Letter: Are we all addicted?
February 19, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Uh oh. Now the Republicans won’t even make a peep about the legislation coming out of Washington increasing the U.S. debt ceiling, which, by the way, seems to be occurring at least once every quarter now.

Our country just increased our borrowing limit without even a discussion about the ramifications of our enormous national debt. We are zooming past $17 trillion in debt on our way to $18 trillion. Does that scare the hell out of anyone else in this country? Or are we all going to just pretend together that this impending catastrophe is imaginary. I am used to the Democratic Party not being concerned about deficits and unfunded liabilities but when the Republicans are scared not too even challenge this irresponsibility, we have some major problems coming our way.

I guess we have collectively thrown in the towel as a country in trying to address our out-of-control borrowing and spending. Hand in hand as we march toward the proverbial cliff, oblivious that we are fast approaching the point of no return. Ignorance is bliss until it isn’t.
