To the Editor:
Re Mike Zagata’s March 14 remarks about socialism, the National Debt, and energy:
• Our health, education and welfare can be entrusted to our legislatures and executives whom we vote in or out. Or they can be run by big corporations over which we have almost no control.
• Social security, our public schools and Medicare may be socialistic, but whatever we call them, they serve us pretty well.
• Yes, the national debt is much too high, but Reagan and Trump raised it and Clinton lowered it. And two big reasons it’s so high are excess military spending and reduced tax income from the very rich.
• If we do need more nuclear power, let it be under professional … not for-profit management!
