    I am so sorry that people like you have such a problem with tax cuts and keeping more of your own money. It really is a waste of time on my part to defend that right even of yours to that tax cut. I do find it interesting that the ones screaming the loudest don't do their part and send in more of their money as a donation to that massive Federal govt. that they seem to want. I happen to believe that we don't need a 3.8 trillion dollar budget and that social problems are better handled at the state and local levels through charities and individual contributions. I like knowing where my money is going and what it is accomplishing. Doubt seriously that the charities and my church think I am not paying enough in Federal Income Taxes and would like to see that cut further so I can increase my contributions and actually do some good.

    Total debt increased as it always has because SS funds were used to make the deficit look better than it was and taking money from SS adds to the debt

    Unfortunately for you, Conservative, these two are mutually exclusive.

    No, unfortunately for you reading comprehension isn't a strong suit. I don't see people sending their tax cuts back that they claim they don't need. If you truly believe in that large massive federal govt. then do your part and send in more money. Stop whining about what someone else keeps, do your part and support those Federal bureaucrats.

    Or you could stop YOUR whining about taxes being raised on the rich and leave the U.S.. See? Problem solved. Better than your idea for sure.

    If they have a problem with keeping their own money, then why wouldn't they spend it?

    And there are rich liberals who think they should pay more, in case you don't know.

    pssst ... you didn't actually answer my question. Who said the 1997 tax cuts balanced the budget?

    Ask them why they keep complaining about tax cuts as tax cuts mean keeping more of what you earn. Liberals complaining about tax cuts don't seem to have a problem keeping theirs.

    Liberals to this day claim that Clinton had a balanced budget so how can that be with the Tax Relief of 1997 which cut taxes
