    What? You have GOT to be kidding here....Obama ran Trillion dollar deficits every year he has been in office. The highest before him was less than half that.

    Who said the 1997 tax cuts balanced the budget?? That sounds like a strawman to me.

    That is your opinion and you are going to stick with it. You don't have any idea how economic growth affects govt. revenue and for some reason have no problem with the 3.8 trillion dollar budget we have. You also keep ignoring that Obama has added 4.6 trillion to the debt in 3 years and projected to add another 1.1 trillion in 2012 without any troops in Iraq. You keep buying that liberal rhetoric and keep allowing liberalism to make a fool out of you

    How many times here have people claimed that Clinton balanced the budget and left Bush with a surplus? If there was a surplus how did 1.4 trillion get added to the debt during the Clinton term?

    I wonder how you could still wonder, given that it's been explained to you at least 20 times.

    No one claims that he ran a surplus EVERY year. He did have to fix the screwed up tax system that he inherited from Reagan/Bush.

    What has been explained to you hundreds of times is that we have a spending problem not a revenue problem. What you ignore is that the tax relief act of 1997 increased Govt. revenue just like the full implementation of the Bush tax cuts after 2003 and Reagan after his tax cuts that went into effect in 1982. liberals are so confusing and so out of touch with reality.

    He added 1.4 trillion dollars to the debt and it went up every year. That is a fact that liberals want to ignore.

    Seriously? Even you don't believe that, do you? You do understand that the increased revenue was the result of the dotcom bubble -- not the tax cut, right? OTOH, it's pretty obvious that the tax cut helped inflate the bubble, just as Bush's tax cuts helped fuel the real estate bubble.

    At least 20 times. Gross debt, public debt, blah blah blah. Why are you pretending you don't understand?
