Tell Congress to stop spending now!

To the Editor:

Like most people I have been following the debt talks in Congress. We do not have an income problem; we have a government that is spending too much. I have heard that the government brings in between $170-$220 billion a month, but continues to spend as much as $280 billion a month.

Blaming Obama, the Republicans or the Democrats is not going to do any good. We need to get all of them to quit spending money we don’t have. If the debt ceiling is raised all that will follow is that Congress will have more money to spend and it will just kick the crisis down the road a little farther. We must, as Americans, do what is required to stop this problem now before we send it to our kids and grand-kids and any other future generations. Tell Congress to stop spending now!
