Letter: Republicans are to blame for poor financial condition

To the Editor:

For those who have bought into the myth that the Republican Party is fiscally responsible, here are some facts that should destroy that myth: The fiscal 2017 budget passed by the Republican Congress and signed by the president had a deficit of almost $1 trillion. The budget deficit for fiscal 2018 is expected to be almost $1.1 trillion. Just remember, 1 trillion is 1,000 billion. 

It will be interesting to see how Republicans try to blame Democrats for these massive deficits.
