    Yes I am in independent. I dont allow the letters D and R influence my opinion. I think with facts not feeling, you should try it sometime.

You cannot seem to grasp that concept. Debt when Clinton took office was 4.4 trillion and 5.7 trillion when he left so where is the total surplus?
    A liar lecturing someone about telling the truth is like Michael Jackson lecturing someone about protecting children.

    You should try looking at actual verifiable facts instead of buying projections as fact, Tell me what facts I have presented that aren't accurate? I offer verifiable proof of what I post. Please tell me why CBO for example trumps actual data from the Treasury Dept?

    Seems to me it would be easy for you to prove that I lied by posting factual data from the actual numbers provided by the Treasury Dept. Why does CBO numbers trump Treasury Dept data? Do we pay debt service on CBO numbers or on Treasury Numbers?

    Nope. You are a liar, and convince me otherwise.

    I am not going to engage in debate with a liar until he retracts his blatantly dishonest points.

    I have convinced you with Treasury Data, how could there be a surplus and the debt rise? By the way where is your SS "contribution?" Let me help you there as well

    Calling me a liar may make you feel good but it sure doesn't do much for your credibility. Guess you don't care

    Look you have yet to prove me wrong on any issue, total debt went up thus there was no surplus under Clinton. You think it is ok to steal your contriubtion to SS to show a surplus in the public debt? how are these IOU's going to be repaid?

    Yup, and remember that Bush said he was going to give that surplus back to the people even though there was debt. That's the rhetoric he used to sell his tax cuts.
