on this path? If we continue the way we are now it will ruin our country for us, our children and our grandchildren. Please remember this when you vote on Nov. 2. If you believe you are not being served in your best interest, vote out those who brought our country to this dangerous place in our history.
