To the Editor:

We have to go into more debt to take care of Social Security, federal workers and Congress, plus Medicare.

The state of Illinois is in bad shape also. It spent all the retirement funds.

The state is in more trouble than the feds. But the feds can print more money; the state can’t.

Good luck.
