Letter: Do we have the will to reduce the deficit?

Letter to the editor

I write in reference to the Feb. 12 editorial regarding the federal deficit ("Latest budget deal in Congress does little more than kick the can ... again"). I felt the undercurrent of the editorial was that the politicians were not that interested in reducing the deficit. I think it is the citizens of this country who do not have the will to make the sacrifice necessary to reduce the deficit.

We talk a lot, but it will take more than just talk.

We have been living beyond our means in this country for a long time.
