  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

  • Let's see if I understand this correctly. The president wants $1.6 trillion in new, higher taxes, but only $600 billion in spending cuts (with more than half of that from Medicare). And he wants to call this "reducing entitlement spending"? Seems like fuzzy math at its best.

    And all this in spite of our current, out-of-the-stratosphere, $16 trillion debt. Plus, he wants unlimited power to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling. (Which would raise the question, "Why even have a ceiling?")
    And Mr. President thinks the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has a problem? Well, I agree with him because they do have a real problem — it's called our current president and his policies and intentions. — Janet Eck, Ashland
