Don’t count on us ever get­ting out of this black hole

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

The fol­low­ing il­lus­trates, in stark per­spec­tive, our $14.3 tril­lion debt. If in our wildest dreams, the gov­ern­ment were to pay back our na­tional debt over a pe­riod of 10 years and made equal daily pay­ments, the pay­out would be a stag­ger­ing $3,833,253,473 per day.

That’s nearly four bil­lion dol­lars per day for 10 years — with no in­ter­est counted in.

Our coun­try is broke. Do the math: 14,000,000,000,000.3 / 3,652.25 days = 3,833,253,473 Shock­ing, isn’t it ? There is no in­ten­tion to pay this back. The bor­row­ing, the spend­ing, the in­fla­tion and ever-ris­ing taxes will go on and on — along with the lies. Sherm Tal­bot Elk­ton, Ore­gon
