Letter to the editor: Wrong word for spending
To the editor:
In his current weekly newsletter Rep. Jacob LaTurner blames our current inflation on the Biden administration’s “reckless spending.” I wonder how he accounts for the inflation the rest of the world is experiencing? I would call current government spending on infrastructure, on reducing drug costs and on green energy thoughtful spending.
I would also note that while our annual federal deficit increased every year under the Trump administration, the Biden administration has cut it in half this year.
