LETTER: Saving jobs or spending public dollars?

To the Editor:

So Trump saved 800 people their jobs. Sounds great, but how did he do it?

He gave the company $7 million in tax incentives. In other words, he spent $7 million public dollars to buy those jobs.

And though he might get a little of it back from those 800 working people, I doubt if it will come anywhere near the $7 million he spent. And unless he can make it up somewhere else, that is going to be added to our national debt.

That is the biggest problem we have in this country right now, and it will eventually destroy us if we do not get it paid off. Its great for the 800 people who got their jobs back, but it just adds more to our dismal outlook.
