Politicians, media won’t switch gears now | Letter

After looking at a dozen or so news sources this morning only one CNN gave front page coverage to the $666 billion federal budget deficit. This is yet another example of bias coverage by too much of the media that had no problem going after President Obama regarding things that had noting to do with the well-being of the country such as all the false news surrounding his birth certificate.

During the presidential campaign, Republicans blamed President Obama for out-of-control expenditures resulting in record deficit levels, putting future generation’s well-being at risk.

I expect politicians and the media not to now switch gears and give Congress and Donald Trump a green light to add $1.5 trillion more to the deficit in order to give tax breaks to billionaires and to corporations that are sitting on trillions of dollars overseas.
