Stop spending increases
Yes, the annual budget deficits of over $1 trillion continue ("Administration projects 4th straight year of trillion-dollar deficits," Southeast Missourian, July 29, page 1A, by Andrew Taylor)
The article failed to mention that this increases the public deficit to about $17 trillion.
If our nation, as we know it, is to be saved, this must stop. The place to start is for Congress next year to refuse, for the first time in our history, to approve an increase in U.S. public spending authority.
