Letter: A trillion dollars is no joke

To the Editor:

President Donald Trump’s tax reform will add more than $1 trillion to the national debt. With a national budget in the trillions of dollars, this amount may not seem very big, but please consider this:

• 1 million seconds is about 12 days

• 1 billion seconds is about 31.7 years

• 1 trillion seconds is about 32,000 years

Who is kidding whom?
