Reader worried about government bill to future generations

Published 10:00 am Wednesday, June 11, 2014

In yesterday’s edition of The Vicksburg Post Sid Salter is worried that if Thad Cochran is defeated, Senator Jeff Sessions will give Alabama a “huge advantage” in receipt of government spending.  Instead of contending over the last lifeboat from the Titanic, Salter should consider the debt to be paid by his children and grandchildren – if he has any – resulting from the unconscionable spending and growth of government practiced by Senator Cochran.  The bill will be paid. The currency by which future generations will pay it is a greatly diminished standard of living, and loss of personal freedom when state and federal governments confiscate more and more of their wealth.
