To the editor:
Our country faces critical budget shortages, and virtually every state is cutting education, medical care for the disabled and so much other vital public infrastructure that will result in all Americans living in a deteriorating social environment. Yet we are allowing our government to bankrupt us on wars that make us less secure.
We have senators willing to shred help such as unemployment insurance for the American people, supposedly over concern for deficits, yet the amount to help unemployed Americans is a paltry sum compared to the billions wasted every month on these wars we reap nothing but misery from. It is time for the American people to make our government good again and stop this insane rush to self-destruction.
