Letter to the Editor

The Republican borrow and spend economy is finally catching up with us and the payment on the credit card is due. For the last 7 years Bush has added 5 trillion dollars to the nations debt. They funded the wars and tax cuts for the rich with national debt. But Republicans don’t grasp the concept that debt has to be repaid. They think they can just borrow and spend forever.

People don’t realize the real cost of the war. It means that they won’t be able to send their kids to college. It means that parks will close. It means that China and Saudi Arabia will own more of our country and that they will be able to influence our laws. It means that less people will be able to afford homes. It means that less people will get health care. It means that old people will die homeless and in poverty. It means veterans will be put out on the street. It means lower wages, higher prices, more crime, and the death of the American dream.
