To the editor:
America has reached a tipping point. Not only has the federal government grown in spending but in its reach to state and local governments.
The federal government now dominates activity that was traditionally reserved to the states, leaving little or no room for state-level innovation in policy areas such as education, transportation, health care, welfare and even law enforcement. They have so grossly expanded public-sector debt that, as of today, each and every man, woman and child carries a debt burden of over $45,000.
