Dear John, Does anyone know what comes after a trillion? It’s a quadrillion and our national debt is headed there quickly unless we get a handle on our spending. R.L.
Dear R.L.: Does anyone know what compounded interest is? It’s the interest on top of interest in our nation’s debt and it is going to get us to a quadrillion faster than we know.
Dear John: The best argument for President Trump started years ago at the skating rink, when he was able to essentially eliminate government waste in money and time.
Regarding lowering deficits, why are the potential savings from every area of government not talked much about?
Once again, thank you for your ongoing thoughts. K.L.
Dear K.L.: I’m rooting for President Trump. I hope he can cut government waste and reduce the Federal budget deficit.
At the very least, I’d like to see him cut waste and use the savings more productively to help the economy and US citizens.
But a skating rink isn’t the Federal bureaucracy, which is far more slippery.
