    That's cuz they want to raise taxes on the wealthy.

    And that serves what purpose? How much money is the govt. going to get by raising taxes on the rich and what are the consequences of doing that?

    You really are a waste of time, that wasn't my intent to claim that the Tax relief act balanced the budget because i know there was no balanced budget other than by using intergovt. holdings which left a longer term debt there. The point was many here claim that Clinton had a balanced budget and that was due to tax hikes when the reality is there was the Tax Relief Act of 1997 which they want to ignore.

    What kind of good natured Liberal would I be if I didn't try to help a fellow DPer learn and grow from this experience?

    Yep, you would never think that you are smarter, or that by some strange circumstance that your pedigree outweighs the strength of the opposing argument would you?

    What does helping someone out in a time of need have to do with any of that?

    It looks to me he's wrong, but that's not a surprise, is it?
