To the editor:
Does it make sense for the U.S. to borrow another $1.2 trillion so that it can give funds to the International Monetary Fund to bail out Europe, thus, allowing those countries to defer the hard economic decisions we all have to make?
Does it make sense to pay somewhere between $200,000 and $700,000 to create one job that pays $50, 000 to $70,000 and whose permanent status is speculative, at best? Who, outside of the statehouse, believes that political appointees have the experience and expertise to be investment bankers and venture capitalists? Is it a wonder that there are conflicts with the Kansas Bioscience Authority?
Does it make sense to use reserve funds to increase allocations to education? But, where is the plan to replace those funds once gone and to continue that level of funding once the money runs out? Are we just putting off today’s reality until tomorrow?
Tell your representatives at the local, state and federal level that this community, state and country will not be able to aid or support anyone if it does not get its fiscal house in order.
