Letter: ‘Compromise’ has strange meaning in government

My great-grandchild, just born, owes about $46,000 as his part of the national debt.

Our esteemed president has cited plans to double that debt in the next 10 years, but has run into tea-party voices that say “no more,” to which we hear a cacophony of voices from both sides of the aisle, claiming that we must not take hard positions and must “compromise.”

As far as I can see, “compromise” to these people means that instead of doubling my great-grandchild’s debt in 10 years. We will only increase it by 80 to 90 percent but still reach the doubling point a few years later.

I am having a lot of trouble seeing how that can be good for my great-grandchild or for the country.

Go tea party!
