What U.S. can af­ford

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

While I gen­er­ally sup­port fis­cal con­ser­vatism by the gov­ern­ment, if the fed­eral gov­ern­ment can no longer sup­port school lunches or Meals on Wheels, then surely it can no longer af­ford to pay for the pres­i­dent’s weekly golf­ing trips to Florida, or for his wife and young son to live separately in New York, or for his chil­dren’s Se­cret Ser­vice pro­tec­tion on their busi­ness trips to Mus­lim coun­tries that failed to make the ad­min­is­tra­tion’s new travel ban.

I be­lieve it is out­ra­geous that we would con­tinue to use pub­lic funds to pay for such lux­u­ries when we can­not pay for food for poor chil­dren and shut-ins. JOHN I. KAMINAR Bryant
