Our national debt is now $28 trillion. 28 trillion seconds is 887,266 years. It would take light traveling at 186,000 miles per second approximately 4.8 YEARS to travel 28 trillion miles. This is longer than it would take light to reach Earth's nearest star, Proxima Centauri, which is 4.2 light years away.

Why is it ok to give companies tax breaks, but when it comes to giving help to people during a pandemic- no we can't have that. Why do people pay fast offerings and say it is ok for the church to financially help people. I live in a stake where the church is starting to feel the burden of people seeking help. Maybe some live life of privlage and are unaware of what is happening to those around them or they just decide to close their eyes. If we are going to complain against government spending let's start with the tax write-offs for executives lunches that were given or the billions of dollars that is given to the military or the lack of spending given to education.

Funny, I must have missed the article you guys published when Trump and the Republicans blew a two trillion dollar hole in the budget for the sake of tax cuts...
