LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Those against federal spending should stop taking it


I have given a lot of thought to the country's debt and have come up with what I think is a win-win solution!

I think everyone who is of the opinion that things such as Social Security, Medicare, Supplemental Security Income, Section 8 Housing, Medicaid, unemployment insurance, Head Start, etc etc, should be cut from the federal budget should immediately forego each and every one they are receiving.

That would certainly be the answer to their wish and would ease the spending they consider to fairer than ending the tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations - especially for off-shore banking and for sending their work overseas that contributes to the unemployment problem.

Now, don't you agree that is a good solution to the problem?
