    I don't like Jerry Brown anymore than most people, but if a Republican governor made these claims you wouldn't be able to worship at his altar fast enough.

    Your dodge is also noted. In fact, you should work for Chrysler as much as you dodge.

    Never happened. Ike was the last President with a surplus. Show me the National Debt totals for any two consecutive years where the latter year was lower than the prior since Ike.

    You can't do it. Cause you have forked tongue like Jerry Brown ........ aka liberal ignorance .........

    I wonder if Whip could tell us where the budget for the Federal government is...I mean, it's been Obama's entire term, and NO budget at all.....Did Obama change parties?

    I think that the best Whip could do is pass us all another cold beer. Not necessarily bad, but not high on the scale of "what I am best at" either.

    And you think we should use post WW2 numbers to predicts growth rates today?

    You seem to be confused as to what a balanced budget is. Not surprising. A balanced budget, particularly a government budget, has revenues equal to expenditures. Hopefully it’s a budget with no deficits,if you keep your fingers crossed has a surplus.

    In 1999 Revenues were (1,827.5), outlays were (1,701.8), on budget (1.9) Social Security (124.7) Postal Service (-1.0 ) total (125.6 )

    In 2000 Revenues were (2,025.2)outlays were (1,789.0)on budget(86.4)Social Security (151.8) Postal Service (-2.0) total (236.2)

    In 2001 Revenues were(1,991.1)outlays were (1,862.8)on budget(-32.4)Social Security (163.0) Postal Service (-2.3)total (128.2)

    This all had two things in common going back to 1972, and more than likely as far as social security being added to the pot,going back further. Like I said SS is part of the national budget and they all had this in common= Debt Held by the Public. Debt Held by the Public, in 1972 was= 322.4. Debt Held by the Public, in 2001 was= 3,319.6.

    The last year for debt not held by public would be when Andrew Jackson was the Pres. 1836 . Actually paying off debt for a government is not a good thing, that’s a subject for another thread.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    California got a fair amount of fed dollars, raised taxes, and cut their budget. Well done!

    Cut the BS. Show me the year since Ike when the debt went down. Or even stayed the same (a balanced budget).

    You can't. Cause it did not happen.

    Notching my pistol as you contemplate knowing you have been busted for liberal nonsense.

    Re: Jerry Brown: California's deficit is gone

    We'll see how it all turns out. Now that California is gloating that it finally has a surplus, I'm sure all the different interest groups out there will descend on Sacramento trying to get their share of the pie. Undoubtedly, they'll try to take chunks out of the budget that are meant to pay down the debt.

    Keep in mind that the only reason that California has a surplus is because of Prop 30 and its tax increases. We will see if Jerry Brown and the Democrats there will keep a fiscally responsible budget by not throwing even more money at social services like they always do.
