Con­cerned About the Na­tional Debt

The Jewish Voice - - EDITORIAL -

Dear Edi­tor:

Debt clocks should be in­stalled in City Hall, Metropoli­tan Trans­porta­tion Au­thor­ity Board Room, Al­bany and Wash­ing­ton. Ev­ery time any Leg­isla­tive body raises debt and the Ex­ec­u­tive branch signs off, they should see what fu­ture gen­er­a­tions will in­herit. New York City, MTA, New York State and Wash­ing­ton each carry more long term debt than vir­tu­ally any other city, tran­sit au­thor­ity, state or na­tion. This is noth­ing to be proud of.

Sin­cerely, Larry Penner Great Neck
