Nielson letter: National debt

I am truly troubled with what is happening in DC. There’s a concern over our ever increasing national debt, and it appears that all our elected representatives can do, is point fingers and place blame. It puzzles me how they allow this daily increase in our national debt, then give huge tax breaks that could help pay down this debt of ours. They give money to overseas countries because of their hardships, then want to cut benefits for veterans that fought/fight their wars and American citizens who have hardships. No, it’s not those darn Democrats nor is it those darn Republicans. It’s the voters that keep electing the same people to run the government they blame. Ousting all of them might change things. What we’ve been doing doesn’t appear to work.
