Letter to the Editor
There really is no difference between deficit spending and tax increases. They are the same thing. A deficit is like a tax charged to your credit card that you have to pay later – with interest. So the idea that we are in some sort of an economic recovery when the deficit is 500 billion a year is nonsense. We are bleeding money and bleeding it really fast. And every year Bush have been president the bleeding gets worse.
We are borrowing money from the future so the rich can get a tax break today. And that is as wrong as you can get. Its time to cut the government’s credit card and demand that we make the hard choices now before we get so far in the hole that we never crawl out.
