‘The Deal’

To the Editor: Now that the government has struck a "deal"  to avoid a default, they can go back to spending our country into oblivion. I, and probably most of you were taught at a young age "not spend money you don't have", to save a little each pay check for a rainy day, which we all have from time to time.  I guess our elected leaders don't know anything about that, or don't care as they receive their money whether they do a good job or not. They have spent our country into the poor house, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told the government it would reach the current $16.7 trillion debt limit  and it could no longer borrow to meet its obligations, if they didn't agree to a deal to borrow more money. The more they borrow, the more they spend.  

When will they cut a lot of the useless spending? I'll tell you when! When we all let them know they work for us, not the other way around. They won't stop until we have had enough.  Well, I've had enough. Have you?

If this, out of control spending, doesn't stop, we will be a third world country. China owns us now. While the White House gang gets everything from haircuts, travel, insurance, meals, retirement, etc free, well, it's free to them, but not free to us, we are paying their bill. I would be embarrassed to be bilking our hard working citizens like they do.

Hey, I've got a great idea, let's send them a message and let them know just how we feel.  I did, will you?
