A student’s view

To the Editor: Why does our government think that to lower our debt we should spend more and more money each year?

I am not suggesting blaming our debt on the president because congress controls the government spending, but even I can see that bringing new programs and passing new laws takes money to carry forward. The question is who is fiscally responsible for America's big spending in times of great federal deficit?

Congress has a great deal in the mix, but how can we let the president go without questioning why did he not veto? Big spending is our problem, we cut spending to save America from being worthless.

Is it the programs that help the poor, or the programs that save the big businesses from bankruptcy? It is obvious who will suffer from our debt so why is it that the older generation is not helping out for the spending and borrowing they accumulated.

It is not them who are going to suffer it is their children and children's children who are going to starve and go hungry.

Let all of us start now paying back the debt so someday we can be fiscally stable and the country we once were to the eyes of others. There are many options to help this problem from growing; one controversial spending problem is that of welfare. America could be stricter and require a payback method, that way those who abuse the system can be weaned from the system and forced to find jobs.

I am only a mere student but I can see the cuts that have already happened in the more important places such as education. The day where American cuts education is a day where America should weep, because the uneducated will be taking care of you in the future.
