Champion spenders

To the Editor:

Don’t stop berating Speaker John Boehner or the House Republicans. After all, we would not want him or them to curtail any spending being planned now – on track for a $1.4 trillion deficit in 2013. That should make us the champions of all spenders.

The president’s 10-year plan also has that desired $1 trillion plus billions deficit per year – wow, now there is a concept for you. Anyone taking bets on just when the U.S. becomes totally bankrupt? Does anyone know another country that will pledge money to us so we can be saved?

We are not even sure that China could do that, but perhaps they will just buy us, like we bought Alaska so many years ago.

Jack and Jean Ehlebracht
