Letter: Saving the auto industry, developing a national health care plan are unaffordable luxuries
David Goldman, ASSOCIATED PRESS
On the first night of the Democratic Convention and the same day our national deficit surpassed $16 trillion, I listened to Democratic leaders tout how proud they are of our president who saved the auto industry and developed a national health care plan.
It seemed as logical to me as celebrating a teenager taking a parent's credit card and buying luxuries the family cannot afford. The luxuries may seem nice, but the family (or our nation) won't be able to enjoy them when we're bankrupt. There comes a time when we need to stop celebrating irresponsible spending and demand leadership.
