Letters to the Editor

Government spending | Fool me twice, shame on me

A March 24 letter to the editor by Mr. Euglad (“Federal debt an investment in our future”) attempted to justify the national debt by comparing it to a household earning “$100,000 who has a $200,000 mortgage.” A more appropriate comparison would be to a household earning $100,000 who has a $200,000 credit card debt, plans on adding another $200,000 to the credit card, and still needs to take out a $200,000 mortgage.
